She responded I was a baby when he moved out of our lives ' when asked what she remembered about her father. Even while he was at home I can't recall it. However her family's dysfunction was never given to the actor as a concern. Instead she heard fascinating tales from her mother about her father. Since her mother had to go shoot Rekha spent the majority of her youth living with her grandmother and aunt. Rekha has five sisters: Kamala Selvaraj Radha Jaya Sreedhar Vijaya Chamundeswari Revathi Swaminathan and Narayani Ganesh. Her brother is Sathish Kumar Ganesan.

Rekha’s school is Church Park Convent School in Chennai. She had to drop out of school at the age of 13. She had a difficult life and was forced to pursue a career she had never wanted.

She said she had always been a shy and lonely girl and had been overweight as a child. Rekha used to spend her time at the school chapel and called herself a strong believer in God and destiny.

Rekha’s Affairs and Relationships


Rekha's first well-known relationship in Bollywood was with Jeetendra a superstar. For his casual flirting with his female co-stars Jeetendra was well-known. Rekha and Jeetendra had worked together on various films. Rekha reportedly had a romantic interest in the superstar but Shobha Kapoor was already his wife when they first met. Rekha was labelled as a home-breaker by many when rumours about their purported dating began to circulate. As a result their romance ended tragically.

Vinod Mehra

Rekha had a great and well-known relationship with Vinod Mehra. Vinod's charm enchanted the actress and vice versa. The union between the two was solemnised in a brief ceremony. When Vinod brought Rekha to Calcutta at the time to introduce his new wife Kamal Mehra treated her harshly according to a filmmaker. 

He added that when a sobbing Rekha ran for the elevator Vinod's mother shoved Rekha away and nearly took off her sandals to strike her. Vinod her husband followed her and urged her to remain calm and enter the house while the matter was being resolved. Rekha however had refuted claims that she had ever been married to Vinod Mehra.

Amitabh Bachchan

The most talked-about relationship to have ever developed in Bollywood is Rekha's affair with Amitabh Bachchan. The Khoon Bhari Maang actress has expressed her admiration for Bollywood's Shahenshah in subtle ways. With the release of the film Do Anjaane Rekha and Amitabh made their debut on the big screen. Then they showed up in Yash Chopra's blockbuster Silsila. She responded I was never impressed by the commonplace when questioned about it in an interview. Additionally he was unlike anything I had ever seen. He's never shown any signs of pain to me.

Sanjay Dutt

Rekha's alleged relationship with Sanjay Dutt surfaced decades later in the 1980s. The pair ruled off the likelihood of such a connection. Rekha is rumoured to apply sindoor on Sanjay Dutt. Rekha and Sanjay Dutt were working on a movie together most likely Zameen Aasmaan according to Yasser Usman's account in his book Rekha: The Untold Story (1984). At that time rumours of their relationship started to spread. Some even claimed that they later got married. Sanjay Dutt was forced to refute the charges in a magazine since the rumours got so out of hand. A formal denial was made.

Rekha's Marriage

Rekha married Mukesh Aggarwal in 1990. Rekha reportedly made the first call to Mukesh who was immediately enamoured by her beauty. Within a month of getting to know one another they decided to be married as a result of their frequent encounters. 

Soon after Mukesh's business began to suffer and he began to idly hang out on Rekha's sets much to her embarrassment. Mukesh committed suicide on October 2 1990 by hanging himself from a ceiling fan. Rekha: The Untold Story claims that Mukesh had severe ongoing depression and was not at all pleased with Rekha's acting career.

Vinod Khanna Raakhee Rekha Ranjeet and Amjad Khan also have significant roles and Nirupa Roy and Kader Khan make cameos. The movie portrays the tale of Sikandar an orphan reared in Bombay's slums who is portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan. The Bengali novel Devdas served as a loose inspiration for the movie's plot (1917).

Sikandar who is orphaned and homeless struggles to survive day by day while doing anything he can to survive on the harsh streets of India. Sikandar finds work at the affluent Ramanath's home and soon develops feelings for Kaamna his employer's daughter. Obviously Sikandar has little possibility of finding love because of their social classes but with time Sikandar moves up from his lowly position. The highest-grossing Bollywood movie of 1978 and all-time Diwali blockbuster was Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. After Bobby and Sholay it was the third-highest-grossing Indian movie of the decade. In the Soviet Union Muqaddar Ka Sikandar was also a foreign box office success.

It was up for nine Filmfare Awards at the 26th ceremony including Best Film however it didn't take home any of the prizes. It was converted into the Tamil movie Amara Kaaviyam and the Telugu movie Prema Tarangalu (1980). (1981).

When Vikas regains consciousness he finds himself in hospital with a head wound. He is told that Aarti who was assaulted and gang-raped is being treated at the same hospital. 

This incident garners media attention and is brought up by politicians during their election campaigns. Vikas feels plagued by this experience and is unsure of what to do next. On the other hand Aarti has suffered severe trauma and is unable to put her trust in any man. Only a miracle can restore the old spark to the couple's marriage as they currently confront a critical issue that is resulting in a loveless relationship.

However a shady crew of crooks decide to set Giridhari up and have him jailed on false extortion accusations as he starts to bother them. Natwarlal then makes the decision to exact revenge on the people who killed his beloved brother so he creates an imposing alter ego and starts gaining favour with other criminals. To positive reviews Rekha portrays Shanoo a straightforward villager.

The famed Indian conman Natwarlal served as both an inspiration for the title of the movie and the protagonist. In this film the gimmick of having Amitabh sing was used for the first time.

Mr. Natwarlal was a Super Hit according to a trade guide a high-end box office journal in the 1970s and 1980s.

Then two cups of tea appear at their table as they begin to put the shards of their relationship back together to achieve closure. For this group which harbours no animosity toward one another but finds it difficult to live in harmony life's circumstances become cruelly conflicting.

Rekha’s Controversies

Amitabh Bachchan

Generations of people have heard about the famed supposed relationship between Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan. They were the audience's favourite on-screen couple but rumours said that despite Amitabh Bachchan's marriage to Jaya Bachchan the two were secretly seeing each other.

Jaya Bachchan Slapping Rekha

On the set of the film Ram Balram Jaya Bachchan is said to have publicly SLAPPED Rekha. When Jaya learned that her husband and Rekha were cast together in Ram Balram she attempted to have Zeenat Aman take Rekha's place. Rekha was able to persuade the director (Vijay Anand) and producer (Tito Tony) to keep working with her by offering to work for free. Amitabh too refused to criticise the movie. As a result Zeenat was placed opposite Dharmendra while Rekha was matched with Big B.

Forceful Kiss

Rekha was just shy of 15 years old when she began filming her first movie Anjana Safar. That didn't stop Raja Nawathe the director from planning a kiss sequence without telling Rekha. Actor Biswajit Chatterjee moved in for the kiss after something was uttered. Rekha was stunned by the five-minute duration of the scene.

Rekha’s Secretary

Yasser Usman the author of Rekha's biography also made passing references to the possibility that Rekha had a romantic involvement with Farzana her female assistant. It appears that no one else not even the housekeeper is allowed inside the actress's bedroom other than Farzana.
