Though everyone in B-town is aware of the secret affair of these legends, still no one knows the complete truth behind their relationship and separation. Both of them never like to discuss their unfortunate love story in public. They are seen maintaining distance from each other at the events as well.
Have a look at the story to know the truth behind their mysterious love story.
Many reports claim that the couple used to spend their quality time with each other in a bungalow that belonged to one of Rekha's friends.
Their love story took a U-turn after some time. It is said that Big B got angry on a co-actor who was misbehaving with Rekha during the shoot of 'Ganga Ki Saugandh'.
What happened next is well-known to everyone out there...
Gossip mongers and media persons kept highlighting the stories of Rekha-Amitabh's affair for a long time.
Rekha was seen wearing Sindoor and Mangal Sutra at the wedding of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. One news channel even broadcasted that these lovebirds have got married secretly. And you'll be surprised to know that till this time Amitabh and Jaya were already married.
After this incident...
Jaya casually told Rekha that she would never leave her husband at any cost.
And one day, Rekha openly did this...
She exclaimed, "Why should he have not done it? He did it to protect his image, his family, and his children. Why should the public know of my love for him or his love for me? I love him and he loves me, that's it! If he'd reacted that way towards me in private, I would have been very disappointed. Mr Bachchan is still old-fashioned. He doesn't want to hurt anybody so why to hurt his wife?"
Amitabh and Rekha both were last seen together in the movie 'Silsila'. Once Late Yash Chopra said in an interview with BBC, "I was always on tenterhooks and scared (during Silsila) because it was real life coming into reel life. Jaya is his wife, and Rekha is his girlfriend, and the same story is going on (in real life). Anything could have happened because they are working together."
Instead of settling down with the tag of 'other woman' in Big B's life, Rekha preferred to end their love story.
Where many people believe that it is Rekha's style statement, others are suspicious if she wears sindoor for Big B. Though Amitabh and Rekha acted in Shamitabh movie, they didn't share any screen space together.
We hope a happy and prosperous life to both the legendary actors of the industry and appreciate their efforts and strengths that they put to show their best to us.
