[tps_footer]Rekha celebrates her birthday today but don’t get into the age. For her, it was, is and will always be just a number.
Even today, she looks as majestic as ever. While histrionics is unparalleled, it is her controversial ways that earned her even more popularity.
If you think it was only Amitabh Bachchan who forms the controversial side of her, think again! On her birthday, here are some of the controversies that made Rekha a huge name in the industry.
She was the first lady perhaps after Devika Rani, to kiss her male co-star unabashedly on screen. Her liplock with Biswajit in Anjaana Safar created a storm in the 70s and gained her some much needed fame.
Rekha again ruffled many feathers with her period film Utsav which was perhaps the most erotic film ever made in those days. Her poetic love making scene with Shekhar Suman started a controversy which lasts even today.
Rekha didn’t even leave the cover of a magazine without a controversy. She slipped into the same sweater with Kajol for the cover photshoot stirring a ruckus. People are still amazed about why such a photoshoot meant.
She left everyone in a daze when she announced that Mukesh Aggarwal was her second husband, who had committed suicide. She confessed that she had two failed marriages in an interview. So where’s the first husband?
