The gorgeous Rekha turns 62 today, and there is no better way to celebrate the diva’s birthday than with five extraordinary songs that capture her ethereal beauty forever. Sit back, press play, and listen:
A list of the best Rekha songs must begin with this eternal classic: whoever said love begins with the eyes must have been watching Umrao Jaan.
Rekha is the quintessential nautch girl in this: inviting, alluring, and with the right hints of seductive.
Shot in the world-famous Keukenhof tulip gardens in The Netherlands, this remains the love anthem for many even now!
One of the few times Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle both sang together, this classic is a throwback to the golden age of Bollywood songs.
We end with this delightful cabaret number from Parineeta — no one can doubt Rekha’s diva status after this!
