Parekh has remained unmarried, claiming that her reputation of being unapproachable made people hesitate in asking for her hand in marriage.
In her memoir The Hit Girl, she confirmed rumours that she was romantically involved with director Nasir Hussain who was already married, but out of respect for both their families, she couldn’t marry him.
Previously, Parekh would only state that she had a longtime boyfriend but declined to elaborate on the relationship, only stating that “it was nice while it lasted.”
She said she had not seen Nasir Hussain during the last year of his life, as he became reclusive because of his wife’s death, but she did speak to him the day before he died in 2002.
