Rare Moments when Bollywood Titans came together!

It is everybody’s desire to click a picture with star of millennium Amitabh Bachchan.

Hence when Badshah Khan aka Shah Rukh after his successful hit blaze of films like BAAZIGAR and DARR got the opportunity to click a picture with Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in the mid 90’s he had butterflies in his stomach. 

To win over the heart of superstar Amitabh Bachchan, the budding actor also became Bachchan Sahab’s hair dresser as Shah Rukh happily held a mirror towards Big B, while Bachchan gave touches to his final look. 

Sharing the rare picture on twitter SRK wrote, “My 1st ever photo shoot with the Maestro. I remember I rested my hand on his shoulder ever so lightly lest I ‘soil' him”


Another picture that made history was that of ‘Original’ Superstar Rajesh Khanna and his successor to the throne of Superstar Amitabh Bachchan coming together for a shot. 

Renowned photographer Gautam Rajadhyaksha, who clicked the magical movement in 1991 for the Movie Magazine cover said, “The time fixed for the shot was 7 pm but Kaka (Rajesh Khanna fondly called) was known to be a late comer and Amiatbh Bachchan a punctual. Besides there existed a cold war between the two hence I doubted whether the shot would be possible but to my pleasant surprise the duo arrived for the shot hand in hand!” 

Finally the third picture which shall remain embodied in golden memories is that of three generation of Superstars coming together for the cover photo of Filmfare magazine, which celebrated 100 years of Indian Cinema. 

The trio of course is Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, truly a majestic movement! The shot was held at Dilip Kumar’s bungalow.
