Days ahead of Sridevi’s death anniversary,Amitabh Bachchan delighted us with a nostalgia dipped photo of himself and the late actress, also starring Salman and Aamir Khan. Big B, who had previously written on social media that he took along Sridevi, Salman and Aamir for their debut concert experience, shared more details from the trip on his new post, which features a photograph from what appears to be the rehearsals ahead of the show. In the photo from London’s Wembley Stadium, Sridevi, dressed in her signature retro persona, can be seen accompanying Amitabh Bachchan. Salman can barely contain his excitement while Aamir appears to be bemused by the happenings.
The 76-year-old megastar had just one word to describe the experience. “Historic,” he said, explaining that the 1990 concert witnessed the first ever performance by an Indian star and that it was attended by an audience of 70,000 people. “My concert at Wembley Stadium… first ever by Indian… I took Sridevi, Aamir and Salman for their first concert… 70,000 people… historic! This is the Wembley Stadium before it was rebuilt and altered… you see the altered now often on Premier League Football,” Big B captioned the photo.
Now, we know more about this day, courtesy a throwback post by Amitabh Bachchan from December 2017, just months before Sridevi’s tragic end. Big B had shared another click from what appears to be the same day to write that at the Wembley concert, he and Sridevi performed to the song Jumma Chumma from the movie Hum, even before its release in 1991. Neelam Kothari had also accompanied them to London.
