Rekha had affairs with many men from Vinod Mehra to Danny Denzogpa. She was a love child herself and had deprived childhood. Hence grew up to be odd. She is just obsessed with Amitabh. Nothing else. Will someone ask her why her husband Mukesh committed suicide? What relationship she has with secretary Farzana? Amitabh should have kept away from her. She just kept using his name for publicity!

    AmitJi made a mistake and had an affair....however, he ultimately did the right thing and stayed with his family. Where he belongs.

    Rekha seems very obsessed with him even to this day. While I love her as an actress I would have to question her mental state of mind. Does the movie Fatal Attraction ring any bells? Rekha loves him in a creepy, unhinged sort of way. *shudders* I would be uncomfortable around her is I were him too!

    Distructive Rekha chased and tempted AmitJi no doubt but he is still with Jaya so how come? Jaya is the love of Amitji's life obviously but Rekha mistakenly thinks she is only love of his life and tells these madeup stories. The proof is in the pudding as the saying goes. Facts are facts. She should have faced them when she knew he had a family.

    Rekha must feel like a Total Idiot reading this. Obessed and Arrogant - She thought she was the Love of AB's life. It's all in her head even 30yrs later surely she must see her made up fantasy world. She chased him and thought she could take AB from Jaya and his kids. Maybe the fling too was mostly in her imagination. What wasted energy, time and trying to torture his family.

    Deluded Rekha had too many affairs to count with other men. She has a fantasy that AB only loves her and somehow she is the only Special one in his life ever. Dream in Honey. A man like AB does not stay with a wife - Jaya unless he loves her.

    Amitabh had more responsibilities towards his family and not towards Rekha. If Rekha was so sincere then why her name was linked with Shekhar Suman and others after her affair with Amitabh. Rekha will always be appreciated for her talent, and even personally she is one the my favourites as was one of the best actresses we ever had a great lady but blaming Amitabh is not justice. He could be blamed for an affair but Rekha also involved for that knowing everything about Amtabh's life.

    what a shameful career reputation of a Legend who deserves much respect and honor for his dedication and service to his career. Unfortunately his career lifetime is ruined with such petty carnal stories. Feel sad for him. Wonder how his grands kids feels reading on their superstar Nanaji. AB could have been so much more deservedly so for his lifetime achievements in his career but the likes of Rekha and Parveen made sure he forever be tarnished and tainted. Today AB should have been the leading shining Legend of the industry with his head held high with pride taking on an entire new generation and the nation as leader. Instead he is just another superstar. He has been robbed of his greatness for abusing his Superstar status at work and being dishonest with his work. Karma is a B.

    Hey all heres some gossip : While making Silsila, Yash Chopra had apparently promised Rekha that he was planning to make a film with her in the title role of Chandni. Chandni was also Rekha's screen name in Silsila. Rekha kept reminding Yash Chopra of Chandni. But years later when Yash Chopra decided to make Chandni, he chose Sridevi as she was the superstar then. Rekha learned it through other sources and she was really hurt and blamed Yash Chopra for not keeping his promise.

    I dont know if you guys have seen Yash chopra's interviw on sonia deol's show on the BBC Asian Network. The BBC asian netwrok managed to a pull a coup of sorts when it aired an interview with legendry filmmaker Yash Chopra who confirmed one of the most infamous affairs in Bollywood.

    Rekha made headlines when she turned up for Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh's wedding wearing 'sindoor, mangalsutra and two rings on her fingers gifted by her Amit. She hogged all the limelight that night - even more than the newly weds did. That is so Rekha, always wanting attention. She is such an attention seeker man.

    Apparently once Jaya even invited Rekha home for dinner. Rekha said thar 'Jayaji called me for dinner one evening and though we spoke about everything but 'him', before I left that day, she made sure to tell me: 'I will never leave Amit whatever happens!' Sure enough, Jaya kept her word, eh?
    So, like,although Jaya refused to acknowledge the affair in public, she said that if Amitabh was really cheating on her, his conscience would eventually get the better of him and straighten him out. Hmmm fine, but I still couldnt forgive him or live with such a man who cheated on me while we were married and had kids. Or maybe Jaya did that for the kids sake?

    actors are just human beings. affairs, betrayal and what else. can't blame them cos it's just people that make them GOD and stuff. Anyway who cares these stuff.....they are people who does everything in front of camera for the whole world to see...so can assume the rest. Anyways they are great in entertaining and that's about it. The respect for these people comes in the picture only if they contribute to the society with the money they earns.

