Shatrughan Sinha calls Rekha old at IIFA awards…
Shotgun Sinha aka Shatrughan Sinha is famous for his wit and outspoken attitude. Also, the actor loves to talk about himself. Shatrughan, who was invited to present the legendary actress Rekha the Lifetime Achievement Award, addressed her as the ‘old, gold, bold and beautiful Rekha’.
Not only this, instead of talking about Rekha he kept talking about himself and his upcoming film Aasman se Aage with Rekha. The story does not end here. Right at the time of presenting the award Shatrughan showed the trailer of his movie. He even invited his wife Poonam and the film’s director on the stage. Poor Rekha just did not understand what to do.
Finally, after receiving the award Rekha said, “I dedicate this award to today’s young actors like Priyanka, Parineeti, Sonakshi and Vidya. This is the beginning of an endless end. I wish I could be half as graceful, half as spontaneous as Zohra Sehgal, achieve as much as her. I think I am half way there.”
Shatrughan Sinha, it seems that you forgot that the Lifetime Achievement Award was for Rekha and not for you!
