Rekha is like fine wine, she only gets better with each passing day. The evergreen actress is ready to set the stage on fire at the upcoming 19th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards.

Fans are super-excited to watch Rekha perform on stage after 21 years. The last time she did that was at an awards show in 1997, where she danced to Salaam-e-Ishq from Muqaddar Ka Sikander and Dil Cheez Kya Hai from Umrao Jaan.

The 63-year-old actress wants to ensure that everything goes perfectly, and personally checked that her outfits were in order. A source revealed to a leading publication, “Rekha ji wanted to make sure that her outfits were in order. This is the first time Manish Malhotra is designing an outfit for her to perform in. Rekha ji will be performing age-appropriate dances, and she wants the clothes to complement the performance.”

At the press conference, Rekha was asked which songs she would be performing on. However, she chose to remain tight-lipped and said, “I have a second name – mystery. If I tell you now, then what’s the point?”

Apart from Rekha, IIFA 2018 is expected to have power-packed performances by Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Iulia Vantur, Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Bobby Deol. Shahid Kapoor was also supposed to perform at the awards night, but had to pull out at the last minute due to a back injury.

The IIFA Awards will take place in Bangkok this year, and the main ceremony will be hosted by Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh.
