Singer Chinmayi Sripada shared an Instagram post on Sunday–an excerpt from Rekha’s biography Rekha: The Untold Story by Yasser Usman.The biography details how Rekha was blamed for the suicide of her husband, Mukesh Aggarwal.
She was called a witch by her in-laws and even disregarded by her Bollywood colleagues.Read it here:
Sharing it, Chinmayi wrote, “Subhash Ghai and Anupam Kher’s quotes, circa 1990 on Rekha if reported verbatim, is how some men are made.It is unbelievable how Rekha survived and thrived.”
Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s father filed an FIR against Rhea in July, accusing her of abetment to suicide.
The case was sent to the Central Bureau of Investigation and is also simultaneously being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau.She has been bombarded with hateful messages on social media.
