Rekha was rumoured to be in a relationship with her married co-star Amitabh Bachchan. The couple was last seen together in 'Silsila,' and their affair ended soon after. Rumours were rife that Amitabh had secretly married Rekha because she was seen wearing sindoor and mangalsutra at Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh's wedding. It is said that she captured all the limelight that night. But nothing came out of these reports.
