Rekha on Rekha

"Do you know what it takes to be a Rekha?... Do you know what millions of people all over this this world want to give to be a Rekha?" - Rekha

A supremely confident and stunningly beautiful Rekha talks about herself on the BBC shortly after her tour de force performance in the phenomenally successful Khoon Bhari Maang in 1988.

Many thanks to Asli Jat for this video. :)

For the review of the vinyl Lp of Khoon Bhari Maang go here.

For an in-depth and fab review of the movie Khoon Bhari Maang visit bollywooddeewana's wonderful blog here.


  1. Thank you so much for this video, what a Diva she actually is, check out how she dissed filmfare on receiving the national award when she said

    "this wasn't a filmfare award it was the real thing"


    She's amazing and i'd watch any film with her in it. You might wanna add the trashily hilarious Phool Bane Angaray to your must see list it, perhaps the clip below will convince you to do so ;0)


    P.s do you know what film the song at the beginning of the second clip is from

  2. YW. Thanks must also go to Asli Jat. He recorded the video years ago and made it available for use on this blog.

    Yep, Rekha is a Diva supreme! Love her Filmfare comment, too.

    Just saw the youtube video. lmao. Some serious butt kicking.. Prem Chopra gets it bad lol..think I'm gonna get that DVD. Thanks.

    I'm afraid I don't know the name of the film that Part 2 opens with. Maybe someone can come up with the name and post it here.

  3. Part 2 opens with a song from 'Biwi Ho to Aisi' which incidentally was Salman Khan's debut (before Maine Pyar Kiya).

  4. Thanks to Asli Jat & Thanks Dashing for confirming the song

  5. Ooooh what a fantastic interview! How very capital-S Star to talk about not being beautiful, not wanting to act, etc. She has such a wonderful ease but also seems very high above us (perhaps because we never see the interviewer, so it's a bit like she's speaking from on high) and is indulging us. LOVE! And the Filmfare and marriage comments are awesome :)

  6. Beth, Glad u enjoyed the post :) Rekha is one of a kind!
