That's right: a whole month devoted to the ever-fabulous Rekha, inspired by Sujoy at One Knight Stands. The fun starts Friday and continues all through October! I'll be writing up (at least) Khubsoorat, Nagin, and omigod Khoon Bhari Maang! And, if I have any mental energy left, trying to get my brain around the song from Janbaaz.
Biwi ho to aisi
Phool bane angaarey
Aastha in the prison of spring (some people think it's good but I think it's just delightfully campy)
Khiladiyon ka khiladi
Suresh - I've seen Umrao Jaan, Ijaazat, and Silsila and thought she was good in all of them, and I'm really looking forward to the campy ones, of which I have seen NONE. Hurrah - so many good things to see! :)
Lets go for Rekha month. What should be the twitter hashtag?
Suresh - I have seen THE SONG from that film several times :) Wot wot!
Banno - Oooh! I'll look for it! I've never seen anything from that show.
Sujoy - October sneaked up on us, didn't it!
Sharmi - I've seen it but didn't love it.
SVH - Amazing all the things films can inspire, no? :)
If I remember she had come over to the UK for the launch of the international version of 'Cine Blitz' magazine. She visited Southall for the launch & since I didn't live too far (Hounslow) I also went along. Unfortunately, due to the large crowds I only got a pic of her back as she entered the ABC Music shop ! However I did get an authographed copy of that 1st issue which I still have.
I had shared this interview earlier with Mister Naidu who kindly posted it on his site :
Hope you enjoy it ...
