9 Characters That Make Rekha One Of The Most Badass Actresses In Bollywood

The idea of a woman being weak, sacrificing and abla is time and again encouraged even today (remember Sultan?). But there have been some actresses in our film industry who have defied these common societal norms and portrayed onscreen powerful characters.

Rekha is one such diva who celebrates her 63rd birthday today and we must say each year she gets more graceful and stunning. Here are some of the most iconic characters pictured on Rekha; once called an ugly duckling but now considered to be one of the most beautiful women.

#1. A  killer wife (literally) in Do Anjaane (1976)

#2. Revenge-seeking woman in Khoon Bhari Maang (1988)

#3. Her restrained yet intense role in Ijazat (1987)

#4. A rape survivor in Ghar (1978)

#5. The alluring Lucknow courtesan in Umrao Jaan (1981)

#6. 5th century Ujaini sensuous courtesan in Utsav (1984)

#7. The “other” woman in Silsila (1981)

#8. Dehati yet badass bahu in Biwi Ho Toh Aisi (1988)

#9. An independent, fun-loving girl who breaks the norm of a “perfect bahu” in Khubsoorat (1980)

These are just some of Rekha’s most memorable films. Her talent and beauty know no bound and we wish the legend a very happy birthday and a long healthy life.
