Sizzling Rekha and her Life

The glamorous diva, the charismatic beauty Rekha turned 58 today! Born to legendary Tamil actor Gemini Ganeshan and Telugu actress Pushpavalli, Bhanurekha Ganeshan's  journey through childhood was not an easy one. She had to grow up without her father around. Was dropped out from school at the age of 13 to join films to support her family financially.

She never wanted to be an actress, but destiny had its own plans. She made her debut as a child actor in a Telugu movie Rangula Ratam in 1966. Her debut as a heroine was a Kannada movie Goa dalli CID 999 in 1969 with Rajkumar. Her first Hindi film was Anjana Safar in the same year. 
Rekha entered into films at an early age of 12
She was criticized a lot initially for her looks and her Hindi. She worked real hard to transform herself from an overweight  dark, ordianry girl into a glamorous and beautiful enigma. She ruled the film industry with some incredible and noted performances in films like Do Anjaane(1976), Ghar (1978), Muquaddar Ka Sikandar, Khubsoorat(1980), Umrao Jaan(1981). Kalyug, Baserra, Utsav, Ijaazat, Khoon Bhari Maang and so on.

She still remains to be one of the enigmatic beauty of Bollywood. Happy B'day Rekha ji!
