“I was happy as I was getting all the importance and attention. My sisters were very happy too, my mother was very happy. We could buy all the cars and the house. And what’s more, my school friends were really envious because when I would say to them who knows maybe I will be a star tomorrow, and they would say, ‘achha, apni shaqal dekhi hai aaine mein? (Really, have you seen your face in the mirror?)’ and they didn’t know where to look (after my first film was a hit) as they said, ‘Bhanu’s made it after all,'” Rekha told Simi while referring to her birth name Bhanurekha.

At that point, all I wanted was to be married and to be loved and to spend the rest of my life with somebody who truly truly truly cared for me and have children. Lots and Lots and lots of children. I wonder why I felt like that then. But that’s what she (Bhanurekha) wanted,” she said.
