Bollywood’s “Bhaijaan” Salman Khan made his debut in the industry in a movie starring the dead-drop gorgeous Rekha “Biwi Ho Toh Aisi”. Even though both the stars were not shown as a couple or even together in the film, Khan dreamt of marrying Rekha ever since he was a child.
When Rekha appeared as a guest on Big Boss season 8, she shared a story in which she stated that young Salman Khan used to follow her when she went for her morning walk.
Rekha said, “I used to go on a walk in the morning and he used to be so little, must 6-7 years old, he used to cycle. I used to walk ahead and he used to follow me. Unko malum hi nahi tha ki uss waqt inko mujhse ishq ho gaya tha (He did not know at the time but he had fallen in love with me). It’s true because he went back and told his family that I want to marry that girl when I grow up.”
Khan started blushing and said, “Kafi laga tha mujhe, shayad isliye meri shadi nahi hui (I thought about it then, maybe that’s why I am not married)”.
Rekha then interrupted him and said, “Ab yeh boliye ki isliye maine shadi nahi ki (Now you should say, maybe that is why I did not get married)”.
The episode went on around Dabangg’s release and the actors performed a few dance numbers from the film and had Rekha saying the dialogue “Thappad se darr nahi lagta” but she twisted it a bit. She added, “Pyaar se bhi darr nahi lagta, voh toh main beintehaan kar sakti hun. Mujhe darr lagta hai bas ek hi cheez se lagta hai, Big B se, Bigg Boss se (I am not scared of loving, I can do that. I am just scared of one thing, Big B, Bigg Boss).”
Rekha saying Big B on the stage got applause from the audience, however, she meant Bigg Boss and not Amitabh Bachchan. Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan were rumoured to be a couple in the late 1970s. While Amitabh has stayed mum on the subject, Rekha has addressed the rumours in various interviews.
