This "Weekend ka Vaar" with Salman Khan featured the timeless beauty Rekha as guest.
After enjoying her time on the sets with the superstar, she visited the "Bigg Boss 8" house to award Sushant Divgikar a beautiful saree for his marvelous dance performance.
While at the house, Rekha shared warm hugs with everyone, except Puneet Issar. The veteran actor wished him well from afar and left. And it is now understood that the reason for the royal snub Rekha gave Issar might have something to do with the injury Amitabh Bachchan suffered while shooting "Coolie" back in 1982.
"It is said that prior to the accident Amitabh and Rekha were an item and post the injury due to all the time Sr Bachchan spent at the hospital with family including Jaya Bachchan changed his equation with Rekha. After his recovery from the accident, Big B started maintaining his distance from the Super Nani actress," Bollywood Life reported.
Issar, who was struggling at the time, got an opportunity to prove his worth as a villain in the Manmohan Desai directorial. For an action scene, he had to punch Big B, and during the actual take, the punch landed on Bachchan's abdomen, injuring him severely.
"I (mock) punched him and threw him on the table as I was supposed to do. But Amitji took a leap, somersaulted and fell off the table. If you remember, that's where the shot has been stopped even in the actual film. Amitji said 'Mujhe lag gayi hai [I am hurt]'. At first, there was guilt. This was my first film after all. After the accident, Mr Bachchan told me 'Relax, these things happen while shooting. It was just a mock fight'," Rediff had quoted Issar in an old interview.
While Bachchan was reportedly quick in forgiving the debutant (Issar), it looks like Rekha - for whom the entire equation with the megastar fell apart after the accident - has not forgotten about it yet.
