Jukebox: Ijaazat to Utsav, B’Day Girl Rekha’s Most Memorable Songs
One of the finest leading ladies gracing Bollywood’s silver screen, Rekha’s ability to adopt the psyche of different characters is apparent not only from her performances on screen but also the way she owned the song sequences picturised on her. Such is her presence that she is at once the champion of her craft and entirely subservient to it.
Be it the live wire act in Sun Sun Sun of Khoobsurat or the evolved lyrics of Ijaazat, Rekha elevated the songs that made both her and her films memorable. In case of forgettable films, her parts remain indelible. Beyond Salaam-e-Ishq, here are the songs that reflect Rekha’s enigma. Here’s a jukebox in honour of the actor, who turns a year older today, 10 October.
