Once upon a time Amitabh Bachchan’s lady-love and Muqaddar ka Sikandar actress, Rekha shares a good bond with Kangana Ranaut, the controversial ‘Queen’. Rekha has been in the film industry and ruling it since 70’s with her ‘avtaar’, elegance and controversial secretive life yet she addressed anyone as her daughter. But things took a quite different turn in 2019, in a Marathi show when she named the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ actress as her daughter. She even went on to say that Kanagan is cute and if she ever had a daughter than she would want her to be like Kangana.
In fact, Rekha gifted Kangana a black and gold Kanjeevaram saree in that show. This happened before the release of Kangana’s film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. When Ranaut received the award she was seen being praised by the Silsila star for her performance. Kangana was spotted wearing a saree with a bun, gajra, necklace and jutti which is quite similar to Maang Bharo Sajna actress’ look.
Kangana looks upto Rekha as a source of inspiration as it is evident when Ranaut wished the ‘Umrao Jaan’ on her birthday she addressed her as her ‘godmother’.
Kangana Ranaut starrer upcoming film Dhaakad will have a theatrical release on October 1 this year. The actor took to social media to announce the date along with a new poster. The movie also stars Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta login.
