Who is Rekha’s boyfriend now? I’ll introduce her lover and private life.
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 artist in Telegu films before trying her luck in Hindi films. Originally, she was dusky and fat and above all, unable to speak Hindi.
Today, she has blossomed from the ugly duckling to a beautiful swan and is still makes heads turn at the age of 62.
Rekha’s Ex Husband: Vinod Mehra
Rekha has had many tumultuous relationships during her life, and many of them were with various co-stars.
There were rumors that she had married the actor Vinod Mehra with whom she acted in 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 more than a couple of months. She later denied the existence of the marriage in an interview to Simi Garewal in 2004.
Yash Kohli: The Secret Romance
According to rumors, Rekha and Yash got married secretly. At that time, she was suffering because of Vinod’s lack of interest, and his mother didn’t like her too. It was a very hard time for her.
Unlike her husband at the time, Yash had a perfect personality, and they soon developed feelings for each other. Legend has it that Yash gave Rekha a stable marriage life, but somehow they ended up divorcing again.
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 on divorcing on Sep 10, 1990. Mukesh was found dead a few days later – he had hanged himself. The accident was a huge shock to the Bollywood industry of the time.
Ex-Boyfriend: Amitabh Bachchan
Rekha has been in a number of relationships with her co-stars in the Hindi film industry, Bollywood. The most widely reported among her relationships was the one with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.
In fact, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha were just like a married couple. This caused a lot of friction between Amitabh Bachchan and his wife, Jaya Bachchan, herself a widely known actress.
This resulted in a cold war between the two women in his life, forcing him to make a choice between them. Eventually 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 who also happened to be an infamous playboy. Jeetendra and Rekha had starred in an incredible number films together.
Jeetendra was already married to Shobha Kapoor at that time, and Rekha had a reputation of being a family breaker. Not unlike her other flings, this romance also died out very soon.
Kiran Kumar: A Short-lived Love Story
In between, Rekha was involved for a short while with actor Kiran Kumar, the son of Jeevan, who acted as the villain in the famous Hindi film “Yesteryear”.
Kiran Kumar was a tall and handsome actor during his younger days. This romantic liaison did not last for a long time.
Her Ideal Type
Rekha’s first husband Vinod Mehra, with whom she was married for a very short period, had the 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. Unfortunately, he left us short after their divorce.
Views on Marriage
Her marriage with both of her husbands were short lived. In fact, her marriage with Vinod Mehra, which 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 lasted very little, it is not clear 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 and popular Hindi film actresses, even today. She is also very unlucky as far as her love life and marriage life is concerned.
However, she has her own idea of how to go on dates. That is to have a nice cozy dinner with her beloved in an upscale restaurant.
That may not be possible in India as she is famous and the person who she loves has maybe the highest number of fans in the industry.
The Fans’ Opinion of her Romances
Rekha is a famous actress and she has a great number of fans. Male fans adore her for her beauty.
Female fans love her for her sense of fashion and for the graceful ways in which she presents herself before the media.
When she lost her husband, the press was very stark in its judgment of her. Magazines called her “Witch”, and blamed the failed relationship as the primary cause of his death.
Her fans naturally felt very sad for her when she had to go through this dark period and were very supportive of her.
