Bollywood’ veteran actress Rekha has always been the talk of the town for her exclusive fashion and beauty choices since forever. She is the timeless diva who has ruled Bollywood in her period and still continues to do that with her appeal and sizzling personality.
Rekha or Bhanurekha started her film career in the industry at the age of 14 years-old. Since then she has been ruling the hearts of her millions of fans. The queen of Bollywood has very rarely opened about her personal life and illegitimate affair with the Shehenshah of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan and troubled married life.
The South Indian beauty was smitten by the charming handsome Amitabh Bachchan ever since she met him on the sets of Do Anjaane. But the twist in the story was that, Big B was then already married to wife Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan. The rumours of their love affair spread like perfume around the industry.
While Rekha was openly professing her love for Big B to her family and friends, he always denied of the allegations of any linkup.
But there was one event where Rekha did something scandalous which left everyone amazed at the event. In between the rumours of the secret marriage between Rekha and Big B, a dolled up Rekha came to the the wedding event of actor Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, wearing ‘sindoor’ on her forehead.
Since Big B did not approve of any commitments, Rekha tried to find peace with industrialist Mukesh Agrawal who proposed her for marriage. But after the unfortunate death of her husband, the widow Rekha still wears Sindoor proudly to everyone’s astonishment.
In an interview in 1982, the actress made a statement trying to clear the questions about the sindoor by saying:
“In the city where I come from, it’s fashionable to wear Sindoor”.
Well interestingly, yesteryear actor Punnet Issar’s wife Deepali made a claim while quoting Rekha to a leading entertainment website saying that she wears sindoor for Amitabh Bachchan whom she strongly love and respect from her core.
Even after all the alleged rumours the evergreen Bollywood queen, Rekha is always seen in her signature ‘Kanjeevaram’ sarees with the perfect application of ‘Sindoor’ on her forhead as a mark of her exclusive fashion couture.
