When Rekha sneaked inside Amitabh Bachchan’s residence

Remembering the incident when Rekha allegedly barged into Amitabh Bachchan’s 60th birthday celebration and the media came after her.

The storyline of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha continues to stir up curiosity and rumours among the glitzy gossips in the industry. There are still a lot of stories about the former lovers even after decades of their rumoured passionate relationship. There are pages about their complex position in gossip magazines, from Amitabh keeping a poker face when confronted by the diva on public occasions to Rekha declaring her love for him.

Lately, the former flames have avoided each other, kept a safe distance, and seldom ever appeared in the same frame. Rekha did, however, once make an honest attempt to be in the same room as her ex-lover. One such occasion was the celebrity’s 60th birthday celebration, which Rekha is said to have gatecrashed. Mr. Bachchan took his family and close friends to the Marriott in Mumbai on October 11, 2002, to celebrate his birthday. Rekha shocked everyone by showing up in her ornate traditional attire. Uninvited, Rekha and her assistant, Farzana, were seen walking into the hotel lobby. Many visitors were astonished to see the other woman in the hotel, and word quickly got out. The photographers and media soon arrived at the location, chasing Umrao Jaan.


Rekha was terrified, despite her desire to be seen beside her man on this important birthday. She was aware that things would not go well with the superstar or his family if she was discovered to be entering his birthday party without permission. She locked herself in the hotel’s closest bathroom and refused to leave until the reporters went away.

The supposed romance between Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan has been and is still a topic of discussion in “famous Bollywood affairs.” It all started when Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan got together on the sets of Do Anjaane (1976). However, the unfortunate aspect was that Amitabh Bachchan was already married to Jaya Bachchan at the time when allegations about his and Rekha’s purported affair began to circulate.

Their love never reached a happily ever after, and they both went on to lead radically different lives. Even now, after all these years, if they cross paths, it quickly makes the news. Rekha’s unfulfilled love for Mr Bachchan persisted even though she was the other woman in the relationship, and her eyes would still light up at the mention of him.
