“I
was
not
born
with
a
golden
spoon
but
a
film
spoon,”
Rekha
had
once
famously
said
in
one
of
her
interviews.
No
wonder,
the
actress
ruled
the
celluoid
for
decades
with
her
enigmatic
charm
and
bravura
performances.
Off
screen,
the
diva
often
created
ripples
with
her
bold
statements
on
love,
life
and
more.
Rekha
who
was
once
mocked
by
her
classmates
when
she
told
them
that
she
would
be
a
star
one
day,
eventually
turned
out
to
be
one
of
the
finest
leading
ladies
in
Indian
cinema!

‘Amit
Mera
Pyaar
Hai…’

However
the
living
legend
never
believed
in
blowing
her
own
trumpet.
She
was
quoted
as
saying
in
one
of
her
old
interviews,
“I
don’t
care
much
for
success

it’s
an
alien
word
to
me.
I
don’t
believe
in
success,
I
don’t
believe
in
achievements
so
to
speak.
I
just
believe
in
relishing
every
moment
of
my
life.
That’s
enough
for
me.” Now,
that’s
some
pure
gold
advice
from
the
diva
herself.

To

On
The

Platform
As
Her

As
Rekha
turns
67
tomorrow
(October
10,
2021),
we
walk
down
the
memory
lane
and
bring
you
some
of
her
best
performances
which
prove
that
there
can
be
no
other
like
her!

Ghar

Touted
to
be
one
of
her
career-best
performances,

Ghar
helmed
by
Manik
Chatterjee
revolved
around
the
trials
and
tribulations
of
a
married
couple
who
find
their
lives
turned
upside
down
post
a
tragic
incident.
As
Aarti
Chandra,
Rekha’s
transition
from
a
happy-go-lucky
woman
to
a
wife
struggling
to
deal
with
the
aftermath
of
sexual
assault,
the
actress
delivered
a
heart
wrenching
performance.
Also,
don’t
forget
the
three
evergreen
songs,
‘Tere
Bina
Jiya,’
‘Aap
Ki
Aankhon
Mein’
and
‘Aaj
Kal
Paon’!

Muqaddar
Ka
Sikandar

Rekha
was
an
absolute
hoot
as
the
nautch
girl
Zohra
Bai
who
selflessly
loves
Sikander
(Amitabh
Bachchan)
in
Prakash
Mehra’s

Muqaddar
Ka
Sikander.
The
crowd
skipped
a
heartbeat
when
the
diva
went
‘Salaam-e-Ishq’
in
this
film.

Khubsoorat

Far
different
from
her
heavy-duty
films,
Rekha
gave
us
a
glimpse
of
her
lighter
side
in
Hrishikesh
Mukherjee’s

Khubsoorat

in
which
she
essayed
the
role
of
a
free-spirited
young
girl
who
sets
out
to
bring
a
change
in
a
stern
household
which
is
run
by
an
authoritative
matriarch.
Rekha’s
bubbly
aura
and
good-hearted
pranks
made
this
feel-good
film
completely
enjoyable.

xjaan-1633773356.jpg.pagespeed.ic.FnFGH1Qi1M.jpg

Umrao
Jaan

A
role
immortalized
by
this
ethereal
beauty,
Muzaffar
Ali’s
period
drama

Umrao
Jaan

featured
Rekha
as
a
poetic
courtesan
and
revolves
around
her
eventful
role.
Right
from
her
expressions
to
her
graceful
dance
moves,
the
actress
was
on
point
throughout
this
piece
of
art.
She
even
bagged
a
National
Award
for
this
film.

xsilsilaa1-1633774676.jpg.pagespeed.ic.dJ0WZ9Fk22.jpg

Silsila

Rekha’s
dreamy
performance
as
the
romantic
rebel
in
Yash
Chopra’s
love
triangle
Silsila
co-starring
Amitabh
Bachchan
and
Jaya
Bachchan
has
stood
the
test
of
time.
The
film
also
gave
a
hint
of
Big
B-Rekha’s
off
screen
romance
which
was
the
talk
of
the
town
back
then.
As
‘woh’ in
the
narrative,
the
actress
beautifully
portrayed
the
complexity
of
a
relationship.

Utsav

Another
noteworthy
performance
by
Rekha
where
she
left
the
audience
spellbound
with
her
sensuality
and
boldness.
The
erotic
drama
helmed
by
Girish
Karnad
is
based on
the
play

Mrichakatika
and
starred
Rekha
as
a
courtesan Vasantasena.

xijaazat-1633775432.jpg.pagespeed.ic.1aJ954oUrc.jpg

Ijaazat

Rekha
breathed
life
into
Gulzar’s

Ijaazat

which
was
a
mature
take
on
love,
marriage
and
relationships.
Right
from
the
time
when
the
film
opens
with
Asha
Bhosle’s
lively
number
‘Chhoti
Si
Kahaani
Se’
till
the
climax,
the
actress
delivers
a
solid
performance
in
an
author-backed
role.

Khoon
Bhari
Maang

Long
before
Sridevi,
you
had
Rekha
picking
up
the
whiplash
and
beating
her
wrongdoer
to
pulp
in
Rakesh
Roshan’s
cult
classic

Khoon
Bhari
Maang
.
As
a
simple
rich
widow
who
transforms
into
a
femme
fatale
to
seek
revenge
from
her
second
husband
after
he
tricks
her
and
leaves
her
for
dead,
the
actress
left
everyone
rooting
for
her
win
in
the
film.
