New Delhi: Bollywood’s original diva Rekha might have gladly accepted nomination to the Rajya Sabha, but one person who mustn’t have been equally happy is Mrs Jaya Bachchan.
The two ladies have reportedly been at loggerheads over three decades- reason Amitabh Bachchan.
The ‘angry young man’ of the 1970’s was allegedly in a relationship with Rekha post marriage to Jaya. The duo shared screen space for the last time in Yash Raj’s ‘Silsila’ and since then haven’t worked together.
Hence the animosity between Mrs Bachchan and Rekha!
Apparently, Jaya Bachchan who happens to be a representative of the Samajawadi party in the upper house does want to be seated near Rekha.
Jaya and Rekha have been allotted seat numbers 91 and 98 respectively.
So Mrs Bachchan has requested for a seat change to the chairman of the Rajya Sabha, citing the death of Brijbhushan Tiwary, a former member of her party. Tiwary was allotted seat No 92.
Minister of state for Parliamentary Affairs Rajeev Shukla will now have to a tough time figuring out where to comfortably make the Bachchan lady seated.
