Simi Garewal was well-known for getting B-town celebs to talk and divulge things about their personal lives hitherto spoken about on her chat show, Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. One such celebrity who Simi got to open up on her show was her good friend Rekha. Her question to Rekha about Amitabh Bachchan and if she ever loved him became much talked about in tinsel town. Rekha was also quite forthcoming in her response.

Today when Rekha was announced as the winner of the third National Yash Chopra memorial award, we asked Simi if quizzing the diva about Amitabh was difficult?

Without batting an eyelid, Simi said, “It was easy asking her the question about Amitabh. If I can ask Jayalalitha if she was ever loved MGR, asking Rekha about Amitabh was much easier. A lot of people ask me how I got her to open up. I didn’t know if I did anything special. I don’t want to analyse it. I just chatted as good friends. Rekha and I go back a long way.”

When asked if it was unfortunate Amitabh and Rekha never worked together again, Simi said, “After all that controversy, I don’t think it was an easy thing to happen. He is a married man with children and grand children. So much hungama happened that we couldn’t expect that to happen again but I do agree they make a lovely pair onscreen.”
