This is probably the most electric and passionate but an untold love story that Bollywood has ever witnessed. Two of the most gorgeous people of Bollywood who were at the highest peek of their career’s and were in love with each other. Everything was perfect, except that the boy in the love story was married, with two kids, who happened to be the great legend Amitabh Bachan and the beautiful women happened to be none other than Rekha. This is the great Indian love story of Amitabh and Rekha.
The two actors first met on the sets of “Do ajnabe” and ironically that’s the equation with them now. None of them ever spoke about their affair. In fact Rekha has mentioned in many interviews that she loves Amitabh Bachan just like how the country does. Rumor mills had it that Amitabh Bachan once lost his temper when a co-star misbehaved with Rekha. That was the first time that their relationship was ever evident.
Later, when Yash Chopra directly the hugely popular and controversial film “Silsila” where Amitabh and Jaya played the role of a married couple and Rekha played the role of “the other women” the paparazzi got more inquisitive. Many people considered this to be their personal equation as their affair was very well known and spoken about. Strong rumors about Amitabh Bachan and Rekha being married also surfaced. It was said that Rekha wanted to get married to Amitabh and not be “the other women”, which clearly wasn’t possible given his circumstances at that point of time. That was one reason the duo separated and never again acted together. They have always maintained silence about this issue which set more tongues wagging.
Well what was between them was a very complicated story and a good piece of gossip for the gossip mongers. The couple looked great together on screen and their chemistry was crackling. Whether their reel relationship converted into a real life relationship has always been a mystery.
