Rekha's quotes

  • When asked about the doctors that say they did plastic surgeries on her: "I wish I could meet all those surgeons. Every once in a while, some doctor claims to have done some operation on me."
  • I'm a very shy person. Unlike what has been insinuated, it's not a strategy to retain my aura. I'm not trying to live up to any mystery woman image.
  • Now people might think that I am not married and I have no children, the conventional lifestyle you know, but I see it this way: as long as you are alive, you have a chance to have a future. At least there is hope.
  • I devoted thirty-one years of my life to this industry and in turn this industry has given me everything that I can be proud of - name, fame and the perks that go with stardom.
  • Well loneliness is still a part of me, but being alone is not necessarily being lonely.
  • Sometimes I really wish my life were as exciting as people think it is. Let me also add that my private life is mine alone. I don't want to bare it for discussion and dissection. Because my life can be misunderstood and misinterpreted.
  • Among the models I admire, I find Aishwarya is the best. I disagree with the media that she is 'plastic'. I find her very expressive.
  • I don't care much for success - it's an alien word to me. I don't believe in success, I don't believe in achievements so to speak. I just believe in relishing every moment of my life. That's enough for me.
  • (July 2006, about Hrithik Roshan): Hrithik epitomizes everything precious in a man, be it as a son, lover or as a husband. This kid is a complete human being.
  • About Aishwarya Rai: "I think she has got a very raw deal. She's our treasure but she's neither here nor there, with one foot in Hollywood. She has not had anything great since Devdas (2002). I will fight for her like a tigress if need be." (October 2006)
  • "I don't feel the pinch, you know, or the sting. It's gone. I'm healed now. I'm not bitter anymore." (October 2006)
  • "I was never a kind of person who voiced my impressions or my feelings. I never told anybody what I feel. I was very shy, to open my mouth when there are men around." (October 2006)
  • "I didn't know what the word father mean't. When you think of father, when you mention the word father, it's someone in the church. That's all I know of a father." (October 2006)
  • "I never thought I'd be home alone, with all my sisters married and gone. I never thought I'd not have my own family, my own children." (Dec 9, 2006)
  • "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 makeup and clothes." (Dec 9, 2006)
  • I've done concerts twice in my life.. in '87 and '97. Maybe this is the year to start planning a concert.. it has to be done right. I don't want to be running all over the place like a headless chicken. (February 2008)
  • The moment you're a star, you're no longer normal. That's a curse you've got to live with. (January 1997)
  • I like shooting after three in the afternoon. I sleep on my face and it tends to get puffy in the mornings. The face actually starts settling after noon and is at its best around six in the evening. (April 1978)
