The untold story of Amitabh-Rekha-Jaya | Love story of Amitabh Bachchan Rekha and Jaya Bachchan
Did you hear the hidden story of Amitabh, Jaya and Rekha? Amitabh and Rekha, these two names never came together. But their names also couldn't stay apart. This most talked love #story of #Bollywood is still a mystery. That's because these two legends never admitted their love in public. But everyone is still curious how this affair started and why it ended. Today we are going to unfold the secrets of this heart-warming love story of Bollywood.
The film set of Do Anjaane was the starting point of their love story. It was 1976 when Big B was already married to Jaya. They started meeting in the bungalow of Rekha's friend initially. That time no one in the industry knew about this love affair. Everything was going smooth. But then an accident happened in the sets of Ganga Ki Saugandh.
It was 1978 when in the sets of Ganga Ki Saugandh a co-actor of Rekha started misbehaving with her continuously. Big B was very angry, and he started losing his temper on that actor. This secret love was not a secret anymore. It grabbed the limelight and captured media attention. Though these two never accepted their love, it was loud and clear when the director of the movie Silsila, Yash Chopra confirmed their #relationship.
The secret marriage of Rekha and Amitabh
This gossip reached the next level when a newspaper published that these two stars got married secretly. This speculation caught fire when the diva, Rekha entered into the wedding venue of Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor wearing a mangalsutra and sindoor. Everyone was stunned when they saw Rekha's new wedding look. It was not a secret anymore that Rekha tied a knot with superstar Amitabh secretly.
Rekha was fearless from the starting of her career. She started flaunting her love for Bog B in front of everyone. It raised more eyebrows when she directly went up to Amitabh to talk to him at that party. According to the sources Jaya tried to keep firm initially. But who can withstand another woman in her husband's life? So after a short while, everyone noticed that she bent her head when tears rolled down from her eyes.
At that time, a new name was waiting for Rekha that was a controversy queen. After some time she left that party. But this bold step of this controversy queen raised many questions for Bachchan family.
Jaya's answer to Rekha
It was high time Jaya Bachchan should take action. So, she invited Rekha for dinner. In between the conversation, she candidly let her know that she would never husband in any situation. Till now as you see, Jaya never broke her promise. On the other hand, Rekha was not ready to accept anything less than Mrs. Bachchan. So she decided to stay single.
Amitabh never accepted his relationship with Rekha. Rekha gave an interview in the year 1984 to Filmfare magazine. In that interview, she spoke about it.
She said Mr. Bachchan never accepted this truth to protect his image. He wanted to protect his family, and children as well. She further added why the public should know about his love for her or her love for him! She boldly accepted that she loved him and he loved her. Mr. Bachchan would never react in the same way he used to in private.
According to her, Amitabh was old fashioned. He never hurt anybody. How could he hurt his wife?
Though Amitabh never admitted his love for Rekha, Rekha accepted her love in public. Silsila was the last film of this enigmatic couple.
Yash Chopra, the famous director of the film Silsila, accepted their relationship in an interview given to BBC. He said he was very scared during the shoot of Silsila as the real-life got life into reel life. In this movie, Jaya played the character of his wife and Rekha played the role of her girlfriend which was the truth in reality. So, anything could have happened as they were working together in this film at that time.
The end of the relationship
People started recognizing Rekha as "other woman." Amitabh was not in a mood of ending his marriage with Jaya. So, just like that film Silsila, Rekha left from the life of Amitabh and Jaya silently. This is how this love story ended both off and on screen.
Rekha finally moved on and tied a knot with Mukesh Agarwal in the year 1990. She finally got what she desired for a lifetime, a legitimate surname. But fate played a lousy game with her again when Rekha saw her husband taking pills all day. She got to know that her husband was mentally ill. Still, she tried hard to survive because she really wanted to spend the rest of the life with her husband. But destiny decided something else for her. They were in London over a week when Mukesh said with a gloomy face 'There's an AB in my life too.'
Rekha couldn't find a solution and decided to leave her husband and his family. Mukesh then hanged himself with Rekha's dupatta and their marriage ended within just seven months.
Does true love end?
It is said that Rekha still is in #love with Amitabh even after so many years. In the year 2008, she gave an interview to Hindustan Times. In that interview, she said Mr. Bachchan was the best thing that happened in her life. She regards him as the best teacher and the best guru. She learned a lot from him both on screen and off screen.
Rekha shows her love and support for her love by wearing sindoor. Though, she always claims that it is just her style statement. But the wife of the actor, Puneet Issar once confirmed that she wears sindoor for Amitabh only.
They worked in a film Shamitabh again after Silsila which was directed by R Balki. They acted in the same film without sharing the screen.
It is said that nothing can be more powerful than time. It can heal any wound including the wounds of true love. But the scars remain forever. This film was the most significant proof of that.
