Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha's 'rumoured' off-screen romance was a fodder for gossip columns way back in the late 70s. Over the years, both of them mostly avoid bumping into each other at events and are said to be reportedly sharing a cordial equation with each other.
Recently the diva attended Dabboo Ratnani's star-studded calendar launch party which saw the attendance of many known faces from B-town. The launch event was a glossy affair with the who's who from Bollywood striking their best pose for the cameras.
However it was Rekha who ended up giving the paparazzi 'the video of the year' while posing against the picture backdrop. Check out the video here-

An 'Oops' Moment
When she casually turned to check the photographs mounted on the wall, she realized that she had accidentally posed in front of Big B's photograph.
Realizing what had transpired, the 'Silsila' actress swiftly moved away, with an expression that's been captured on camera and is going viral on the internet.

When Rekha Opened Up About Big B On Simi Grewal's Show
In her 2004 interview with Simi Garewal, Rekha had spoken about Amitabh Bachchan at length, admitting that she fell in love with him but insisting there was no affair.
She had said, "He was something I'd never seen before. I've never met anyone like him. How can so many good qualities be bestowed on one person? I'm not a fool, I'm intelligent or so I'd like to believe. When I see a good thing, I can recognize it."
She also claimed that he had "no clue" how she felt and that much ado was made about nothing. The reported affair didn't happen. "You want to know the truth? This is headline, OK? There was never a personal connection with him, that's the truth. Never ever. There was no truth to the controversies and speculation" she had told Simi Garewal.
She Had Also Addressed Reports About Her Rift With Jaya Bachchan
"Didibhai is much more mature, much more together. I've yet to come across a woman who is so together. She's got so much dignity, so much class. She's got a lot of strength. I admire that woman.
We had an association before the so-called rumours and the media messed up the whole image. We were living in the same building and we had a relationship.
She was my Didibhai, she still is - no matter what happens nobody can take that away. Thank God she realizes that too. Whenever we meet she's very sweet - she's not just civil, she's just herself."
