When it comes to naming a timeless diva of Bollywood who has reigned supreme and has been known for her acting prowess, unabashed opinions, and her classic style, only one person comes to mind and it is Rekha. She is the timeless beauty who personifies grace with poise every time she walks out to an event. Named Bhanurekha Ganesan, Rekha managed to make a place in everyone’s hearts with her stellar performances in films like Khoobsurat, Umrao Jaan, Mr Natwarlal, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar and many more. 

What remains the most memorable in her filmography is her ability to nail expressions while dancing like a dream. Be it projecting the feeling of first love or just winning hearts with her graceful classical dance moves, Rekha gave her fans a treat every time she was seen in films. Some of her most memorable songs are still used as a reference by young aspiring women who wish to become a Bollywood actress. Inspiring millions of girls with her talent, unabashed opinions and her fashion, Rekha can be tagged as Bollywood’s ultimate expression queen. 

On her birthday, we bring forth 5 of her most loved songs that will remind you why she is the queen of expressions. Here’s wishing Bollywood’s legendary star, Happy Birthday!

Pardesiya (Mr. Natwarlal)

The fun song that features Rekha as Shanno sees her dancing her heart out while declaring her love for her beau, Natwar played by Amitabh Bachchan. Showing off some of her fun moves and nailing the bohemian look, Rekha showed us how to be the queen of dancing while enjoying every move. Crooned by Lata Mangeshkar & Kishore Kumar, the song is one of the most memorable and iconic ones in Rekha’s filmography. 

In Aankhon Ki Masti (Umrao Jaan)

When one thinks of Umrao Jaan, the novel doesn’t even come to our minds, but what does come to our minds is a picture of the evergreen beauty Rekha, clad in gorgeous attire and what one can hear is the song, In Aankhon Ki Masti from the film Umrao Jaan. With an understated subtlety, Rekha performed Mujra as Umrao Jaan and yet, gave everyone a glimpse of innocent Amiran with her eyes. Rekha’s expressions in the song make it hard for anyone to look away. The song was crooned by Asha Bhosle and is one of the most iconic songs in the Hindi cinema. 

Dil Cheez Kya (Umrao Jaan)

Another song from Umrao Jaan, Dil Cheez Kya showcases Rekha performing more with her eyes than with her body. Her expressions of wooing the patrons who come to watch her dance will leave you awestruck every single time you watch it. The most amazing thing is to see Rekha perform the song and nail the classical dance moves with perfection. It surely is a song that you couldn’t miss. 

Salaam-e-Ishq (Muqaddar Ka Sikandar)

One of the most hit pairings of that era, Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan are seen in the classic number, Salaam-e-Ishq from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. In the song, dressed in a stunning hot pink Anarkali, Rekha looked ethereal. As she grooved to the beats of the song, Rekha showed us how to win hearts with just a gaze. Crooned by Asha Bhosle, Rekha’s facial expressions will win you over with this song. 

Ghum Hai Kisike Pyaar Mein (Rampur Ka Lakshman)

The magic of declaring one’s first love is beautifully captured in the song, Ghum Hai Kisi Ke Pyaar Mein from Rampur Ka Lakshman. In the romantic number, we get to see Rekha romance Randhir Kapoor with subtlety. Without any dance moves, Rekha manages to hold your attention with her shyness and the look of love for her beau. The song gives us another reason to call Rekha the ultimate expression queen.
