When Rakhee Gulzar Revealed She Preferred Isolation Even After Having 19 Members In Her Family

When you're a part of the glamour world, it is expected from you to be very social since Bollywood is all about friendship, relations and favours. You're required to attend parties, make connections to step forward in your career. When you're in this business for a long time, you become kind of habitual to such kind of lifestyle where people always surround you. However, there have been stars, who contrary to popular opinion, prefer seclusion over glamour!

On 15th May 1973, Gulzar had tied the nuptial knot with the industry's golden girl, Raakhee Majumdar. In December 1973, the couple had welcomed their first child, their daughter, Meghna Gulzar. But astonishingly one year after Meghna's birth, Raakhee and Gulzar had decided to part their ways. The reason was the fact that Gulzar had wanted Rakhee to quit acting after their wedding. Although, she had tried convincing him for many years and rejected tons of huge scripts in the process.

In an old interview with The Quint, Rakhee ji had talked about her preferences and her life and had said, "Seclusion has been my choice. Although I had 19 family members, I would still isolate myself in the house. As for film and kitty parties, these are just a waste of time. Instead, I would take off to morning shows to catch up on the films of V Shantaram, Sohrab Modi, Mehboob Khan and K Asif. Like my grandson, Samay, I also like the company of nature and animals. Whenever, I feel claustrophobic in Mumbai, I take off to my Panvel farmhouse."

Back in the year, 2018, in an interview with News 18, Gulzar had talked about his relationship with his estranged wife, Rakhee Gulzar, on which he had said that both of them had already lived a lifetime together. Well, that's a trademark Gulzar-style reply, and he had explained this saying, "Even today, whenever I want to eat fish cooked by her, I first gift her a saree as a bribe like I used to do when we were courting. I gifted her so many sarees during our courtship days that I learnt to identify beautiful Dhakai and Tant sarees. I used to gift her the best ones. I still do."

Going further in his interview, the veteran lyricist had also highlighted the fact that both of them were always there for their daughter, Meghna and somehow, it the reason why they are still together. He had stated, "From when Meghna was a child till the time she grew up, there hasn't been a single occasion, moment, incident or celebration that we haven't shared with each other. We have been together through it all — disagreements, fights and happy times. If this is not being together, then I don't know what is. We still have a little argument in every two-three hours. And that I think it is only fair."

Rakhee had also talked about her relationship with Gulzar in an interview with Stardust, "We deserve an award for the best-split couple. We are more well-adjusted than most married couples. Gulzar and I are there for each other. He treats me as if I were still his wife. He calls me from his house and tells me, 'I've called four friends for dinner. There's no food at home. So please, quickly send some jhinga curry.' I send it across. His other favourite is kheer, and he loves me to make it for him."
