Waheeda Rehman, described by Amitabh Bachchan as 'Epitome of Indian beauty' turns 76 today. Glamsham.Com wishes her birthday greetings and prays for her a healthy and long life.


A lot has been written about Waheeda Rehman and Guru Dutt but readers would be surprised to know that Waheeda Rehman, besides Guru Dutt also shared a cordial relation with Dev Anand, Guru Dutt's best buddy.

In fact, though Guru Dutt discovered Waheeda Rehman but she was cast first with Dev Anand in C.I.D. (1956). Later, she did many more films with Dev Anand like KALA BAZAR, SOLVA SAAL, BAAT EK RAAT KI etc. In fact, when Dev Anand began his most ambitious movie GUIDE, Waheeda Rehman was his first and only choice.

Recalling her relation with Dev Anand, Waheeda Rehman in an interview said, ''Dev Anand was very supportive and had great confidence in my abilities.'' She adds, ''During the making of SOLVA SAAL, I remember the movie's director Raj Khosla, who had directed me in my debut film CID, asked me to wear a blouse which was very revealing. I told him that I wouldn't be comfortable in the blouse and even if I wear I won't be able to focus on my dance sequence being conscious of the revealing blouse.''

She continues, ''Though Raj Khosla gave me freedom to wear a blouse of my choice but he turned furious. When the shot began he began screaming at me and unnecessarily began finding fault in my dancing steps. Dev Anand was sitting nearby and observing the drama. When he found things going out of hand he stepped in and asked Raj to stop harassing me. He told him that I had worn blouse with his permission. Raj obliged.''

Since then Waheeda Rehman developed regards for Dev Anand and has the pleasure of working in three films under his Navketan banner.
