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.
This romantic couple used to date in a bungalow that belonged to Rekha's friend.
Big B got angry on a co-actor who was misbehaving with Rekha during the shoot of "Ganga Ki Saugandh."
Gossip mongers and media persons kept highlighting the stories of Rekha-Amitabh's affair for a long time.
One news channel even broadcasted that these love birds have got married secretly.
Jaya casually told Rekha that she would never leave her husband at any cost.
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." Yash Chopra said in an interview to 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 passionate 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.
