When Waheeda Rehman got the horoscope made, luck shone, the story is surprising
Mumbai: Waheeda Rehman, the famous actress of Hindi cinema, may have turned 85 years old, but her grace has not diminished. Born on 3 February 1938 in Chengalpattu, Tamil Nadu, Waheeda won the hearts of the audience with her beautiful performances in the 50-60s. Waheeda’s film ‘Guide’ with Dev Anand is a memorable film. Beautiful Waheeda, proficient in acting and dance, used to make millions of people crazy whenever she came on the screen. Such an actress had to face rejection in her life.
Waheeda Rehman is an amazing dancer, but she had to struggle a lot to learn dance. Waheeda revealed about her dance skills in a reality show that she had the urge to learn dance since childhood, since she was a Muslim, so Guru ji had refused to teach Bharatnatyam.
Waheeda didn’t give up trying even after being rejected
Waheeda Rehman had told on the show that ‘Guru ji had refused to teach dance but I was determined to learn. I kept sending my friend to recommend him. One day he asked him to bring my horoscope, but they do not make horoscopes here. Then he asked for my date of birth and got the horoscope made himself. When he saw my horoscope, he said with surprise that this girl will be my last and best student. In this way, he started teaching dance to Waheeda.
Horoscope proved correct
Guru ji’s words proved right, Waheeda proved to be his best student. Waheeda had made her acting debut with the Telugu film ‘Rojulu Marayi’ and then stepped into Hindi cinema. Worked in many films but ‘Guide’ proved to be a milestone in his film career.
Story of first meeting with Dev Anand
In an interview given to Twinkle Khanna, Waheeda Rehman told a funny story about the film ‘Guide’ and Dev Anand. Waheeda had told that ‘When I met Dev Anand Sahab for the first time, I said Namaste Dev Sahab and he said, Dev Sahab, who is he? Then told me to just call me Dev’. Waheeda Sharma went to tell Dev Anand’s decent flirt. Twinkle asked how was flirting? Did he say that you are very beautiful? So Waheeda had told that no…she had not said anything like that.
