|Rekha, the diva of Indian silver screen whose beauty has always belied her age, turns 58 today.
The lovely Libran has kept herself away from films, but hasn’t been out of the limelight completely. Be it becoming the Rajya Sabha member or shaking a leg on stage to ‘Oh La La’ with Vidya Balan at an award function, Rekha is an inseparable part of Bollywood. She’s an actress who handles fame with the ease of a veteran.
Well spoken, ever decorous, Rekha has embodied a certain mystique, subtle sensuality that makes her stand apart from the crowd. Hrithik Roshan’s father Rakesh Roshan has said on record that he can’t make films without Rekha. So no surprises that she will return to silver screen in Krrish 3, once again as Hrithik’s mom.
Rekha is not given to pomp and show and therefore we expect her birthday to be a very private affair.
She has been a part of the film industry for 40 good years during which she has given us scintillating performances, mostly with films starring Amitabh Bachchan. Her best came in 1981 with Muzaffar Ali’s film ‘Umrao Jaan’ that had her playing the titular poetess and courtesan slighted by love and life.
As Rekha turns 58 today, we at ApunKaChoice have just this to say:
“In aakhon ki masti ke, mastaane aaj bhi hazaaron hain”.
Happy Birthday, Rekha. May you live long, healthy and happy.
