When Actress Rekha Told If She Was In ‘Love’ With Big B, Praised Jaya: ‘ I Admire That Woman’

When bollywood queen Rekha appeared on Simi Garewal’s Rendezvous in 2001, she was directly questioned whether she was ever in love with Amitabh Bachchan. However, back then, Rekha called the question “dumb” and replied it cryptically saying there is no person in the country who does not love Amitabh Sir.

“Absolutely. Duh, that’s a dumb question. I have yet to come across a single man, woman, child who can help but fall completely, passionately, insanely, desperately, hopelessly in love with him. So why should I be singled out? What do I deny? I’m not in love with him? Of course I am. Duniya bhar ka love aap le lijiyega and add some more – I feel that for that person. Bottomline,” Rekha had said.

However, the actress had denied any personal connection to Amitabh Bachchan saying, “There was never a personal connection with him, that’s the truth. Never ever. There was no truth to the controversies and speculation.”

In the same interview, Rekha had also hailed Jaya Bachchan. She praised her for her strength and dignity and admitted that she “admired” her. “Didibhai is much more mature, much more together. I’ve yet to come across a woman who is so together. She’s got so much dignity, so much class. She’s got a lot of strength. I admire that woman. We had an association before the so-called rumours and the media messed up the whole image. We were living in the same building and we had a relationship. She was my Didibhai, she still is – no matter what happens nobody can take that away. Thank God she realises that too. Whenever we meet she’s very sweet – she’s not just civil, she’s just herself,” Rekha said.

Rekha is popular for movies like Silsila, Khoon Bhari Maang, Umrao Jaan, Khubsoorat and Muqaddar Ka Sikandar among others.
