Rekha and Kabir Bedi’s reunion left netizens discussing the famous crocodile scene.
“She is remarkably forgiving considering you almost fed her to the crocodiles,” a social media user quipped.
“Hahaha this reminded me of how you threw her off the boat to the crocodiles. Childhood memories revisited,” another one wrote.
‘Khoon Bhari Maang’, which was released in 1988, is a remake of the Australian mini-series Return to Eden (1983). The film became widely popular because of its storyline, songs and of course the famous crocodile scene.
The scene involved Aarti (Rekha) being pushed off a boat by her second husband, Sanjay (Kabir Bedi), into the jaws of a crocodile.
However, Rekha’s character survives miraculously and undergoes cosmetic surgery before plotting revenge on Kabir Bedi. (ANI)
