Priyanka pays tribute to Rekha at IIFAJune 10th, 2012 - 3:33 am ICT by IANS
Singapore, June 10 (IANS) Actress Priyanka Chopra paid a heartwarming and thrilling tribute to yesteryear actress Rekha at the 13th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards Saturday by dancing to some of her popular songs.
Priyanka’s performance came ahead of the special honour conferred to Rekha for outstanding achievement in Indian cinema at the ceremony, organised by Wizcraft International Entertainment.
She started off with a remixed version of “In aakhon ki masti ke” from “Umrao Jaan”
and went on to groove on songs like “Salaam-e-Ishq meri jaan”, “Pyar do pyaar lo” and “Pardesiya”.
However, her performance rose to a different level when she was joined by Rekha herself. Posing like Dharmendra, Priyanka was seen getting into naughty antics with the veteran actress while performing on “Rafta rafta”.
After receiving the special award, Rekha, known for her films like “Khoobsurat” and “Silsila”, said: “I would like to dedicate this award to my producers who have inspired me and the young actors of our industry like Ranbir Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra, who are super talented. I am proud that I continue to be a part of film fraternity.”
