This red saree image from Silsila is so iconic! She sure looked like a saree seductress.
I wished one of them, Rakhi or Amithabh would write a book about their love story! But my feeling is that they both love each other to this date and writing something would be a betrayal of that love.
We will hear about the love story between Rekha and Amitabh soon, I am sure.
Rekha was given Yash Chopra Memorial award, ward and she talked about Yashji and his influence. Pretty touching.
Of course, like always, miss malini spins the title of the blog post around, making it sound like Rekha was talking about Amitabh.. Hate her site because of that and never click on any links. I might meet her sometime soon when she is in Los Angeles and I’ll tell her that.
I’d like to definitely state that he taught me how to love. Not just by watching his films (did) I understand ‘Oh, this is love’, not just by speaking or watching that there is beauty and a very tender emotion, but a feeling that is invisible which every person definitely feels it
I am posting it here because the kinds of sarees that Jaya and Rekha wear in this picture says so much about them and that is remarkable.

Loving this picture – both of them looking gorgeous as ever!
I know, Srivedi’s blouse is a little too busy, and Rekha’s jewlery is over the top, but I don’t care. They both look classy!
See individual pictures after the break. More

You may remember me mentioning, a while back, that women in sarees often appeared in western films during the late 1960’s. This was a kind of visual shorthand to suggest a cosmopolitan or international location or situation. Here’s a good example.
This is a publicity still from the 1969 James Bond film ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. I won’t go into the details of the plot other than to say that the women in the picture are supposed to come from all over the World. Indeed, in the cast listing, on IMDB, most of them are just referred to by their supposed country of origin, The Irish Girl, The Australian Girl etc.
To be honest, most of these women could be from just about anywhere but including The Indian Girl and The Chinese Girl makes the multinational nature of the group more obvious along with the fact that The Indian Girl is, of course, wearing a saree.
For the record, The Indian Girl, also referred to as Zara on the cast listing, was played by Zaheera. This was her first film role but after ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ she appeared in a number of Bollywood films in the 70s and 80s including ‘Saal Solvan Chadya’ (1977) and ‘Naukri’ (1978).

Should I be happy about this? Meh!!
If the question was “what is your go to dress” or “what is your go to wear” and if the saree was 46%, may be I’d feel better.
In any event, these surveys are BS. The demographic is not right, and the sample is not right and sometimes the question is wrong – here all of these problems exist.
But I like the poster! Pretty cool.
