For years, the entertainment business has known of the celebrated actress' long-standing relationship with Hussain who not only introduced her in Dil Deke Dekho in 1959, but also collaborated with her on seven feature films, all super-hits, including Teesri Manzil and Caravan.

They also a shared a personal relationship that has come to light in Asha Parekh's new autobiography The Hit Girl.

On the need to speak out about the love of her life, the actress said: "Yes, Nasir saab was the only man I ever loved. It would've been worthless to write an autobiography if I didn't write about the people who mattered in my life."

From Teesri Manzil to Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Nasir Husain's cinema is celebrated in a new book

She credits her co-author for putting that part of her life. "My co-author Khalid Mohamed handled the whole episode so discreetly and gracefully."

Asha Parekh reveals that she never got married as she never wanted to take Hussain away from his family.

"I was never a homebreaker. There was never any ill will between me and Nasir Saab's family. In fact, I was so happy to see Nusrat (Hussain's daughter) and Imran Khan (grandson) at my book launch. I feel I've lived my life decently and without hurting anyone."
