When Simi Garewal had asked Rekha if she was ever in love with Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha had admitted, “Absolutely. Duh, that’s a dumb question. I have yet to come across a single man, woman, child who can help but fall completely, passionately, insanely, desperately, hopelessly in love with him.
So why should I be singled out? What do I deny? I’m not in love with him? Of course I am. Duniya bhar ka love aap le lijiyega and add some more – I feel that for that person. Bottomline.”
At the same time, Rekha also denied being in a relationship with the veteran actor. She had said, “There was never a personal connection with him, that’s the truth. Never ever. There was no truth to the controversies and speculation.” Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha shared the frame in Yash Chopra’s ambitious movie ‘Silsila’, which released in 1981. Post this, the duo never shared the frame.
Recently, Rekha hit headlines after Sameera Reddy posted memorable pictures with the veteran actress on Instagram. Sameera had penned, “When my kids met RekhaJi. This memory just popped up on my phone and I remember so clearly Nyra was so cranky that day, I was very hassled and it’s incredible how RekhaJi took the time to settle her😊and of course Hans got sweet hugs too ! A memory for us to show them when they grow up 🌟 #legend #throwback #messymama #motherhood #moments.”