    Wow, Rekha sounds like a love-sick fool. Her paragraph on Women's Rights has totally made me lose respect for her. I wonder what makes a woman say self-hating things like that, she clearly had issues. She seems to worship a man who used her and abandoned her. And to this day she is devoted to him. yikes .
    Also explains why Jaya Bachchan looks so deeply unhappy , what all she went through! And for what? I wonder if these women feel like their sacrifices were worth it.

It's no fair to dig up there past and now hold it against them. Amithabh Bachchan and Rekha has moved on from this affair, Amithabh Bachchan is living a happy family life with his wife, kids, grandkids, and daughter-in-law. Rekha is also happy with her life now.

    When it comes to Amitabh Bachchan, I guess Rekha is a kinda crazy, so I don't doubt even for a second that her vanity case said 'Rekha Bachchan'. Also, I believe that they spent a lot of time together on the sets of their movies. I read somewhere that when the director was casting the actress opposite Amitabh, Jaya didn't want Rekha, and said that she would be really upset if he did. On the other hand, Rekha was putting pressure on the director to cast her opposite Amitabh or she would not let any other actress get the part. And apparently Rekha behaved like a complete wife towards Amitabh on the sets.

    I've heard of the Parveen Babi affair before and you know what, I kind of do believe that it happened and then him leaving her probably did push further into mental problems but I do not think it was all Amitabh's fault.

    And thank you, there are a few people who always put in their two cents which is nice. And those are the people who make it all worth while! Thank you guys for liking these vintage posts :)
    Also, to anon who said I forgot to do a post on Hema Malini, I apologise! It will be up this weekend :)

    Rekha is nuts! Amitabh may or may not have had an affair with Rekha, but today he is a family man and Jaya is very much the mistress of his life and home. Rekha on the other hand walks around with tons of make up hiding her wrinkles and puffed up eyes and has that odd ball Farzana as her live in partner. She has a broken marriage with her poor husband of few weeks committing suicide. She talked herself out of that tight corner, how she did that, I'd never know. Then there is a talk of her secret marriage to Vinod Chopra and multitude of affairs with likes of Raj Babbar, Sunjay dutt, Akshay Kumar and I can't even remember the rest.

    Bachchan family is looked upon as the first family of the Bombay film industry.

    So go work out your maths!

    I'm confused with this whole mess. On her interview with Simi Garewal Rrendezvous, she said there is NO affair. Anyway, it seems now he hates her & avoid her like she's a psycho ex-girlfriend. She seems to ignore his clue of "get loss, I don't want to have anything to do with you". She acts like she always wants to be close to him, by going up to talk and hug Jaya, Abhi, & Ash when he is there with them. She should just stay at her space & ignore them. I don't see them going to her to say hi. If they did have an affair, to him it's an affair NOT to remember. Rekha should read the book and see the movie "He's not that into you". If he was, he would have leave his wife and married her.

How can she make such an outrageous confession? First of all, seducing a married man is the biggest mistake and then confessing it in public, i mean where is the decency? She is confessing to it as if she has got a Nobel prize. Anyways if she had got married, what she had taught her children and grandchildren?

    The way Amitabh treats Rekha nowadays is weird! on one hand he is denying any affair with her, then why be so indifferent to her presence? He is not even cordial to her at events. Isnt that behaviour odd? If he was her costar in so many blockbuster films and says he didnt have a romantic liking for her, why cant he be nice to his costar and greet her at functions? Instead, he avoids her like the plague and acts as if she doesnt exist. That makes one more curious to know the real story! such a behaviour is justified only when a person has special interests in the other person and is trying hard to avoid media attention at any cost. Poor Rekha; must be feeling exploited. Should hang the married men who do such things!

    I have read this interview before and others by her in the same era... she apparently befriended both Jaya and Amitabh and took a lot of advice from both of them, and saw Jaya as a sister and learned acting from Amitabh, so she said. They were somewhat of mentors or role models for her but at some point she must have fallen in love with Amitabh (like 1/2 the country at that time) but it was one sided. Still she persisted and went to the media with her feelings, bashing Jaya and praising Amitabh. I seriously think she was trying to break them up and position herself as his woman. Well that didn't work out for her, but I sometimes wonder that if she WAS dating him for 10 years as claimed and she WAS so desperate for public validation as we see in this interview, wouldn't she have tried to produce a love child to support her public outcry that he was her decade long lover?

    In any case, she certainly has mellowed out, we don't see her screaming from the rooftops about her long term lover Farzana, she prefers to keep that relationship more low key for reasons that only she knows! But one thing's for sure, she sure gave entertaing interviews and they just don't make them like Rekha anymore!

