Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood's two living legends, share their birthdays close to each other just like their relationship. Their chemistry on-screen was widely loved and so was their rumoured love affair that became the headlines many-a-times.
Even though Amitabh never spoke openly about it, Rekha made several revelations about it. She spoke about the relationship between herself and Amitabh on the talk show 'Rendezvous with Simi Garewal' and said that "Amitabh is a treasure trove of qualities."
"God has made him a fellow who has supreme quality," she said and added that "She loves Amitabh Bachchan more than a mother, daughter, friend" and all the kind of love she has around the world.
She also said that Amitabh Bachchan and she never had a personal meeting and the two have never even spoken on a personal level.
At the same time, Rekha had also said, "Amitabh Bachchan never spoke to her personally except for dialogues. There was no truth in controversies and speculation."
This was the time when Rekha had also revealed that "I didn't have any disagreement with Jaya Bachchan either."
"We both had a lot of connections but the media tarnished the entire image. We both lived in the same building. She was my sister-in-law, still there, no matter what happens, no one can take him away from me. Thank God he also realizes it. He meets me very lovingly whenever we both meet."
In one of her interviews, Rekha also said, “Amit Ji is an old-fashioned man. He never likes to hurt anyone, then why would he hurt his wife? "
Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan were last seen together in Yash Chopra's 'Silsila'. Rekha and Amitabh never worked together after this film.
