On her 60th birthday, the ultimate Diva of Bollywood Rekha revealed that “Love” is the reason for her radiant beauty and graceful demeanour for years, who will be seen on the silver screen as ‘Super Naani’ soon.
“I consume love,” the actress told veteran film critic Bhawana Somaaya in a radio interview to be broadcast on 92.7 FM on her birthday Friday.
“I think this is because before my parents gave birth to me, they were completely in love. They consumed a lot of love. So that’s what is in my DNA now and that is what I consume and feel.
“And with each moment love generates, like when you wake up in the morning and brush your teeth, for me when I just open my eyes, all I feel is love in my heart, my mind and my subconscious,” said the ageless diva.
Rekha believes love has a childlike innocence. Love apart, she also believes that a person’s beauty emerges from one’s “spiritual self”.
Praising the evergreen actress, Shah Rukh had once said, “Her name spells beauty, sensuality, talent, a timeless never ending charismatic appeal. She truly is timeless and terrific.”
The actress has delivered several hits in Bollywood and was one of the top actresses of her times. When out in public, Rekha always makes a statement with her golden Kanjeevaram sarees and bright red lipstick. Her signature style seems to have inspired new age actress like Vidya Balan and Sonam Kapoor too.
