There has been gossip about many stars in the world of Hindi cinema, but Amitabh Bachchan-Rekha gossip has rarely lasted this long. Neither Bachchan nor Rekha are talking about it now. Aging stars live their own lives. But for fans, Bachchan and Rekha are his favorite star couple. There are many people who wanted them to be together in life. According to reports that came out that day, both were deeply in love.
But fate did not bring them together. It was also reported at the time that Bachchan married Jaya considering her family glory and superstar status. Rekha has said in many interviews that she is in love with Bachchan. This has fueled the gossip. Bachchan-Rekha gossip continued even after the marriage. But this did not affect the marital relationship with Jaya Bachchan.
Jaya once invited Rekha to her house and told me that she would never leave my husband. Rekha understood what that meant. Bachchan has had affairs before and after Rekha. Tragedy also followed the actress into her married life. Rekha married in 1990. Rekha is married to Delhi businessman Mukesh Agarvash. But this relationship did not last long.
Mukesh Agarwal hanged himself by Rekha’s shawl. Rekha is again isolated in life. That day, there was widespread abuse against the actress saying that the cause of her death was Rekha. Previously, filmmaker Yash Chopra had also spoken about the Rekha-Bachchan romance. Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan were the main characters in his film Silsila. Jaya played the role of Bachchan’s character’s wife and Rekha played the role of his girlfriend.
In a 2010 interview with the BBC, Rekha and Bachchan were the subject of the film. She was scared while making Silsila. Because real life was happening there. Jaya was his wife and Rekha was his girlfriend. The same is true in real life. Yash Chopra later said that anything could have happened because they were working together. Yash Chopra’s words impacted even the interviewee that day.
The interviewer later pointed out that this was just a rumor, but no one confirmed it. The interview was broadcast on BBC Asian Network. This observation was widely discussed at the time. But Silsila flopped at the box office. But the performance of the three in the film drew attention.
Silsila’s scenes are still circulating on social media. Rekha is not active in today’s movies. Jaya Bachchan left the cinema and went into politics. Meanwhile, the actress has acted in the upcoming movie Rocky Aur Rami Ki Prem Kahani. Bachchan is active in the film industry.
