Legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan and timeless actress Rekha have been at the center of Hindi cinema's most talked-about love story. Despite their immense closeness, the two icons have never starred together in a film and have not been seen together since their breakup.

Age Gap of 12 Years

There is a 12-year age difference between Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan. Despite this significant gap, Amitabh and Rekha had deep feelings for each other.

On-set Affair Led to Breakup

It is said that Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan's affair lasted for about five years. During the 1970s, they worked together in several films, starting with their first movie, "Do Anjaane," released in 1976. It was during the shooting of this film that Rekha and Amitabh grew very close to each other.

In an interview on Simi Garewal's TV show "Rendezvous," Rekha revealed, "When I found out that Amit ji had signed 'Do Anjaane,' I was a little scared. Although in some cases, I was senior to him. But then he had already achieved success with his film 'Deewar.'"

Physical Altercation Led to Breakup

Amitabh and Rekha also worked together in the 1978 film "Ganga Ki Saugandh." During the shooting of this film in Jaipur in 1977, a man from the crowd made inappropriate comments about Rekha. Despite attempts to reason with him, when the man didn't stop, Big B intervened and physically assaulted him. This incident is mentioned in Yasser Usman's biography of Rekha, "Rekha: The Untold Story."

Relationship Never Publicly Acknowledged

Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha's love story continues to be talked about in Bollywood circles. Their romance is still famous in the film industry, although they never publicly acknowledged their relationship. They never confessed their love in front of the world, nor did they accept their relationship.

In an interview with Filmfare magazine in 1984, Rekha denied her relationship with Amitabh without taking his name. She said, "Imagine I couldn't tell that person what I felt. I couldn't figure out what that person was going through."

End of the Affair

Jaya and Rekha were very good friends. When Jaya learned about Amitabh and Rekha's relationship, it came as a deep shock to her. However, she wanted to save her marriage. According to media reports, once Jaya invited Rekha to her home for dinner.

That day, Amitabh was not at home. Rekha came to Jaya's house, and both had dinner together. Jaya showed Rekha around her home, and they got along very well. However, when Rekha was about to leave, Jaya simply said to her, "I will never leave Amit." This statement from Jaya ended everything. After that, Amitabh and Rekha's relationship ended.
