Due to this, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha’s last film Silsila fell on the box office.
The cost of this film in the year 1981 was 2.5 crores. At the same time, the film earned only 1.25 crores at the box office. ‘Silsila’ also featured Amitabh, Rekha, Jaya as well as Sanjeev Kumar in the lead role.
Released in 1981, ‘Silsila’ was the last film of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha in which they were seen together. Let me tell you that this film was made by the famous filmmaker Yash Chopra of his era. It is said that in this film, Parveen Babi and Smita Patil were going to be replaced by Rekha and Jaya. However, Amitabh and Rekha’s affair was gaining a lot of headlines during that time. In such a situation, Yash Chopra took Rekha and Jaya in the film to redeem it at the box office.
According to media reports, even though this film is included in Bollywood’s epic films today, it fell face-down at the box office at the time of release. Yash Chopra’s wife Pamela once said in an interview about why this film flopped, “In our country India, marriage is considered to be a very sacred bond, so in this film, two married people go out of a marriage and someone else People did not like to love. This was the reason that the film could not show anything special at the box office.
