Noted for her versatility and acknowledged as one of the finest actresses in Hindi cinema, Rekha has managed to cave in the crowd’s attention by starring in more than 150 films in her over 50-year long career in the film industry.
Pinkvilla posted today several pictures of the actress over the years to relive some of her best moments in the industry. Rekha, who was honoured with the Padma Shri in 2010, had started off as a village belle and then a sexy siren to a mother to the lead actor.
Rekha has done it all.
In all of the pictures, the ‘Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love’ star exudes timeless elegance in ranges of sarees and hairstyles that Indian cinema will always associate her with.
