Whenever the love story of Hindi cinema is discussed, the names of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha will come first. They have both worked together on films like ‘Do Anjaane’, ‘Mr. Natwarlal ‘,’ Silsila ‘,’ Do Anjaane ‘,’ Namak Haram ‘,’ Muqaddar Ka Sikandar ‘. There was a time when there was no newspaper or magazine that did not print stories on both issues. But Rekha and Amitabh never spoke of this relationship. Amitabh’s bond with Rekha took place after her marriage to Jaya Bhaduri. A few years after her marriage to Jaya in 1973, news of Rekha and Amitabh’s romance began to appear.
Jaya was very upset with the news of Amitabh and Rekha’s adventure. She wanted the family to somehow survive their laughing sports, on the other hand, Rekha became a villain due to the crime of loving a married man. Then one night something happened that Rekha walked away from Amitabh’s life forever.
One day when Amitabh was out of Mumbai in connection with a shooting. That day, Jaya calls Rekha. As she picked up Jaya’s phone, Rekha thought that Jaya would say the good and the bad. but that did not happen. Jaya calls and calls Rekha at her house for dinner. Rekha wondered what was happening to her that she had never expected.
When Rekha arrived at Jaya’s house for dinner, Jaya welcomed her well. Jaya talks a lot about Rekha. But Amitabh was not mentioned in this conversation. After dinner, when Rekha started to return home, Jaya said something special to her, after hearing the ground slide under Rekha’s feet. Jaya told Rekha at the door ‘Whatever happens, I will not leave Amit’.
The next day, Jaya and Rekha’s dinner was widely reported in the media, but neither Jaya said anything nor Rekha opened her mouth. Apparently something happened between Amitabh and Jaya about Rekha, forcing Amitabh to make such a decision that he could never work with Rekha. ‘Silsila’ was Amitabh and Rekha’s last film together. The distance between the two has come so far that if they ever meet in real life, they will steal their eyes and go out, but their hearts still respect each other even today.
