The film industry has known no triangular relationship more peaceful than the one shared among filmmaker the late Nasir Hussain, his wife and  actress Asha Parekh. During the  1960s and  70s,  the entire entertainment industry knew about the relationship between Nasir Hussain and Asha Parekh. He not only launched her successfully in Dil Deke Dekho opposite Shammi Kapoor, Nasir Saab, as he was affectionately known, cast Asha Parekh and no one else, in all his film Jab Pyar Kissise Hota Hai, Baharon Ke Sapne, Teesri Manzil, Phir Wohi  Dil Laaya Hoon, Pyar Ka  Mausam

But their relationship went far beyond  the  professional. Asha Parekh shared a very special relationship with Nasir Hussain. But never allowed  his family to feel in any way threatened. They mutually decided  they would  never marry and she would therefore never pose a threat to his family in any way.

She was not only very close to Nasir Hussain’s family but was even welcomed  by his wife. And that included Nasir’s nephew Aamir Khan who to this day calls her ‘Asha Aunty.’

Asha ji spoke about her one-and-only long-lasting relationship  in her biography by Khalid Mohamed. When I asked  her  why she thought  it prudent  to speak about her relationship so late  in  her life she explained, “If I  was doing a  biography it made  sense to  tell the truth about my  life. Otherwise why  do a  biography  in the first place?”

Speaking about  her relationship  she said,  “It was never a question of  just doing what made  me happy. There was a family to consider. I  never wanted to hurt his family.”
