The Veteran actress Rekha and the Big-B of bollywood were in a serious relationship in the 70’s. However, Bachchan sahab married Jaya Bhaduri and things moved on. But, the actress still feels for the actor as she has many a times been vocal about the relationship.
She vocalised her feelings on the chat show hosted by her friend Simi Grewal in 2004.Talking about Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha said “I presently can't seem to come across a man, lady, kid who can help but fall totally, energetically, madly, frantically, passionately with him (Amitabh). So for what reason would it be advisable for me to be singled out? What do I deny? I'm not in love with him? Obviously I am. Duniya bhar ka love aap le lijiyega and include some more - I feel that for that individual.
The fact that Big-B was married does not made any difference. She says, “A rose is a rose is a rose. A human being is interesting,period”
I have the pleasure of being associated with this individual so what is ceasing me? I'm not here to 'break' his home by my words. I'm here to be one of the lesser humans who can simply have a whiff of him and feel the happiness.
She finds him really sweet.
We come across at many functions,his memory is quite sharp. And that one Namaste is quite all.
About their not working together since ages, she says “After all those controversy in 1981’s Silsila, I don’t think it was an easy thing to happen.”
Things didn’t turn the way they wanted but surely, they were the best couple on-screen.
