The Top 5 woman in Big B’s life


Worst Films Ever

For a superstar like Amitabh Bachchan who has ruled for four decades, he has been paired opposite almost every actress from every era. From the senior actresses like Waheeda Rehman, Nutan and Saira Banu to the younger brigade like Shilpa Shetty, Manisha Koirala to Tabu, Big B has shared screen space with almost every Bollywood lady.

Today on the eve of his 66th birthday, we speak about the top five actresses with whom he shared the best screen chemistry. And mind you, wife Jaya Bachchan comes much down at number 4. Mind you, we said ‘screen’ chemistry.

Amitabh Bachchan - Rekha

Star cast of "Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki"

Obviously it’s an easy guess that Amitabh Bachchan shared the most sizzling screen chemistry with Rekha. The couple was a huge hit in the late 70s. Though they weren’t paired in their first film together Namak Haraam (1973), soon they set the screen ablaze with their pairing in films like Muqaddar Ka Sikander, Mr Natwarlal, Suhaag, Ram Balram any many more.

But their most controversial chemistry so far was in the film Silsila which also had wife Jaya Bachchan in a love triangle opposite Amitabh. This 1981 film was a bold attempt on extra-marital affair and with the very thin line that separated the film from fact, it created quite a stir in the personal lives of the 3 actors. Post Silsila Amitabh and Rekha never shared screen space in any film.

If it was controversial with Rekha, with Parveen Babi Amitabh Bachchan shared the most comfortable chemistry. They gelled together in films as a couple seamlessly. If one thinks from Parveen Babi’s point of view, one could easily identify the yesteryear actress as a costar to Amitabh Bachchan in several hits of late 70s and early 90s.

There were films were they weren’t paired opposite each other like Kaala Pathar (1979) and Suhaag (1979) but Amitabh still had some connection with Parveen like his presence in the Jawani Jaaneman song in Namak Halaal (1982).

When Amitabh and Parveen Babi were still a hit couple, Parveen Babi played Amitabh’s daughter in 1982 in the film Desh Premee. Well, Amitabh had a double role in the film as father-son duo where the son doubled as brother to Parveen.

In the early 80s, they were a hit couple in films like Naseeb, Desh Premee, Satte Pe Satta and Nastik. Interestingly their chemistry came into public eye much later in the early 2000 with films like Baghban, Babul, Veer Zaara and the Bhojpuri film Ganga where they played an elderly couple.

There were films like Do aur Do Paanch, Andha Kanoon and Trishul where they weren’t romantically paired opposite each other but with the immense screen-presence that Amitabh boasts of, he still struck some kind of a connection with Hema Malini. Remember the dialogue ‘Tumhara naam kya hai Basanti?” in Sholay that Amitabh asks Hema.

In their very first film where they shared screen space in Gehri Chaal (1973), Amitabh Bachchan played an elder brother to Hema Malini. Hema was paired opposite Jeetendra in the film while Amitabh had a grey shaded character.

But with Zanjeer, Amitabh achieved both stardom and Jaya Bachchan who in fell in love with during the making and soon got married in real like.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee cast them together in films like Abhimaan, Chupke Chupke and Mili and efficiently translated their real life chemistry onto the reel life. Silsila, obviously, was a turning point in their reel life as well as real life and post that film, they shared screen space after a long sabbatical in Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum in 2001.
