Today is the birthday of Bollywood's evergreen beauty Rekha. Rekha was born on 10 October 1954 in Chennai and is the daughter of Jamini Ganesan, a famous actor of South. You would know that Rekha's mother Pushpavalli was a Telugu actress and since childhood, Rekha got a film atmosphere but she never wanted to become an actress. Rekha started her career from the year 1966. Not only hit, Rekha also did some B grade films.
While Rekha started her career with the film 'Saavan Bhado', it was also her first hit film, but 'Pran Jae Par Vachan Na Jaye' was also a film in which Rekha was seen. It is said that there was a lot of uproars when I saw the posters of Rekha exposing in the film, and the situation at that time was that the audience went to the theatre just to see Rekha. During that time, Rekha was seen in the role of Tawaif in the film and the scene of Rekha taking a bath in the pond and coming out without clothes, made a lot of headlines.
In the initial days, Rekha is also said to have worked in some B-grade films in Tamil and in Bollywood Rekha had to be a part of erotic films like 'Kamasutra'. On the other hand, Yaser Usman's book 'Rekha - The Untold Story', depicts the story of Bhanurekha Ganesan becoming the most glamorous star and style diva of Hindi films, who is a dark and not knowing Hindi. It is said that Rekha had to face sexual exploitation in the first Bollywood film and that film was released after many years.
