New Delhi: Evergreen beauty of Bollywood, Rekha, is currently busy promoting her film `Super Nani` on various TV shows.

For this purpose she reached the controversial reality show ` Bigg Boss 8`, where she entertained all and sundry along with host, Salman Khan.

Apparently while enacting a famous dialogue from Salman's `Dabbang`, Rekha accidentally let out that she is scared of Big B and was quick to rectify seconds later that this referred to as Bigg Boss.

Thappad se darr nahi lagta, pyaar se bhi nahi lagta, who toh mai bahut de sakti hu, dar lagta hai toh bas `Big B` se,” she said.

After three decades, one has heard Rekha take Amitabh Bachchan's name publicly even though she just said 'Big B'.

One can't help wondering if this was this just an accidental slip of tongue or the reality that reflected in her thoughts.

Their untold love story has been part of media speculation for several years.

It is said that their love started on the sets of `Do Anjane`. They did a series of films together after that.

'Silsila' was the last film that they did together. It is believed that it was the 'real life' story of Amitabh, Jaya and Rekha, which was being enacted on 'reel life'. It was said then that filmmaker Yash Chopra had done a coup of sorts by getting all three to act in his film.

The film depicts the love triangle between the characters of Amitabh, Jaya and Rekha.

Interestingly, the dance number that she performed with Salman on 'Bigg Boss 8' was from `Suhaag`(1979) which starred Rekha and Big B in it.

Another interesting incident which took place on the sets of the controversial show was that she interacted with every one except Puneet Issar.

As it is known, during the shooting of `Coolie`, Puneet had caused an inury (accidental) to Big B, which almost turned out to be fatal.

It seems like Rekha has not able to forgive Puneet after all these years.

Rekha and Amitabh's love story still remains a mystery, as none of them have admitted to their relationship in open. After their last film `Silsila`, their alleged 'love story' started to fade away from media space too.
