Bollywood diva Rekha, who at 51 remains the heartthrob of Indian cine-goers, says she still hopes to meet her ideal man.
“I’m not in denial. If I find someone who’s willing to share me with my fans, I might change my mind,” Rekha said in a recent interview.
Speaking more about her man, the beauty said, “If I had a man, I would just be devoting all my attention to that one person. I’ll take out his clothes, personally monitor his menu, prepare the lunch and personally deliver it to him.”
In spite of still harbouring dreams of meeting her prince charming, Rekha does not crave for children. “I do not miss children. Even if I find the ultimate man to have babies with, it would be very unfair to my priorities. Because if I have a baby, I won’t be able to focus on anything else,” explained the star of the original Umrao Jaan.
When quizzed on the inevitable question of her glam appearance, she said, “I don’t have to spend hours planning and executing my clothes and makeup. I’ve done it for 40-odd years. I can’t bring myself to spend more than 15 minutes on it.”
And has the actor been bothered by factors like aging, illness and loss of beauty? “If I let these thoughts affect me, I would not be able to be creative. I am petrified of falling ill and going to the hospital. However, disasters are a part and parcel of life,” she said.
