Rekha is always an enigma but her presence lights up any event, be it an awards night or a film premiere. However, of late, she has been attending a lot of events that have either of the Bachchans in the spotlight. A few days ago, the diva showed up for a special screening of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer 102 Not Out.
One would think she would stay away from a Bachchan starrer, considering the tabloid history that they share (the link-up with Amitabh Bachchan is one of Bollywood’s most enduring urban legends!). But nowadays Rekha makes it a point to be seen as close to the Bachchan parivar as possible. Recently, she was also seen grabbing Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan anywhere she meets them to shower with hugs and praise.
She also makes it a point to greet Jaya Bachchan like a long-lost sister. But if sources close to the Bachchans are to be believed, all the affection showered by Rekha is a tad bit embarrassing for the parivaar. While Abhishek and Aishwarya have been very polite and warm, Jayaji, not known to hide her feelings, allegedly makes her discomfort evident. The latest appearance of Rekha at the special screening of 102 Not Out has once again set tongues wagging. Normally she avoids making a beeline for Big B’s premieres. But this time she apparently couldn’t resist being a part of the appreciative gathering. During and after the film she was heard praising the film, especially Big B’s performance.
And thus the urban legend continues….
