Amitabh Bachchan’s reaction was EPIC when Waheeda Rehman slapped him on the sets of ‘Reshma Aur Shera’
Bollywood as an industry might have been growing at a rapid pace, but some actors are legendary and will always remain iconic. Legendary actress Waheeda Rehman is still considered as one of the best performers cutting across eras. Now, the actress appeared on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ and shared an interesting anecdote involving Amitabh Bachchan.
The two legendary actors have worked in several films. However, in 1971, in ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, Waheedaji had to slap Amitabh Bachchan. Yes, you have read it right! Waheeda Rehman had appeared alongside Asha Parekh and Helen on ‘TKSS’.
While talking about the scene and Amitabh’s reaction Waheeda Rehman stated, “Maine Kahan Amitabh, bahut kas ke lagane waali hun. Shot hua aur Amitabh ne kahan, Waheeda ji, kaafi achcha tha (I said, Amitabh, I’m going to hit you hard. After the shot, he said, Waheeda ji, it was quite good)”
The actress has also spoken about it in a book titled ‘Conversations With Waheeda Rehman’. Waheedaji has mentioned that post that scene, movie’s director and actor Sunil Dutt advised her that next time if she is supposed to slay someone onscreen she should pretend it and not do it in real.
‘Reshma Aur Shera’ was produced and directed by Sunil Dutt. The film was quite appreciated and lauded.
