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.
Ab never loved u Rekha. He only loved Jaya and that is why he is still with her40 yrs. Maybe u were a fling or u chased him and he resisted your temptaion.
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.
all of you are foolish and rude and nosey with these your comments, I think if you in and out of India will be shut up, then, all of these talks about these two legend of India and their private affairs will be end too.
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.
TO Sun, 2012-05-06 22:11 - WHAT RUBBISH???
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.
to all of u:
this is with reference to rekha as well as zeenats as well as shilpas episode....
1) every married man fall 4 some1 after getting mrrd ...evn if it means once....
2) any female can fall in love with a mrrd man coz mrrd man bcums more charming ...intelligent ... loving after marriage in terms of fooling women they bcum more smart.... n women are emotional fools ..ok...
3) smart women like shilpa n jaya alw wins
4) Mrrd man will never leave his wife ...he will go back to his wife n family once day
5) I still dont bliv sRK - PC story but if its true PC u still hv to know if SRK really loves her ... (i know its really bad breakg a family ) but think about selfish ppl like amitabh ...rajesh ...sanjay ....
they go on usign woemn n at the end of the day go back to thr wife...n do u think so they mst b loyal no way...i m sure amitabh quitely was in touch with rekha.. thats y she never sttled with anyone ...n even if its not rekha i am sure he must be flirting wid other woemn too....
compaprea to all this i wud prefer ppls like aditya chopra n raj ..... at lst they gv respect to a woemn ... aditya worked so many years to concince his parents... (ofcourse remrrg is still a taboo in our society )
i may upset few ppl but think wht is i am saying ?
Feel bad for her. May God give her peace and stability in her life.
She sounds like a creep.
she is so obsessed with him, that too in a really crazy stalker-ish way
Let's get one thing straight. PC never denied her affair with SRK. Even when asked by magazine interviewers AFTER DON 2 PROMOTION HAD ENDED, she still refused to deny the "rumors". There you have it.
Rekha is BiPolar. Obsessed with AB. She had so many men. Indian men don't want used goods as wife.
You know in simi garewal's rendesvouz simi's facial expressions are basically saying that Rekha you are so lying!
But she also contradicts herself in this show I mean she's like no but then she goes on and on about him and how phenomenal he is and how much she and the whole world loves him. So she's kinda like saying no but yes at the same time,not completely denying but not saying yes either- totally confusing Confused
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.
If media reports are to be believed Rekha has been married to
she even had a brief affair with Raj Babbar..
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?

Looks like Karan Johar or Gauri Khan has written this...................what a joke!!!
No you fool.....this is not Gauri Khan or Karan Johar.....You big Joke.
I have no respect to a woman who has devoted and ruined her life for a married man... what a waste of life, who is the lonely one here? It's obviously Rekha, Amitabh has his life with his wife, children and grandchildren and still a good career... I feel sorry for these women who ruin their life because of their selfishness, which is a blind love, with any cost ...
OKAY AMITHABH BACHCHAN HAD AN AFFAIR WITH REKHA- IT'S OVERHE WENT BACK TO HIS FAMILY- JAYA WON, HER HEART DID NOT BREAK FOR LONG, SHE GOT HER SATISFACTION BACK- REKHA LOSE. MR. BACHCHAN IS ALL FOR HIS FAMILY NOW.
YOU ALL SHOULD KNOW SRK WILL DEFINITELY DIVORCE GAURI. DO YOU THINK HE WILL EVER LEAVE PRIYANKA (A YOUNGER WOMAN) AND GO BACK TO GAURI AND HIS KIDS? NO WAY!. SRK SAID HE WILL NOT MISS ANYONE. HE ALSO SAID BARE UP ALIITLE LONGER THAN YOU THINK YOU CAN, LIFE WILL EVENTUALLY CHANGED. YOU ALL JUST WAIT AND WATCH. SO DON'T COMPARE SRK WIL AMITHABH BACHCHAN. MR. BACHCHAN IS A DIFFERENT MAN THAN SHAHRUKH KHAN. SRK IS A RUTHLESS, SON OF A B****. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HIS OWN FAMILY LIKE HE CARED FOR SOMEONE ELSE. YOU ALL CAN SEE THAT FOR YOURSELF. SRK SHOULD LEARN FROM AMITHAB BACHCHAN.
Looks like Karan Johar or Gauri Khan has written this...................what a joke!!!
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. That person makes a differance............
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.
Surely this is some kind of schizophrenia where she is glorifying the reasons for his denial and all that crap. I actually feel really sorry for her.
The whole AB and Rekha saga is big mystery all these years. I've always wondered if it continued on after Silsila. Its not like anyone of us really knew what went on behind closed doors.
