Rekha (Actress) Height, Age, Affairs, Husband, Family, Biography & More
Rekha, originally named Bhanurekha Ganesan, was born on October 10, 1954, in Tamil Nadu, India. She is a renowned Indian actress known for her contributions to Bollywood films. At present, she is 69 years old.
Rekha is celebrated for her remarkable versatility as an actress. She received acclaim for her portrayal of diverse female-centric characters, such as the schoolgirl in “Khubsoorat” and the determined avenger in “Khoon Bhari Maang.” Her exceptional performances in these roles earned her prestigious recognition, including the Filmfare Best Actress Award.
One of her standout roles was that of an elegant courtesan in “Umrao Jaan,” which not only garnered her the National Film Award for Best Actress but also marked the beginning of a series of highly-praised performances. Throughout the 1970s and beyond, she consistently held the status of a sex symbol in the Indian media.
Childhood and Early Life
Rekha’s parents never had a formal marriage, and her father did not acknowledge his paternity during her early upbringing. It was in the early 1970s, as she was attempting to establish herself in the Bollywood film industry, that she publicly revealed the truth about her family background.
In her later years, during the pinnacle of her career, Rekha discussed her ongoing frustration with her father’s denial in an interview with a newspaper. She mentioned that despite various attempts at reconciliation, she had resisted those efforts.

Rekha has experienced multiple unsuccessful relationships with fellow Bollywood stars, including Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Mehra. In 1990, she tied the knot with Mukesh Aggarwal, a businessman based in Delhi, but tragically, he took his own life in 1991.
There were rumors circulating that she had been engaged to the actor Vinod Mehra in 1973. However, during a television interview with Simi Garewal, she clarified that she was not married to him and instead referred to Vinod Mehra as a “well-wisher.”
Many politicians voiced their opposition to her nomination to the Rajya Sabha due to her frequent absence from sessions. Rekha’s nomination to the Rajya Sabha took place in April 2012, alongside Sachin Tendulkar. Ultimately, she was elected by the Food, Consumer Affairs, and Public Distribution Committee. However, it’s worth noting that Rekha has only been present in the Rajya Sabha for 80 out of the 348 possible days.
Due to the severe financial strain on her family at the time, she found herself with no other option but to pursue acting. While she was actively seeking employment, her parents’ connections in the Telugu film industry provided her with the opportunity to secure a role in the film “Rangula Ratnam,” marking her debut as a child actor in 1996.
Her first leading role as an actress came in the Kannada film “Goadalli CID999.” She went on to become a prominent heroine in Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi films. Her Hindi film, “Sawan Bhadon,” released in 2000, emerged as a blockbuster hit, catapulting her to fame in a matter of seconds.
