Bollywood's famous love triangle Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, and Jaya Bachchan talked about gossip columns and the entertainment world. Their news still grabbing headlines whenever something happens in their lives.
Currently, Amitabh Bachchan is busy with his film shooting. He will be next seen in Goodbye with Neena Gupta and Rashmika Mandanna. On the work front, Amitabh has plenty of projects in his kitty. Chehre, Jhund and Brahmastra are among them.
Last year, when Amitabh announced that he is coronavirus positive and the same day actress Rekha's bodyguard was reportedly positive for COVID-19, and hence people started linking both the cases.
Coming back to Amitabh and Rekha, the actor always dismissed his affair, but she did accept that something was going on between them. In an interview with Filmfare in November 1984, Rekha spoke candidly about Amitabh denying his affair with her and what made him do so.
"Why should he have not done it? He did it to protect his image, to protect his family, to protect his children. I think it is beautiful, I don't care what the public thinks of it. Why should the public know of my love for him or his love for me? I love him, he loves me – that's it. I don’t care what anybody thinks," Rekha had said.
"If he'd reacted that way towards me in private, I would have been very disappointed. But has he ever done that? I ask you. So why should I care about what he's said in public? I know people must be saying bechari Rekha, pagal hai us par, phir bhi dekho. Maybe I deserve that pity. Not that he has 10 rollicking affairs! Mr Bachchan is still old-fashioned. He doesn't want to hurt anybody, so why hurt his wife?" Rekha asked, as reported by Bollywoodshaadis.com.
When she was asked how she would confirm the relationship every time when Amitabh denied it, Rekha had said, "My reaction is not a typical reaction, I know that. But there's a total fulfilment. We are human beings who love and accept each other for what we are. There's more happiness in our lives than misery."
"Nothing else matters. But as long as I'm with that person, I don't care. I cannot identify me with anyone else. Don't publish this. For he'll deny it. Then I'll affirm it. Then there will be a statement from his camp saying, 'No, no. she is nuts like Parveen Babi.' Then I'll say 'No, no. Parveen Babi is not here, but here I am to issue a statement.' Anyway, why should I be talking to you about my personal life? I am a very creative person. I have lots of interests. People love talking about my personal life. But I want to keep it to myself. Mr Bachchan is important to me, not to anybody else," Rekha had said.
