Bollywood’s evergreen star, Amitabh Bachchan has said that he would have loved to woo Waheeda Rahman with some poetry if he had not married Jaya Badhuri. Ignoring the fact that Waheeda was six years his senior, Amitabh showered praises on her beauty and conduct.
“She’s been one of my favorite actors along with Dilip Kumar saab. She is the epitome of an Indian beauty, of simplicity… so genuine, soft and beautiful. If I had to woo her, perhaps I would recite a poem,” said Amitabh during a meeting hosted by India Today. “It’s too late in the day to do that now,” laughingly added the 71 year old angry old man of Hindi cinema.
He had high praise for his wife Jaya too who took the difficult decision to leave films and care for the family.
