Producer Firoz Nadiadwala and director Anees Bazmee are reportedly in talks with Bachchan and Rekha for the sequel of their 2007 hit 'Welcome'.
Big B has already been approached to play the role of RDX-- a don played by the late actor Feroz Khan in the first part, while Rekha has been offered to play the role of a wealthy fashionista. "We are considering Rekhaji for a role which will have love angle between Nana and Anil. But it is too early to talk about all this as nothing is decided and confirmed. As there are three-four veteran actresses that we are thinking of it all depends if they like it or not, their dates and money issues," Bazmee said.
Bazmee has not yet met Rekha or narrated the part to her. "I am a huge fan of Rekhaji. I wanted to work with her. I feel since it's a comedy film, Rekhaji will do justice to her part as she has a superb comic timing," he said.
The erstwhile reel life couple whose onscreen and offscreen relationship has always provided a fodder to Bollywood gossip mills. The two first acted in 'Do Anjaane' (1976) and went to do films like 'Muqaddar Ka Sikander' (1978), 'Mr Natwarlal' (1979), 'Suhaag' (1979), 'Silsila' (1981) to name a few.
Actors Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor will be reprising their roles in 'Welcome Back', while John Abraham and Shruti Hassan are the new additions. The film is expected to go on floors in a month's time.
