It wouldn't be wrong if one maintains that Rekha redefined the term picturisation. Blame it on her sensuality, her elegance and her range of expressions every song Rekha appeared in looks like a masterpiece in itself. Be it her Lukhnowi courtesan in Umrao Jaan’s Dil cheez kya hai aap meri jaan lijiye to the sensuous Man kyun behka from Shekhar Suman co-starring Utsav Rekha owned every number.

How could fans forget her charm in Tere bina jiya jaaye na, from Ghar to her hopelessly romantic avatar in declaring her love in Pardesia from Amitabh Bachchan's Mr Natwarlal. On the occasion of her birthday, we revisit Rekah's evergreen songs.