    He can deny as much as they like now, but a lot of people in India know that they were going out together & very much an item at one time.

    Not wanting to name names, but an acquaintance, who worked with Yash Chopra amongst others, told us that while traveling he noticed Rekha used to have 'Rekha Bachchan' as the name on her vanity case. Also, they would spend an awful long time together in their dressing rooms ! This was even on the sets of Silsila with poor Jaya waiting for them on the sets. In fact Yash Chopra deliberately made that film to cash in on their affair.

    Another thing was around the same time he was carrying on with poor Praveen Babi. I was at his concert in London in 1985 where she also appeared. They danced & mimed to the song 'Angregi Mein Kahte Hein I Love You' from 'Khuddar'. Soon after she disappeared suffering from a nervous breakdown. When she did eventually return, in all her interviews she would constantly blame him for causing it. However, he is very well connected & she was just made out to be mentally imbalanced - how sad ...

    btw, panipuri love your posts. I seemost PinkVila-ites appreciate your posts which is a good thing considering the amount of time you spend on collecting these vintage articles, covers, magazine scans etc.

    Well..there is no space for pity for her!people are so mad and outraged with the whole PC and SRK alleged affair and everyone is hating on her and him (but her more) noone (including me) feels pity for PC then why Rekha. She is no different. Having an affair with a married man breaks his whole family apart, not just the wife. It is hard on more than one person and why would anyone do that to others just for his pleasure!
    My belief is, wait before making a quick decision to get married so that you dont end up unhappy! wait for the right person to come along and think hard before you make the wrong choice and end up spending your entire life thinking....what if! I give Salman credit for that. Im glad Amitabh didnt leave Jaya for Rekha, not because I like Jaya (I dont even like her) but because of how good of a person Abhishek is. You cans see he has been brought up well and maybe that wouldn't be the case if Amitabh would have left. Same for SRK! I pity Saif's and Aamir's kids!

    Even in simi's endezvous, she asked Rekha - 'If you could be any perosn for one day, who would you be?' And she said 'Amit Ji'. She then went on to explain what a great person amitabh is and how she would love to be him for a day and how she admires him so much etc.

    IT is both rekha's and amitabh's fault. He went into it knowing he had a wife and kids and she went into it knowing she was involved with a married man with kids. So they are both at fault. The only one who suffered the most is Jaya. Imagine what must be going through her mind when she knew her husband, the father of her kids, the man she married at the peak of her career was having an affair with another woman. That's why even Jaya and AMitabh have always been so weird and awkward in public.
    In the KWK episode where jaya and hema came in with their daughters, (I think around 2007) they were talking about abhishek who was about to get married aishwarya. And then Jaya said something like Aishwarya is a smart woman, she is self made and independant and she knows it. Abhishek should know that and not do something which he shouldnt do - because Aishwarya Rai is not me. She will not just sit at home and take it all. (She obviously was referring to the affai. And she meant that aishwarya is not her, and if abhshek has ana ffair or something, she wont shut up, sit at home and take it, like Jaya did).

    I AGREE WITH YOU .......
    BUT SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE THAT JAYA DOSE NOT LIKE AISH OR CLOSE TO HER
    B/C AISH SIMILAR THERETO REKHA IN SOME WAY ......

    she is immature..also a lot of what a person is because of kind of childhood they experience. she had a terrible childhood. with her mom pushing her into bad bw world at tender age of 13-14. even a grown women cannot handle this perverts who rule the industry imagine a child of her age. additionally her own mom was no goddess of morality so she has no positive role models to follow.
    if people with stable family and parents like PC can try breaking a marriage ..imagine rekha. it does not excuse what she did but thats probably why she behaved the way she did.

    @Despite the fact that I feel for rekha, I think, at the point of this interview, she should've realized that she needs to leave mr baachan.They say " mard ka kuch nahee jaata".It was an ideal situation for him, having a wife and children on one side and the stability that it brings and a lover on the other side to fulfill his carnal desires.
    Its the woman, who has to realize her place in such a man's life, and its not more than a toy.A woman has to decide for herself in such a situation, if she always wants to remain sad , forlorn and childless or she finds herself a man, who is single and is willing to give her, what she deserves.None is to be blamed her, but rekha herself for the life that she has chosen .She could've been living a fulfilling life, had she made a decision early on and wouldn't have hung on to the so called idea of being in love.If a man loves you enough, he won't hide behind others to have an affair with you.

    i actually prefer rekha over jaya..a great actress! a very good human being! i feel sad for her for not being able to find love!!

    a very good human being........please tell me from any angel ????
    she even tried to seduce e AKSY KUMAR......
    at least JAYA did really well through Upbringing her kids(No turning them against their father)
    they even treated REKHA with respect ........(i saw apic of ABHI greeting REKHA).......
    the problem if the wife not popular.beautiful ......people will blame her for her husband infidelity...

