Silsila was trashed by media at time of release: Big B

Remembering his 1981 romantic-drama Silsila as it completes 35 years today, megastar Amitabh Bachchan says critics panned the movie when it was released but now it’s revered as a classic.
Silsila, directed by Yash Chopra, also starred Bachchan’s wife Jaya and Rekha, whose on-screen chemistry with the Piku star stands as one of Bollywood’s best ever.

“35 years of Silsila... A film that was trashed by media as ‘silly sila’... Today referred to as a classic (sic),” Bachchan wrote on his Twitter page. The movie was a box-office disappointment but is now considered a classic.

The 73-year-old Te3n actor also reminisced his 1982 film Khud-Dar, which co-starred Parveen Babi, Vinod Mehra and Sanjeev Kumar. “Khuddar 34 years!! Just memories now... Released when I was in Breach Candy after Coolie accident!”  Bachchan had got critically injured on the sets of Coolie while filming a fight scene with co-star Puneet Issar which almost cost him his life.
