Filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar talked about his special connection with veteran actor Rekha recently.
Speaking to actor-host Preity Zinta on her chat show — Up, Close and Personal with PZ on UTV Stars — Farhan, who is Rekha’s neighbour, said, “I remember the times when we used to have our birthday parties in our back lawn and Rekhaji would come to the balcony of her apartment and click our pictures, then later she would send them across to us.”
Later, the chat veered towards actor Hrithik Roshan aka Duggu as he is fondly called. Akhtar has worked with him in Lakshya (2004), Luck By Chance (2009) and this years’ Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. “Hrithik is very good but he doesn’t exude that in his personality. He’s very friendly, loving and not at all insecure. I was never intimidated by him. Rather it was very exciting working with him.”
