According to reports, Vinod Mehra and Rekha got married secretly. When Vinod had taken Rekha to his home to inform his mother, she had nearly beaten the actress with a sandal.
Sadly, Vinod Mehra's mother got shocked and was furious, realising that Rekha is her daughter-in-law. The actor's mother had started abusing and humiliating her.
Despite Vinod Mehra's multiple tries and requests, his mother hadn't let Rekha get inside her home and told her to go away right now.
Vinod's mother was way too agitated and she had reportedly taken a sandal in her hands to beat Rekha, which was enough to break her soul into pieces. After this, Rekha ran towards the lift in tears.
In the year 1973, in an interview, Rekha had talked about Vinod Mehra's mother and had stated that his mother wasn't a big fan of her ideologies and had always thought that she's a 'badnaam' actress.
Rekha had stated, "To her (Vinod's mother) I am not just an actress, but I am a badnaam actress with a rotten past and a reputation for being a sex-maniac."
The actress had also added that because of Vinod, his mother had tolerated her for some time in the beginning, but later, she had gotten completely furious at her.
After the incident, Vinod Mehra and Rekha still managed to keep a beautiful bond with no hard feelings for one another and had decided to move-on in their respective lives.
