Never has Bollywood’s old romance raised its head so forcefully and loudly. Rekha made a splendid view as she entered the Rajya Sabha in a gold sari to take her oath.
While we’ve still not tired of the ‘Hema, Rekha, Jaya aur Sushma…’ joke, Rekha joins other stars like Shatrughan Sinha, Chiranjeevi and Jaya Bachchan in the Upper House of the Parliament. Speaking of which, it was a bit surprising that even the RS cameramen went a little wild when Rekha arrived at the podium and swung the cameras to Jaya to note her reaction. It would have been even wilder if they had gone the ‘Award Function’ way and used older footage of Jaya making faces or swearing, but we guess that was enough of an adrenaline rush for the RS broadcasters for one day (Plus, it’s a live event).
Oddly enough, Mrs. Bachchan didn’t give any filmy reactions. But it was old Amar Singh whose comment was the icing on the cake, “Its Jaya Bachchan’s own ‘Silsila’.”
And for those wondering who Rekha’s lucky neighbour would be, it’s a bit of a dampener for guys as social activist Anu Aga gets the seat.
