There are very few actors who can touch your life the way Vinod Mehra and Rekha did. Their pairing was one of the most talked-about and sought after in the 80s. They gave the cine-goers some of the memorable films like Ghar, Elaan, Pyar Ki Jeet and Jaani Dushman to name a few.

Apart from their on-screen chemistry, Rekha and Vinod also grabbed headlines for their off-screen chemistry. Reportedly they had even tied the knot but chose to keep their marriage a secret. Vinod’s daughter Soniya Mehra in a recent interview opened up about his closeness with Rekha.

In her heyday, veteran actress Rekha has been linked with several of the leading heroes. While Rekha has always refuted the rumours of marrying Mehra, however according to Yasser Usman’s book ‘Rekha: The Untold Story’, the actress had reportedly married her Ghar co-star.

Now reacting on these rumours, Vinod’s daughter Soniya Mehra told ETimes, “I cannot comment on that question because I am not in the know. It was all before I was even born (Vinod Mehra passed away when Soniya was just one-and-half year old). Frankly, I also don’t have a right to comment on it as it is their life. As far as I am concerned, they were just close and dear friends.”

Soniya is Vinod’s daughter from his first marriage to Kiran Mehra. When questioned if she has ever asked her mother Kiran about her father’s relationship with the Silsila actress, Soniya told the portal, “Honestly no, I haven’t felt that way. Everyone has a past and his/her own journey. It’s not my place to judge or enquire. If it’s something important, I will be told.”
