Yester-year pair Amitabh-Amrita in same movie!

Charismatic, spunky senior actress Amrita Singh (yes, Sara Ali Khan’s mom) may have made her filmy debut with ‘Betaab’ (1983) opposite Sunny Deol some 36 years ago. But even today dignified ‘Dingy’ (that used to be her fond nickname), still has that zestful zing and passion for acting.

The outspoken Amrita who acted in a string of movies in the recent past, either in cameo roles (‘Hindi Medium’) or as a striking supporting character (‘2 States’ and ‘Flying Jatt’) will now be seen in this movie ‘Badla’ starring superstar Amitabh Bachchan (as a seasoned lawyer) and Taapsee Pannu (the main suspect) which released yesterday to terrific box-office responses.

“Out here Amrita plays a feisty Punjabi mother in this slick murder mystery shot in the U.K. Since there are several startling twists in the tale, it is not right to reveal more details,” according to an associate of ‘Badla’ director Sujoy Ghosh.

Besides reuniting the iconic ‘Pink’ combination Big B and Taapsee, ‘Badla’ also brings together in the cast yet another former screen-couple. Retro-film buffs will recall that Amrita was romantically paired opposite Amitabh in this mega-hit Manmohan Desai-directed super-hit movie ‘Mard’ which released in 1985.

Later, they even co-starred in more films like ‘Toofaan’ and ‘Akayla’. Wonderful to see both of them in the same movie (‘Badla’) once again, of course playing independent screen-characters. It now remains to be seen if Amrita is cast as a co-artiste with her real-life actress daughter Sara Ali Khan.
