Who would know Rekha better than her daughter-in-law? Well, before you start scratching your head and make numerous wild guesses, let us reveal you that we are talking about her on-screen daughter-in-law Shreya Narayan, who stars in upcoming film SUPER NANI. As Bollywood’s evergreen diva Rekha turned 60 today, her co-star Shreya goes gaga over her.

”Rekhaji’s life is an ode for women who want to realise their path with single-minded dedication. She has uncluttered her life to leave her free to do what she loves most – to act. Today, she is not young, yet more beautiful than most – a contradiction in a country like India where beauty is associated only with youth. But on her 60th birthday, she is a better actor than she was five or 10 or 20 years back. And that’s her triumph,” Shreya says.
She further shared her first impression about her screen-idol Rekhaji.
”Rekhaji made an impression on me because my grandfather had asked me to watch UMRAO JAAN six months before he died. And I was told, that he always enjoyed it. Movies being a scarce commodity in our home of books and letters, this was a medal of honour. Else she would have remained news, gossip and magazine covers, as she is to most people,” she says.
Indeed, Rekhaji is an icon for everyone!
