Today, Bollywood’s everlasting diva Rekha is another year older. She has left us in awe with her dazzling performances throughout the decades, and her presence still delights us now. Her supposed affair with Amitabh Bachchan has always captured the public’s attention, despite the fact that we have witnessed her on-screen prowess. How did the narrative rumored rumored passionate love reach the pages of cinema magazines? In Yasser Usman’s book Rekha – The Untold Story, there is a reference to an incident that supposedly occurred in 1977.
It appears that Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan were filming Ganga Ki Saugandh together (1978). The shoot was taking place close to Jaipur. A massive crowd had amassed to view the stars. It appears that one man kept making sexual comments to the actress. The unit warned him to behave, but he disregarded the advice. It appears that Amitabh Bachchan lost his temper and engaged the man in a fistfight. While none of them ever discussed the incident, the rumor supposedly spread and everyone in Bollywood was debating it.
People were astonished since Amitabh Bachchan has always emanated the aura of a very refined performer. Sultan Ahmad directed the motion picture Ganga Ki Saugandh. Amitabh Bachchan portrayed a young man who becomes a bandit in the film. These types of action dramas were popular at the time.
In the early 1980s, when Rekha attended the wedding of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh wearing a big amount of sindoor on her forehead, she once again attracted the attention of tabloids. She was radiant in a white saree, but it was the vermillion that drew the eye. Everyone questioned whether or not she had married. According to witnesses, Amitabh Bachchan and she had a brief official conversation at the wedding. This is one B-Town saga that film enthusiasts of all ages cannot get enough of!
