On Sunday, stories that Rekha was secretly married to Sanjay Dutt went viral. Citing the actor's biography, Rekha - The Untold Story, as the source, many publications even wrote that she applies sindoor in his name. While netizens were still digesting this piece of news, Rekha's biographer, Yasser Usman, has quashed these reports.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Yasser said, "This is wrong. Nothing of this sort has been mentioned in my book. People don't read properly." Clarifying what he wrote in the book that led to these reports, he said, "Rekha and Sanjay Dutt were working in a film together, probably Zameen Aasmaan (1984). The rumours of their affair surfaced at that time. In fact, some went on to say that they got married. These rumours became so strong that Sanjay Dutt had to deny the allegations in a magazine. It was an official denial."
The writer added that even though "there wasn't any marriage," the news made headlines because Sanjay Dutt made an official denial.
