In 1990, Rekha was married to Delhi-based businessman Mukesh Aggarwal who died in a year. A few days after the marriage, the distance between Rekha and Mukesh grew. Rekha left Mumbai, leaving Mukesh. Mukesh also returned to Mumbai behind her. Then one day when Rekha was in London, Mukesh hanged himself with a fan in his flat and committed suicide, leaving a note, “Don’t blame anyone”.
