Rekha returns?


By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Oct. 19 -- Bollywood has an uncanny tendency to create trends. The latest seems to be that of veteran actresses returning to the screen as lead characters. Close on the heels of Sridevi's successful English Vinglish, now comes news that Rekha too might sign up to play a lead character in a film based on a Gujarati play called Baa Ae Mari Boundary.

Back in 1988, the actor portrayed a housewife who transforms into a model (as part of a revenge plot) in Khoon Bhari Maang. Twenty-four years later, if things go as planned, the fiftysomething actor will again play a housewife-turned-model in a film to be produced by Indra Kumar.

"Things are yet to be formalised, but Rekha is certainly in talks with Indra Kumar. She likes the story of a middle-aged woman (baa) neglected by her family. Right now, Kumar is busy with Grand Masti, but he is excited about the possibility of working with Rekha," says an insider.

Rekha was last seen in Sadiyaan (2010) along with Rishi Kapoor and Hema Malini.
