During their love story, controversies also raised many times. Rekha thought to express her love to ‘Big B’ many times but then again she kept silent. Amitabh Bachchan is living a happy life by marrying Jaya, but Rekha’s life is still living in the loneliness. Even after decades, their relationship still an unsolved kink for the media. Here we are exposing some unheard things related to Rekha and Amitabh to you.
Once wore Sindoor and mangalsutra
When the spark of love between Rekha and Amitabh was blazing, on 22 January 1980 Rekha reached the wedding of Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor and her close friend Neetu Singh by wearing Sindoor and Mangalsutra too. After many rumors, Rekha had told in an interview, ‘That evening she reached the program directly from the shooting set. Sindoor and Mangalsutra were part of her character and she forgot to take it off. ‘ While at an award function, Rekha said that ‘Sindoor is a part of fashion in the city she is from.’
Jaya Bachchan’s entry and Rekha’s statement on already married Amitabh
Actually their love story started on sets of the film, Do Anjaane (1976) when Amitabh was already a married man. During an interview with Filmfare in 1984, Rekha made a big disclosure on her and Amitabh’s relationship. She said that no one cares what I want. I am another woman. She also targeted Jaya without naming that the other person is poor in the eyes of everyone. How can one live under a roof with a person when he knows that he loves another.
She said “Try to think that I could not tell that person how I am feeling. I could not feel what is happening to that person.” Rekha further said in the interview, “This feeling was the worst. Even death would not be so bad. I accept the death but this feeling of helplessness was not acceptable at all.” Rekha had also said in this interview that Amitabh Bachchan has had 10 affairs. Rekha further said, “There is love between us, so I don’t care who thinks what about it. Maybe Amitabh did it to protect his image, family, children which is a very good thing. What the public thinks about it, he doesn’t care. “
Rekha stated Jaya Bachchan unsafe
When Simi Grewal asked Rekha about Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh from Rekha in the show Rendezvous with Simi Grewal, she answered every question with utmost care. Simi asked Rekha about her relationship with Jaya Bachchan and said, “I don’t think that Jaya as being a woman is a poor person and an insecure.” Simi said on Rekha’s answer, “Yes … a woman feels safe only when the man (husband) makes her feel safe.” Simi’s gesture was about Amitabh and Jaya’s relationship. In response, Rekha said … No, it is not necessary. On the relationship between herself and Amitabh, Rekha said, I don’t care what people think. I love him for myself, not to show anyone. I love him and he speaks to me, people say that poor Rekha is mad at him, but I do not care what they think.
When Jaya Bachchan got to know about Amitabh And Rekha’s relation
Once Rekha reached Jaya home and had a good meal, they talked about the decoration of the house and other things. Amitabh’s name did not come in the middle. But when Rekha was going back, Jaya said only one thing to her that shocked Rekha. Jaya said to Rekha, “I will never leave Amit” and Rekha understood that she will never be able to get Amit. Rekha stunned everyone with her decision to marry in 1990. She married Mukesh Agarwal, a Delhi based businessman.
Only a year after their marriage, her husband committed suicide and Rekha was left alone again. In 2008, Rekha once again surprised everyone when she reached with Sindur on her head in an award function. Amitabh had also reached the function but he was seen stealing the sight from Rekha. Both may have moved forward in their lives, but in the mind of Rekha, Amitabh still lives somewhere. At the same time, Amitabh is very happy with Jaya Bachchan and his entire family.
