Mumbai: It was a classic coming together of three generations of Bollywood when Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan assembled for a special photo shoot to commemorate 100 years of Indian cinema at the "Mughal-e-Azam" star's residence here.
Dilip, 90, reigned over the silver screen in the 1950s and 1960s with hits like "Madhumati" and "Devdas", Amitabh ruled the box office in the 1970s and the 1980s by churning out super hits such as "Zanjeer" and "Sholay" and became a superstar, and Shah Rukh Khan became the undisputed 'king' of Hindi cinema in the 1990s which saw him in successful films "Baazigar", "Darr" and "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge".
They shot together for a leading film magazine.
"Photo shoot with Dilip Saheb and Shah Rukh for the cover of Filmfare - 100 years Indian cinema... threatening Filmfare to put out pictures," tweeted Amitabh.
Nevertheless, the 70-year-old veteran shared a few fun-filled snapshots with Shah Rukh from the shoot on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
"So for now just a few pictures of the day done at Dilip saheb's house for a photo shoot with him and Shah Rukh for the cover of Filmfare, celebrating the 100 years of Indian cinema," Big B posted on his blog.
