OMG! Did Sanjay Dutt and Rekha had a secret wedding in the 1980s?
Rumours say that the two came close on the sets of the movie Zameen Aasmaan.
With Sanjay Dutt’s new movie Bhoomi set for release, Bollywood’s so-called PR machinery is busy circulating rumours in the media circles.
However, there’s no smoke without fire and it was Sanjay Dutt who in a way made way for all these rumours at a recently concluded media conclave where he said that he had three girlfriends in the past at the same time.
“I was in three relationships at one point of time,” said Sanjay, adding that he never got caught.
So how did he manage to make his way around three women at one time?
“You need to be clever… one shouldn’t know what is happening with the other,” he added.
Now, the whole world knows that Sanjay Dutt has married three times. His first marriage happened in 1987 with Richa Sharma, which concluded as she, unfortunately, succummbed to cancer. In fact, Sanjay was quite heartbroken after his first wife’s demise.
He then married Rhea Pillai in 1998 (and divorced in 2005), who later on tied the knot and then divorced India’s Tennis ace, Leander Paes.
He finally married Maanayata Dutt in 2008 and the couple was blessed with twins in 2010.
However, that were not the only relationships Sanjay Dutt has had. In the 1980s there were rumours that Rekha and Sanjay Dutt came close to each other during the shooting of the film Zameen Aasmaan that was released in 1984.
During that time, it was also believed that the two had a full-fledged affair and even eloped to get married. While there has been no official confirmation on the same, some say that the sindoor that Rekha applies on her forehead is for Sanjay Dutt.
However, Yasser Usman the author of the book Rekha: The Untold Story has a different account to tell.
“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,” he said.
Then there were also news stories that linked Sanjay Dutt with Madhuri Dixit, however, the latter refused to marry him after his name was out in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
Whatever the truth is, Sanjay Dutt is in a happy marriage right now and having the time of the life. That’s what all matters, right?
