When Rekha once uttered the iconic Kaun Banega Crorepati speech on another show, she became noticeably embarrassed. The actor asked the producers to nix the mistake after it made everyone around her laugh. Others also made fun of her, and some of her fans even said she used the wrong phrase on purpose.
When Rekha appeared in the second season of the dance-based reality competition series Super Dancer on Sony TV in 2017, the incident took place. Rekha’s fan page recently posted a video of one of her guest appearances, in which the intro is given, and judges Shilpa Shetty, Anurag Basu, and Geeta Kapoor, among others, start laughing.
When host Rithvik Dhanjani was struck by Rekha’s familiarity with the programme, he joked that she would soon begin introducing the programme and its sponsors. Rekha replied, “No, I shall straight say ‘aadar, abhaar, abhinandan’,” but she cut herself off in the middle of her sentence. Amitabh Bachchan always starts with “Aadar aadab abhinandan aabhar” when he welcomes people to KBC.
Rekha seemed mortified when she remarked, “Ye wo show nahi hai (It’s not that show)?” after realising she had accidentally stated the KBC slogan rather than Super Dancer 2’s. She echoed Rithvik’s statement that it’s a different show, but insisted that the channel was the same. Everyone started laughing as Rekha scratched her head and bit her tongue as she apologised. Blushing, Rekha apologised again and asked that that part be cut out of the promo. However, Rithvik’s co-host Paritosh insisted that it should now be added.
Regarding Rekha’s error, a fan added laughing emojis and commented, “She constantly does this..deliberately.” Another person wrote: “Such a vivacious human being she is.” Another person referred to her as “savage,” while a third said, “That’s why she is my favourite.”
After collaborating for the first time in Do Anjaane, Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan acted opposite one another in a number of movies (1976–1981). Some other well-known movies in which they appear together are Alaap, Khoon Pasina, Ganga Ki Saugandh, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Suhaag, and Silsila.
