Veteran actress Rekha gifted singer Neha Kakkar a beautiful Kanjivaram saree when they met on the set of the singing reality show Indian Idol 12 recently. The actress said a saree was the "most beautiful attire" someone could wear, which is why she decided to present the newly-married singer with a saree. "It's always said whenever you meet someone newly-wed you should pour them with your blessings. I believe a saree is one of the most beautiful attire someone can don. So, I decided to gift Neha a saree only," she said. Indian Idol 12: Aditya Narayan Performs ‘Rangeela Re’ for Jackie Shroff in Singing Reality Show.
