‘In aankhon ki masti ke, mastaane hazaaron hain’ — If the song personifies anyone in Bollywood, it has to be none other than Rekha. With her drop dead gorgeous looks, the yesteryear actor made her fans, spanning all age groups, swoon for all these years.

Having made her acting debut as a child in a Telugu film and four years later, making her debut as a lead heroine in Sawan Badhon, Rekha has worked in over 180 films in her five-decade long acting career. While her films have always garnered attention for the roles she portrayed on-screen, she often got herself embroiled in controversies too. Nevertheless, she continues to walk ahead holding her head high.

Films apart, her fashion sense has also never failed to impress fans and set new trends. Even in the recent years, Rekha has often slayed it with her style statements and fashionable picks. And not to forget, she often left younger starlets awestruck with her stunning looks and the confidence she exudes. Whether it’s Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Shilpa Shetty or Madhuri Dixit, all these stars, among others, have shared their fan girl moments with Rekha.

As Rekha turns 63 today, she continues to defy age and those who haven’t seen her in her younger days are definitely missing out on something. Here’s taking a look at 15 pictures from Rekha’s early days in Bollywood, which prove that she was always a diva. Check out:
