In a recent event, veteran Bollywood actress Rekha, known for her timeless beauty and charisma, left a fan with an unforgettable memory – a playful slap on the cheek. Despite being nearly 70 years old, Rekha continues to command a massive fan following from all corners of the country, with her evergreen charm.
Even though she has been relatively absent from the cinema screen in recent years, Rekha’s fans remain devoted to her, eagerly seeking a glimpse of their beloved star at any given opportunity. Photographers, too, are always keen to capture her iconic presence whenever she graces an event with her attendance.
This incident unfolded at a recent gathering where Rekha made an appearance in one of her classic outfits, complete with her signature red lipstick and sindoor (vermilion). As usual, photographers swarmed around her, aiming to capture her timeless beauty. Amongst the eager crowd was a fervent fan who approached the actress with a special request – a photograph together.
As Rekha graciously obliged and came closer to fulfill the fan’s request, she surprised him with a light-hearted and playful slap on the cheek. The incident was caught on camera and quickly made its way onto various social media platforms.
It’s important to note that Rekha’s gesture appeared to be in jest rather than anger, as the video clearly depicts a lighthearted moment. Social media users reacted with humor, joking that the fan might not wash his cheek for seven days to preserve the memory of the iconic actress’s touch.
This incident comes after a few months of controversy surrounding Rekha’s relationship with her personal assistant, Farzana. Rumors have circulated that the actress has been in a long-term “relationship” with Farzana, even living together. Rekha’s past romantic involvement with Amitabh Bachchan during the peak of her career also stirred considerable controversy. However, Rekha did marry businessman Mukesh Agarwal in 1990, briefly dispelling such speculations. Unfortunately, the marriage ended tragically with Mukesh’s suicide just seven months later. Since then, Rekha has remained single, with Farzana serving as her personal assistant. The nature of their close bond has raised questions and speculation, but Rekha has chosen to keep her personal life largely private, refraining from public comment on the matter.
