Since her untimely demise, a lot of throwback pictures of Sridevi have emerged online. Earlier this week, an image of the actress with her daughter Janhvi Kapoor went viral. Now, another image of Sridevi from nearly 30 years ago is creating buzz online.
The picture, which was apparently clicked in 1990, shows Big B with Sridevi, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, in what was the latter three's first ever concert performance. The BTS photo from their rehearsals at Wembley Stadium was snapped as they were apparently preparing for their 'Jhumma Chumma' concert.

While Sridevi and Aamir are looking away from the photographer, Amitabh and especially Salman have their eyes fixed on the camera. The old Wembley stadium is dimly lit in the background. Big B replied to the tweets with a few more details. Over 70,000 fans had attended the concert, which was the first apparently the first concert from India to be held at the stadium. Aamir was a couple of movies old at the time, while Salman had just completed filming Maine Pyar Kiya.
This was not the only picture of that mega event. Another picture of the quartet from the Wembley concert emerged a while back. Actress Neelam Kothari also features in the photo.

Apart from featuring two of India's most famous Bollywood actors at the time, the concert was perhaps most remembered for Sridevi grooving to the song Jumma Chumma from the movie Hum. Interestingly, neither the song nor the movie had been released at the time of Sridevi's performance.
Sridevi and Amitabh Bachchan were a charismatic couple whenever they shared the screen. The actors worked together on a few movies in the 80s and 90s like Aakhree Raasta and Khuda Gawah and with the latter turning out to be a super hit. The two were reunited for a short, but memorable scene in English Vinglish when Sridevi was in her flight travelling to the US.
Meanwhile, Thugs of Hindostan was the first time Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir appeared together in a movie. Salman and Big B have already done quite a number of films together, including Baabul, Baghban and God Tussi Great Ho.
