Mumbai: 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.
