Hindi cinema’s evergreen actress Rekha has played more than one character on the big screen. He has been away from the film world for a long time, although he is often discussed and his popularity still remains intact. Rekha is also considered the most mysterious actress of Hindi cinema.
Rekha, along with her performance, beauty and excellent dance, always remains a part of the headlines among her fans due to her personal life. Affairs, breakup, marriage, divorce from husband, suicide of husband, keeping vermilion in demand even when widowed or divorced, all these things have kept Rekha in the headlines. She started working in films when Rekha was very young. Rekha has played lead roles in films at an age when she had to appear in films as a child artist. At the age of just 15, the actress saw a bad phase because of her mother. It is said that Rekha wanted to become an air hostess, not a film actress, although she came to films because of her mother.
Rekha’s mother’s name was Pushpavalli who was an actress by profession while her father Gemini Ganesan was also a famous actor. The relationship between Rekha’s father and her mother never went well and soon the two parted ways. While Rekha never got the love of her father, her mother also forced her to work in films at a very young age.
Rekha came into the film world at the behest of the family and at the behest of her mother. While every film artist goes through some bad experience on the sets of the film, Rekha has also had to go through bad experiences. The matter is in the year 1969 when she was shooting for the film ‘Anjaana Safar’.
The film was earlier shot in South Africa and Rekha’s mother lured her to act in the film by luring her to visit South Africa. However, when the film was shot in Mumbai, an unforgettable accident happened to Rekha. Actor Biswajit was in this film with Rekha and a kissing scene was to be shot between the two actors, on which there was a lot of ruckus.
When Rekha came to know that she had to shoot a kissing scene with actor Biswajit, she got scared and felt very uncomfortable. She too was nervous and refused to do so. However, after a lot of persuasion by the team, she agreed to it.
The kissing scene was shot only after Rekha’s wish. Rekha was already quite scared and nervous. At that time 35-year-old Vishwajeet had fallen in love with 15-year-old Rekha. Out of fear, Rekha was taking retakes again and again, on the other hand Biswajit’s senses were blown away. Rekha was caught by Bishwajit in his arms and he became completely uncontrollable in himself. It is said that the actor did not leave Rekha for 5 minutes and he kept on kissing Rekha for 5 minutes. Then Rekha became intoxicated. His eyes were filled with tears.
When the film reached the censor board, there was outrage over this scene of Rekha and Biswajit. In this connection, the film was released after 10 years in the year 1979 as ‘Do Shikari’.
