Not every story is meant to be completed, after all love happens at the wrong place and at the wrong time to some of us. Bollywood is no exception to this. One such story is that of Amitabh and Rekha. One of the most talked about couple. But how did it all start? It started on the sets of the film ‘Do Anjaane’. It not only led to sparks flying but also, transformed Rekha’s south Indian girl image into a bollywood glamour girl. Soon, these sparks turned into fire in no time. With their back to back movies like, Khoon Pasina, Ganga ki Saugandh, Suhag, Muqqadar ka Sikander, Ram Balaram, Mr. Natwarlal and Silsila. It was also rumored, that the couple would meet in a bungalow belonging to Rekha’s friend. However where there is fire, there is always commotion. So did it happen here, when Amitabh Bachchan lost his temper on one of his fellow co-actor, who troubled Rekha, during the shoot of Ganga ki Saugandh. This well grabbed attention from a lot of shutterbugs. Infact, it was even believed that Rekha got married to Amitabh, especially when she was seen with sindoor and mangalsutra at Rishi kapoors and Neetu Singhs wedding. According to a recent revelation made by, the famous veteran villain, Ranjeet, Rekha even rejected the movie Kaarnama because its shooting schedule was in the evening, which she couldn’t make to, because well, she had to spend time Big B. Thereby, she refused to do the movie and even gave back the signing amount. The couple however broke up, after the shoot of Silsila, because it was apparently real life story into reel life. One shouldn’t forget that during this alleged affair, Big b was already married to another legendary actress Jaya Bachchan and apparently this movie starred both Jaya bachhan and Rekha along with Amitabh. A reel life love triangle! The person having to face the most difficult of times was yash chopra ofcourse, in an interview to BBC, Yash Chopra had confessed on how difficult was it to handle the shooting, he believed anything could have happened because, Jaya was Big B’s wife and Rekha his girlfriend. ‘It was real life coming into reel life’ proclaims the late director. It was however their last movie together, what happened then that the couple broke up, still remains a mystery. Since, then the two are always seen avoiding each other at every occasion till date. Lets just hope after that ‘Silsila’ the two mend their differences.
