Circa 1993, Amitabh Bachchan and Sridevi came together for Mukul Anand’s Khuda Gawah. 18 years later, the actors reunited at the Pune airport for Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish, a film that marks the comeback of Sri to Hindi cinema.
Amitabh who has been roped in for a cameo in the film arrived at 10 am in his luxury sedan and entered the vanity van. Dressed for the shot, the actor rushed inside the airport. The shoot wrapped up around 3 pm with only a short lunch break in the middle.
Once outside, Amitabh was surrounded by security guards. Boney Kapoor was waiting for him outside the vanity van. Sridevi joined the two men soon enough.
About the shoot, Bachchan tweeted: Shooting today with the effervescent Sri Devi after eternity almost .. for R Balki’s wife’s directed film English Winglish. Sri Devi still the same .. spontaneous and lovely ..!! Gauri, R Balki’s wife .. directing film .. woman power at peak .. my second experience .. eventually women will take over the world !
Around 100 foreign artistes, mostly sporting the American Customs and Immigration Department blue suits were seen having lunch.