    Rekha flaunted their relationship because first of all, why shouldn't she ? She was a single gal and had nothing to lose. Amitabh hesitated because he had much to lose, his kids and wife.
    Bollywood was/is filled with men with lose morals and beautiful women who fell for them. Raj Kapoor, Amitabh, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan, Satrughan Sinha, Kamal Hassan, Akshyay Kumar, the list goes on and on. All these men chased beautiful, successful actresses from the industry and most of the time, did not treat them very well. But I fail to understand these women, who let themselves be victim of these men and their greed.

    In most cases, I blame lack of education. Toiling in college and getting a degree might not give you millions like movies, but it does instill in you some sense of pride in yourself and a broader view of the world beyond your cocoon. Rekha, Hema, Sridevi, Reena Roy, Sarika etc were in the industry since they were children. Most of these ladies were constantly taken advantage of monetarily by their parents/ guardian etc. Later on they dished out what they received early in their lives.

    However, one exception to this was Zeenat Aman. She was well educated, had seen the world, and had a relatively stable life with her mom and stepdad. I do not understand the source of her insecurity, why did she have to date/marry complete and total jerks? I sense daddy issues. Her dad was not around when she was growing up, and then died when she was young. Thats why, I guess, she went after muslim men, Sanjay Khan, Imran Khan, Mazhar Khan etc.

    What a sad story. I can totally imagine her wanting to have full life and have tons of kids. Coming from a broken home she probably was totally starry eyed about having a proper family to call her own and then she ended up with none of that.

    Life is what happens when we are busy making other plans.

    Rekha was a man eater. Amitabh is no saint though. For so many years, he has created this image of himself as if he's so 'doodh ka dhula'. In reality he was a manipulator. He had an affair with Rekha when he had 2 little kids. People all over India amdire him so much, but he really doesn't deserve it. No wonder his wife and kids have a bitter relationship with him which can totally be seen in the media or in talk shows etc.

    I could even read this without thinking, WTF??? This woman is so lost in her own bizarre thoughts and fantasies. She is all over the place and I do not see the appeal of this woman at all! Both she and
    Amitabh are at fault equally. She seems so full of herself and materialistic...I am just disgusted!!!

    Well it goes both ways right? Amitabh shouldn't have been having an affair with Rekha being married to Jaya with 2 children.

    Agree with you Green! It's sad that her dream of having a lot of children got unfulfilled.

    I really admire Rekha as an artist. But his whole AB affair always left me confused. I mean, it does seem like they had an affair, but where AB is persistent on denying it, Rekha flaunts it with a smile. If it is true that they had an affair, then I admire Rekha even more for being honest about it; she still shouldn't have been involved with a married man of course. But in that case, my respect for AB is diminished, because he can't be man enough to admit to his mistakes. Rekha is the other woman, while he still has his image intact. Men always get away with these things!! Either ways, I feel bad for Jaya. She's had to put up with these rumors for decades.

    Well..there is no space for pity for her!people are so mad and outraged with the whole PC and SRK alleged affair and everyone is hating on her and him (but her more) noone (including me) feels pity for PC then why Rekha. She is no different. Having an affair with a married man breaks his whole family apart, not just the wife. It is hard on more than one person and why would anyone do that to others just for his pleasure!
    My belief is, wait before making a quick decision to get married so that you dont end up unhappy! wait for the right person to come along and think hard before you make the wrong choice and end up spending your entire life thinking....what if! I give Salman credit for that. Im glad Amitabh didnt leave Jaya for Rekha, not because I like Jaya (I dont even like her) but because of how good of a person Abhishek is. You cans see he has been brought up well and maybe that wouldn't be the case if Amitabh would have left. Same for SRK! I pity Saif's and Aamir's kids!

    I don't know what to say about this lady. I hate her for getting involved with a much married man but at the same time i pity her for not being able to fulfill her dreams of having children. Although i am a big fan of AB Sr., i feel he should be equally blamed for what he did to his wife and children. Jaya didn't deserve this. I guess she became a bitter person because of what she has gone through in her life.
