It was announced today that Bollywood legend Rekha will perform again for a live audience after a gap of almost 20 years. Shocked? We were too!
Rekha is all set to perform on stage after 20 years at the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) event to be held in Bangkok. At the press conference of IIFA last evening, actor Varun Dhawan made the announcement and said it will be the ‘highlight’ of the ceremony, reports PTI. “For me, it is going to be such a big highlight to see her (Rekha) perform live. I know a little bit of her act and to see that live is going to be a huge thing,” Dhawan said as he invited Rekha on stage, according to HT.
Asked which songs she would be performing on, the veteran actor said, “I have a second name- mystery. If I tell you now, then what’s the point?” Apart from Rekha’s special act, IIFA will witness performances by several Bollywood stars including Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Iulia Vantur, Varun Dhawan and Ayushmann Khurrana. The main ceremony will be hosted by Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh, PTI said.
The 19th edition of NEXA IIFA awards will be held at Siam Niramit Theatre, Bangkok, from June 22 to 24. Excited? We are too!
