For a person, who has enthralled fans with both her beauty and acting skills over decades, words alone may not be sufficient to pay the perfect tribute. In India, at least a generation has grown old in awe of her, and the new one is also no less charmed. The evergreen Rekha celebrates her 61st birthday today, we look back at 5 of her ever charming songs. Even words will fail to define these classics of this ageless beauty:
Pardesiya (Mr. Natwarlal, 1979)
We love the desi-ness of this song and Rekha’s village belle avatar.
Sun Sun Sun Didi (Khubsoorat, 1980)
Rekha charmed us with her childishness. This song is still fun to hear and will remind you of Rekha’s vibrant self.
In Aankhon Ki Masti (Umrao Jaan, 1981)
The grace, that poise and the ‘nazakhat’ is just unmatchable.
Pyar Do Pyar Lo (Jaanbaaz, 1986)
Rekha was seen in this special number as a cabaret singer and we were just wowed! We just wonder if anyone can match up to her sexiness.
Kaisi Paheli (Parineeta, 2005)
In Sunidhi Chauhan’s voice, Rekha showed us why she holds the undisputable title of ‘Evergreen beauty’. The vintage look in a red shimmery sari, Rekha’s presence was simply glamorous.
Let us know which is your favourite.
Happy Birthday Rekha!
