Scandal Point: When Rekha Sneaked Into Amitabh Bachchan’s 60th Birthday Bash



The  enigmatic Rekha loves  to let  the world  know about her  legendary proximity to Amitabh  Bachchan. Whether  it actually existed  or  not,  or what  its  duration was, is  irrelevant to Rekha. In  her mind they were always and  still are  a couple.
