RE­CENTLY a few Bol­ly­wood lead­ing ladies graced the oc­ca­sion of pho­tog­ra­pher Gautam Ra­jad­hyak­sha’s book launch. The book, ti­tled Chehere, has cap­tured the beau­ti­ful faces of Bol­ly­wood. At­tend­ing the event were Ka­jol, Rekha, Jaya Bachchan and Hema Malini along­side le­gendary singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

Event or­gan­is­ers en­sured that safety mea­sures to keep Jaya Bachchan and Rekha apart were in place. They sat poles apart. Rekha main­tained her com­po­sure un­til Lata Mangeshkar took the mike and spoke fondly of the diva. It was af­ter Lataji’s gen­er­ous words that other ac­tors in­ter­acted with Rekha.

And then a his­tor­i­cal moment took place: Rekha, on her way out, walked up to Jaya Bachchan and be­gan a con­ver­sa­tion.

Jaya was taken aback, and though un­com­fort­able, she han­dled the sit­u­a­tion with dig­nity and grace. The buzz is that Rekha’s and Jaya’s in­ter­ac­tion be­came the talk of event.
