He said, “The quotes alleging a ‘live-in relationship’ ascribed to my book ‘RekhaThe Untold Story’ are a complete fabrication, falsification and misrepresentation evidently intended to create sensationalism.
I vehemently assert that the quotes mentioned in the media articles are entirely absent from my book. Furthermore, _*throughout the entire manuscript, the phrases ‘live-in relationship’ or ‘hermetic existence’ or ‘the biography claiming the relationship is sexual’ have never been used. *_These incorrect quotes are a result of poor clickbait journalism and keep on resurfacing every few years. If these quotes attributed to me or my book ‘Rekha The Untold Story’ are not immediately rectified, we will not hesitate to pursue legal action against the publications responsible.”
Earlier, reports quoted the book saying, “Farzana is a perfect partner for Rekha. She is her consultant, her friend, and her supporter, and Rekha simply can’t live without her. In fact, only Rekha’s trusted secretary Farzana — who some have claimed is her lover — is permitted inside her bedroom; not even domestic help are allowed entry.”
Reportedly, the book also claimed that Farzana was the reason behind the suicide of Rekha’s late husband, Mukesh Aggarwal, who was a Delhi-based businessman. In 1990, he took his own life when Rekha was away in London. He left a suicide note saying that he did not blame anyone and certainly not Rekha for his tragic end.
