Rekha’s biography, ‘Rekha: The Untold Story’, written by Yasser Usman has recently been published. Known for defying social norms, and considered too strong headed for her times, Rekha’s bold life is full of unsolved mysteries.
Yasser has attempted to decode the life of Rekha through this biography. The book has a lot of heartwrenching incidences from the superstar’s life.
One of the most painful revelation is how at the age of fifteen, Rekha was sexually assaulted on a film set.
During the shooting of Anjana Safar, the director hatched a plan with film’s male lead Biswajeet to catch a 15 year old Rekha off guard for a kissing scene. The actress was shocked when Biswajeet caught hold of her and kissed her forcefully for a long time. With the entire crew members watching and hooting at the actress’ harassment, the incident earned Rekha the tag of ‘sex-kitten’.
