Veteran actor Rekha’s personal life continues to obsess the media and the country. Suddenly a rumour about how she wears sindoor for Sanjay Dutt began going viral on the internet on Sunday. But as such things go, it was found to be false.
Yasser Usman, whose biography Rekha - The Untold Story was cited as the source of the rumour, has denied it. In an interview to Hindustan Times, Usman said that there was no basis to start such conversations.
Yasser Usman, Author, Rekha - The Untold StoryThis is wrong. Nothing of this sort has been mentioned in my book. People don’t read properly.
This is what Usman’s book says:
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.
“There wasn’t any marriage. This became big only because Dutt had to deny it officially,” adds Usman.
