Evergreen Rekha gets ready for her TV debut
The latest buzz doing rounds in Bollywood circles is that Bollywood's original diva Rekha is all set to make her television debut as she receives an offer to be one of the judges for this year's edition of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.
Reports say that Rekha has been approached to judge the popular dance reality show which features celebrities along with a choreographer. Madhuri, Malaika Arora Khan and choreographer Remo Fernandes were on the judges panel last year. Madhuri will be a part of this season as well but insiders say when the offer was made initially, Rekha was very reluctant to accept it as she had never done television before. It took a lot of convincing on the part of the channel to make her say ‘yes’. But now that she has agreed, things have almost been finalised and a contract might be signed up soon.
Her penchant and obsession for dance is no mystery. The sexy siren is a trained Kathak dancer, a fact clearly visible through all the eternal mujra numbers that she has enthralled her audiences with for years.
Rekha is known in the film industry for being a master at another art form that of the glib talk. Although the dusky beauty hails from down South, she has been trained in speaking Urdu, English and Hindi. Her choice of words therefore reflects her multilingual abilities.
Both these qualities put together make a rare combination, something quite desirable for a judge of a dance competition.
Although Rekha had been approached on numerous occasions to be a part of reality shows on TV, this is for the very first time that the ageless beauty has agreed. "We had to really pursue Rekha, and she has finally agreed to be a part of the show. Things are almost finalized and we are looking forward to having her sign the contract soon. We are keeping our fingers crossed, as her presence will really boost the show. Stand-up comedian Krushna Abhishek and Kavita Kaushik aka Chandramukhi Chautala are likely to host the show," revealed a source related to the show.
