One of the hottest stories of the tinsel town which interests people till date is Amitabh and Rekha’s love story. The much-talked relation between the couple has always remained a mystery for the couple since they never accepted their relation in public.
So, how did it all begin and how it ended? Here is the unfolding secret behind this love story.
Their love story started during the shoot of movie Do Anjane. During the initial days of relationship the couple met in a bunglow that belonged to Rekha’s friend. Everything was sailing smooth when an incident happened. During the shoot of Ganga Ki Saugandh Big B reportedly lost temper when a co actor misbehaved with Rekha. After this the couple couldn’t anymore hide their link-up and hook-ups and it all came in the media limelight. The gossip mill started about the couple’s love affair. There were even headlines that the couple got secretly married. However the speculations strengthened when Rekha showed a bold front and appeared with Sindoor and mangalsutra in Rishi Kapoor and Nitu Singh’s marriage. The whole B-town had a topic to talk then.
Reportedly after the incident Jaya invited Rekha at her home for dinner and candidly said she won’t ever leave her husband no matter what. And thats what she is doing till date.
“While Rekha believed that Amitabh kept their relationship under covers, for he never wanted to hurt his image, family and children, they both loved each other that’s all what she needed.”
Amitabh Bachchan despite the superfluous love for Rekha, never admitted it in public. On the other hand, Rekha boldly admitted her love for him. Silsila was this enigmatic couple's last film together.
Well, movie Silsila remained always famous of potraying real life into reel life as Jaya played the role of his wife and Rekha as his girlfriend and the same story was going on in real life.
After Silsila the couple’s relationship began to fade. Reportedly Amitabh Bachan started ignoring Rekha after that. Rekha wanted to marry Amitabh and did not want to settle down with the tag of the 'other woman' in Amitabh's life. She realised she has no future in this relationship. With this, their passionate love story came to an end, both on and off screen.
Interestingly, even though Rekha and Big B parted their ways, Rekha is still famous for making appearances with Sindoor. While some people call it her fashion statement many believe that Rekha wears Sindoor for Big B. Sadly, Rekha couldn’t make her marriage last long with Delhi-based businessman Mukesh Aggarwal. The famous love story did mark a closure but the heavy aura of their love story still lingers on!
“Perhaps some love stories are destined to remain incomplete for true love is not all about possession!”
