Manish Malhotra is incharge of making her stage ready
The 63-year-old actor wants her stage comeback to be perfect in every which way and is personally looking into all the details including the outfits. Renowned celebrity designer Manish Malhotra has been roped in to design her clothes. "Rekha ji will be performing age-appropriate dances, and she wants the outfits to complement the performance," a media report stated.
Rekha wants to surprise her fans
When asked about the songs she would be dancing on at the IIFA, she said, "I have a second name - mystery. If I tell you now, then what's the point?" We certainly cannot wait to watch her perform.
