Bachchan and Sulochana also worked in films like ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’, ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ and ‘Dostana’.

A well-known actress in Marathi and Hindi cinema, Sulochana began her career in the 1940s and appeared in over 250 films.

She played mother roles extensively on-screen in Bollywood films of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, almost always dressed in a white sari. Apart from Bachchan, she worked with all the major stars of the era including Sunil Dutt, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Dilip Kumar.
