Rekha’s Charisma leaves Katrina Kaif dazed!

Among the yesteryear actress the only actress who has maintained grace and elegance is unarguably Rekha

Recently Katrina Kaif, who has got the opportunity to work with Rekha in Abhishek Kapoor’s upcoming film FITOOR, was smitten by Rekha’s charm and charisma. 

Amazed at Rekha’s sophistication and zeal for life Katrina said, “Every time I have met her, I have been amazed by her warmth, her grace and her immense enthusiasm towards life. I am sure we will have a great time filming together and I am looking forward to it."

Termed as ‘Original Diva’ of Bollywood, Rekha is truly an inspiration for everybody. Readers would be surprised to know when Rekha made her debut in the early 70’s in Bollywood, she was severely criticized for her dark complexion and her plump body.

In an interview Rekha had candidly confessed how media made nasty gags regarding her looks. She once said, “In fact a leading newspaper had even labeled me as ‘Ugly Duckling’ and interestingly later the same newspaper lauded me for my transformation into a beautiful swan!” 

Few know that to acquire the stunning looks Rekha underwent strenuous makeover regime which reflected in her personal and professional sphere. 

Besides the magical makeover, what makes Rekha’s life a motivation is that despite failures in love life and living a lonesome life, Rekha has not been tucked down instead she lives life king-size.
