Shah Rukh Khan
No Record Found.
She has been one of the most popular actresses Hindi cinema has ever seen. But over the last couple of years, she has grown into much more than an actress. Rekha today is synonymous with the term ‘mystery woman’. While she does make appearances for her friends, the age-defying veteran actress has stayed away from the media for years.
In the meantime rumour after rumour about her relationships of the past sprung up from all quarters; these apart from the alleged romantic relationship that she had with Amitabh Bachchan in the ‘80s. We list some of those gossips that have done rounds, right since the beginning of her career in Bollywood.
Nope this is not the Sajid Khan who made Humshakals. This one is Mehboob Khan’s adopted son, one who was famous as a child star in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. Sajid was a pretty well-known actor and people expected him to strike big as a lead actor too. He is said to have been one of Rekha’s earliest love interests. However due to her work commitments, they could not keep the relationship going. Rekha obviously never commented on it.
Navin Nischol was the hero of Rekha’s first Bollywood release. They worked together in Sawan Bhadon, which was a major hit. Fresh out of FTII with a gold medal, the film was Navin’s debut as well. They two apparently got along really well and soon Rekha moved on from Sajid Khan. Rekha was said to have been bowled over by Navin’s calm demeanor and stylish nature. Navin, however, was a married man and hence the romance died soon after.
The link-up with Yash Kohli had moved well past the romance stage. There were serious gossips doing rounds that the actress had in fact tied the knot with Yash, who was better known as Dev Anand’s nephew. This was allegedly the actress’s first marriage. They two is said to have met at some social gathering and soon started dating. Their love story was said to have brought in the much needed to stability to Rekha’s life after a series of failed relationships. However, this too could not sustain and they split.
The second time marriage rumours surfaced about Rekha was when she started seeing Vinod Mehra. Rekha was one of Vinod Mehra’s most consistent heroines. Love bloomed and they apparently got married in Kolkata (then Calcutta). However, when they reached Mumbai and Vinod got her to his house his mother was extremely rude to her. In a recent biography by Yasser Usman, the writer reveals that Vinod Mehra’s mother apparently was so miffed that she refused to let the actress enter their home and even got violent.
Years later when Rekha was quizzed by Simi Garewal about Vinod Khanna, the actress said he was a well-wisher and that’s about it.
Among the most unbelievable rumours around Rekha was about her relationship Sanjay Dutt. The two are said to have met while working on the film Zameen Aasman, in which Rekha played Sanjay’s mother and sparks flew. Soon there were even murmurs that the two had secretly tied the knot to Sunil Dutt’s dismay. Of course, both actors completely denied it.
Interestingly this happened while Rekha’s romance with Amitabh Bachchan was still on the high and some people observe that they may have been an attempt by Rekha to make Bachchan jealous.
This is the most recent and shocking gossip around Rekha and one of her co-actors. They two acted together in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1997) and were required to film some rather steamy scenes. The youthful Akshay Kumar, who was already dating Raveena Tandon then, is said to have taken the 42-year old Rekha’s fantasy.
In an interview later Raveena had stated that Akshay was never after Rekha. “I don't think Akshay ever had anything to do with Rekha. As a matter of fact, he would run away from her. Akshay tolerated Rekha because of the film. At one point she wanted to get lunch dabbas for him from home. That's when I put my foot down. I felt it was taking things a bit too far. She's a wonderful person, but she should learn where to draw the line,” she was quoted is the interview.
Jeetendra and Rekha worked together in over 25 films and somewhere in between the two are said to have gotten romantically involved. This despite Jeetendra being married to Shobha Kapoor. The romance soon fizzled out. However, they are said to have continued their friendship. Years later the two were seen together in Mother, where Rekha played an older lady who had an affair three men in her youth and had a child from one of them.
These apart, Rekha is said to have dated actors like Kiran Kumar, Biswajeet, Kiran Kumar and a few more. All of these of course have been hush-hush gossip rather than confirmed by the actress. The only confirmed marriage the actress ever had was with businessman Mukesh Agarwal, who had committed suicide.
