Blast from the past: Rekha with husband Mukesh Aggarwal 0

In 1990, Rekha married Delhi-based industrialist Mukesh Aggarwal. A year later—while she was in the US—he committed suicide, after several previous attempts, leaving a note, "Don't blame anyone"..

They look so happy together. Wonder what tragedy might have befallen this cute couple.. So sad..

    Lol don't be ignorant Voiceswriter. Her father is the legendary Gemini Ganesan. A caring father he may not be,but he is definitely legendary. Also she is probably in this industry because of his contacts. She might be his illegitimate daughter but she probably came to know filmi ppl because of him.

    He didn't do squat for her. She only revealed that he was her father in name and that was that. She was on her own. After she became famous, he wanted to reconcile. Classy. Voiceswriter is not ignorant. Yes, he is legendary but Rekha made herself a much bigger name. What kind of father let's his family starve and let his teenage daughter fend for them in the cut throat film business all by herself. If she had connections she would not have suffered so much. She admits that many men tried to take advantage of her and many succeeded. Easy when you're a child and all alone. I've also read her mother was gravely ill at the time. What kind of man is this?
    .......
    I am not defending him at all. He seems like quite a horrible man looking at all his wives and illegitimate children. I just thought people knew that she was Ganesan's daughter and hence the chance in the industry. I was wrong though.

    For the record, I'm not Indian but I do know Rekha. I had never heard of Gemini or Shivaji Ganeshan until today on pinkvilla.

    Rekha's father, as others have mentioned, is Gemini Ganesan, not Shivaji Ganesan. Shivaji Ganesan not only had much greater stature than Gemini Ganesan, but was also a strictly moral man. All your other statements (about having multiple "second" wives over the course of time, one of them being Savitri) are correct. I think you just got mixed up with the names.

    Rekha certainly didn't get into films due to her father's (Gemini Ganesan's) connections. As others have mentioned, he didn't even acknowledge her till she became a success. She was known only as Pushpavalli's daughter (her mother) at the beginning of her career. Pushpavalli was a reasonably successful second heroine whose career had faded out by the time Rekha started in films. Actually, even Gemini Ganesan's career wasn't any great shakes when Rekha started.

    Her father did not acknowledge her as his daughter? Well, flip him then. She is legendary and he is not. Without a surname, the world still knows Rekha!

    He dosn't seem like Rekha's type,hence brief marriage. He must have been besotted with her,doubt feeling was mutual...She thought go for the safe option,nice guy good job,adores her. Later found out wasn't enough. Amitabh on the other hand tall,dark handsome,articulate ambitious. Just so happens it wasn't meant to be. Think she wasted her life chasing someone who could never be hers. It's pretty much a common thing amongst actresses,Madhubala,Parveen Babi. Such pretty headstrong women,however something missing.

    Voiceswriter, her father was the legendary Shivaji Ganeshan of Tamil cinema! Even to this day he is considered as a great actor by everyone. Though that doesn't make him a great person! He was rumored to have children with eight woman who are his illegal wives, one of whom is also the legendary Telugu actress savitri. Rekhas mother was one of his conquests! But just like rekhas mother he never acknowledged any of his eight wives officially.

    in second pic she looks like ashwarya rai. gives me proof to amitab n ashwaryas affair - he wanted her coz she reminded of exflame

    ^^^^^^^^^
    I always thot amitabhi and aishwerya has a creepy relationship too for a FIL/DIL, they certainly acted as if they were on more intimate terms with that. up til now i am not really sure if she was artificially impregnant with amitabh's sperm, since she and abhishek could not conceive for so long, and it least it is still bachan genes that way.

    Aishwarya and Rekha have a lot of similarities- apart from the fact that both are south indian and bear some physical resemblances, they are both manglik, manipulative and ruthlessly ambitious. Both also have AB is common.

    IDIOTIC CREATURES...Amitabh and Reka did one big mistake by having extra-marital affair. Good that he ended it. Why is it a crime if a person rectifies one's mistake.

    Rekha deserved some happiness , its pretty sad.
    On a side note a perfect movie could be made on her life , A diva, an affair and a suicide !!

    You left out born out of marriage, spurned by her father, and pushed into Hindi Cinema at age 13 on her own to support her family. I don't even want to think about what she probably went through in the early stages with all those creepy movie directors and simultaneously being picked on for her very South Indian looks at the time.

    This seems to be the plight of a lot of Very beautiful women. They have all this beauty but for some reason are very unlucky in love. I agree they do look alike. I hope she finds happiness with someone decent unlike Bachchan.

    Through it all though she carries herself with grace.

    Awww, he still care for Rekha and said "Don't blame anyone". Because he knew people will blame Rekha for his death. She must be very good to him too. People should stop judging Rekha. Nobody knows her. Rekha is a lovely person..that's why by the grace of God she is still living a happy and healthy life today. May god always bless her.

    Mukesh had huge depression issues. Rekha married him with the best of intentions.She knew that she loved only this particular actor & had a relationship with him. But his image would not allow him to legalise the relationship.Worse still,he dumped her for another actress who is no more today.Rekha had her own demons to battle & sadly the marriage was not working for her. Mukesh was shocked when she asked for a divorce .He killed himself using her dupatta.
