For the first time: Rekha ditches makeup, looks her age
Does Rekha still look as much of a diva when the makeup is wiped off, kanjivarams are exchanged for something less glitzy and the heavy jewellery is gone? That is a question most Indians have discussed over the years.
Now, finally we can tell you the answer – it is yes and no.
To begin with, Rekha – like all other humans – is not ageless. When she stepped out of home to watch the screening of Alia Bhatt, Randeep Hooda-starrer Highway on Monday in Mumbai, the makeup was minimal and the outfit was an off-white kurta-churidar. And she was looking her age.
Even though Rekha looked graceful and beautiful in the simple avatar, the signs of ageing were there, normally hidden under carefully applied makeup. Looking a little tired as well, she studiously avoided the cameras. The shuttebugs, on the other hand, could not stop clicking her.
