It has been many years since the two have worked together but are amongst the most popular pairs from the 90s. Nobody till date has been able to recreate the magic these two actors brought on-screen. Along with being in love with their acting and movies, fans also adore the songs Amitabh and Rekha have featured together in. Here are the best songs of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha together-
Humka Maafi Dai Do is from the movie Ram Balram (1980). The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. In the movie, Bachchan played the role of a police officer named Balram, who comes to Shobha’s (Rekha) house to investigate a robbery that has taken at her place. Upon seeing Rekha for the first time he is smitten by her, paying more attention to her than actually what has taken place at her home. The song takes place when Shobha realises that Balram has lied to her only to impress her and she warns him to stay away. The song had both romantic and comedic elements with Bachchan’s character trying everything to get his ladylove to forgive him.

When Sikandar joins her performance she is left stunned as it is the first time that someone has done so and from his words, she can feel a connection towards him.
