About Rekha ji:-
I have met the ultimate diva of Bollywood at a few occasions: first was at the Mr. India contest, where I was a contestant, and during one-on-one interviews, when I came face to face with her, I was speechless on seeing her beauty. Later, I choreographed her in my first film Zubaidaa, and then we bumped into each other at many social events. I recollect a few of my dance-based conversations with her and with help of timeless Indian melodies and the magician photographer Jayesh Sheth.
Talking about Rekhaji, Kathak legend Pandit Birju Maharaj told me “Usski aakhe, ussi adaa, lakho ke baatien karte hai and this is so true when she comes on stage to dance — one cannot look anywhere but at her perfect expressions and adaa .
Yes, it is true that Rekhaji rarely speaks to the press, but whenever she does, she speaks from the heart. Her life has been filled with super success and loads of controversies, yet she fought through it all and made a benchmark that no one can touch. Even today, draped in her exquisite kanvijaram sarees, wearing her trademark red hot lipstick when she makes an entry into any event, performs on stage or comes on a television show, millions lose their hearts and minds. That is the supremacy, the power, the mystery and the enigma of the diva of Indian cinema — the one and only Rekha.
