  • It take guts to be the face of a brand whose name is inappropriate. But Rekha readily accepted the offer and was featured in this poster. Rekha perhaps has been the only yesteryear heroine who was linked with maximum of her co-stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Raj Babbar, Vinod Mehra, Akshay Kumar, Jitendra and many more. Rekha has been the ultimate diva of Bollywood and still looks so gorgeous that she can give younger actresses a run for their money.
