Rekha, originally known as Bhanurekha Gemini Ganesan, was born on October 10, 1954. Her father was the famous Tamil film actor Gemini Ganesan and her mother, the Telugu actor, Pushpavalli.

She has seven sisters, the most famous of them being, Dr Kamala Selvaraj, a noted gynaecologist in Chennai.

She used to act as a child artiste in Telegu films before trying her luck in Hindi films.
Originally, she was dusky and fat and more importantly unable to speak Hindi.

Today, she has blossomed from the ugly duckling to a beautiful swan and is still capable of making heads turn at the age of 62.

Rekha’s Ex Husband: Vinod Mehra

Rekha has had many tumultuous relationships in life with various co-stars.

There were rumors that she had married the actor, Vinod Mehra with whom she had done films such as Ghar. She was just 19 years old at that time and maybe too young to understand the cruel ways of the Bollywood industry.

It was a very short lived marriage not lasting for more than a couple of months. She later denied the existence of the marriage in an interview to Simi Garewal in 2004.

Rekha’s Second Ex Husband: Mukesh Agarwal

She also married the industrialist, Mukesh Agarwal in 1990. This marriage also did not last long with Mukesh committing suicide a year later.

Mukesh was a business person who himself run a kitchenware brand. He proposed to her no longer after their first meet, and Rekha was pushed to say yes by his friend.

Their marriage life did not go well because of their long-distance relationships. His business started to fail, and this gave him pressure as well.

They agree with divorce contract on Sep 10, 1990. And people found Mukesh hanged himself few days later. This accident surprised all Bollywood industry at that time.

Yash Kohli: The Secret Romance

Rekha and Yash was gossiped that they got married secretly. At that time, she was suffered from Vinod’s disinterestedness, and his mother even didn’t like her. It was a hard time for her.

in contrast, Yash had a perfect personality, and they soon had feeling of each other. True or not, it was said that Yash gave Rekha a stable marriage life, but somehow they ended up with divorce again.

Ex-Boyfriend: Amitabh Bachchan

Rekha has been in a number of relationships with her co-stars in the Hindi film industry, Bollywood. The most prominent among her relationships was with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.

In fact, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha were very nearly married. This caused a lot of friction between Amitabh Bachchan and his wife, Jaya Bachchan, herself an actor of repute.

This resulted in a cold war between the two women in Amitabh Bachcham’s life, forcing him to make a choice between the two. He opted for his wife leaving Rekha in the lurch.

Relationships With Jeetendra

Rekha has also been in a physical relationship with Jeetendra, a famous actor at that time, as well as a infamous playboy. Jeetendra and Rekha had done umpteen films together.

Jeetendra was already married to Shobha Kapoor at that time. Rekha had a reputation of being a family breaker at that time. This romance also fizzled out very soon.

Kiran Kumar: Short Time Relations

In between, Rekha was involved with a small time actor, Kiran Kumar. Kiran Kumar is the son of famous yesteryear Hindi film villian, Jeevan.

Kiran Kumar was a tall and handsome actor during his younger days. This romantic liaison did not last for a long time.

Her Ideal Guy

Rekha’s first husband, albeit for a very short period, Vinod Mehra had a reputation of being a womanizer.

Rekha was very young at that time and very new to this industry. She may not have had any idea about the ideal husband at that point of time.

Maybe when she married Mukesh Agarwal in 1990, she might have had hopes about how a husband should be. Mukesh Agarwal was a businessman in Delhi.

Not much is known about this gentleman other than the fact that he was Rekha’s husband.
Anyway, he died very soon thereafter.

How She Thinks Marriage

Her marriage with both her husbands were shortlived. In fact, her marriage with Vinod Mehra, that she later denied ever having taken place, was for an extremely short period.

Her second husband, Mukesh Agarwal was a successful businessman in Delhi. It was a secret as to why he committed suicide soon after his marriage with Rekha.

In fact, he had stated in his suicide note that no one is to be blamed for his death. As both the marriages were shortlived affiars, there is no clarity on what she or her husbands think about marriage in general.

How many children they have?

Rekha does not have any children of her own. There is no question of having any further children at all for her now.

Her Ideal Dating Plan

Rekha is one of the most beautiful Hindi film actress till date. She is also very unlucky as far as her love life and marriage life is concerned.

However, she has her own idea of a date. That is to have a nice cozy dinner with her beau in an upmarket restaurant.

That may not be possible in India as she is famous and the person who she considers her beau has maybe the highest number of fans in the industry.

How her fan think?

Rekha is a famous actress having a great number of fans. Male fans adore her for her beauty.

Female fans love her for her sense of dressing and presenting herself before the media. Her fans naturally felt very sad for her when she lost her husband due to suicide.
