Bollywood actor Jitendra was her first love
It is believed that Rekha's first love was her first co-star from debut movie Sawan Bhado actor Naveen Nischal. But Yaseer Usman wrote a book 'Rekha: The Untold Story' and revealed that Rekha's first love was Jitendra. Jitendra was, however, committed to his air hostess girlfriend Shobha. That's why their love story didn't go a long way, so in that case, Rekha's first love remained incomplete. After this Vinod Mehra was Rekha's love interest.
Rekha married Vinod Mehra
According to the reports, Rekha married Vinod Mehra and the marriage was held in Kolkata. After this, Vinod Mehra brought Rekha to his home, where she met with his mother.

However, there is no proof of their marriage and even Rekha told in an interview that Vinod Mehra was only her well-wisher.
Rekha and villain Kiran love story
After a breakup with Vinod Mehra, Famous actor Jeevan's son Kiran Kumar, who was famous for playing villain's roles, came in the life of Rekha. But Rekha's relation with Kiran was not acceptable for Jeevan. So in that case, even Kiran left Rekha.
