When Rekha revealed, Amitabh Bachchan doesn't want to hurt Jaya, why he remained silent about their affair
In an old interview, Rekha has confessed that Amitabh Bachchan did not want to leave Jaya Bachchan because he hates hurting people, read on.
The love-saga between Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan was one of the most-talked and controversial affairs of the Bollywood industry. While Rekha openly spoke about her relationship with Amitabh, he always choose to remain silent.
Rekha till date wears sindoor, and mangalsutra. If reports are to be believed, then she does it for Amitabh Bachchan. Their romance began in full-swing while Amitabh was already married to Jaya.
Jaya Bachchan was a silent spectator to this alleged romance and could do nothing about it. The rumours of Rekha and Amitabh's PDA and romance were surfacing everywhere, while Jaya was suffering silently.
Reports state that Jaya even cried when she watched a romantic scene between Rekha and Amitabh in a movie.
In an old interview, Rekha revealed that it does not matter to her if Amitabh did not accept her in public. Rekha said that he is not accepting their relationship because he doesn't like to hurt people, so how could he hurt Jaya; his own wife.
"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.
That's how Amitabh Bachchan earned the family-man tag, and Rekha had to bear the pain of separation.
