When Rekha’s classmates laughed at her dream of becoming a movie star: “Shaqal dekhi hai? | Bollywood
After entering the film industry as a child artist, Rekha rose through the ranks of success one blockbuster at a time to become one of Bollywood’s most popular stars in the 1970s and 1980s. She starred in hits such as Silsila, Umrao Jaan, Khubsoorat and Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, to name a few.
However, Rekha once revealed that his school friends did not believe in his dreams of becoming a great actor. During her appearance on Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, Rekha revealed the impact of Saawan Bhadon’s success on her life when she mentioned her friends.
âI was happy because I received all the importance and attention. My sisters were very happy too, my mother was very happy. We could buy all the cars and the house. And besides, my school friends were really envious because when I would say who knows maybe I’ll be a star tomorrow, and they would say, ‘achha, apni shaqal dekhi hai aaine mein? (Really, did you see your face in the mirror?)’ and they didn’t know where to look (after my first movie was a success) as they said, âBhanu made it after allâ, âshe said, referring to her birth name Bhanurekha.
In the same interview, she also revealed that she never wanted to be an actress when she was 13. “No, never. At that point all I wanted was to be married and to be loved and to spend the rest of my life with someone who really really took care of me and had children. . Lots and lots and lots of children. I wonder why I felt like this back then. But that’s what she (Bhanurekha) wanted, “she said.
