Waheeda Rehman who was in the headlines
for saying her private life is nobody's business, now says, she is
not okay if a film is made on her life.
Veteran actress Waheeda Rehman, who recently unveiled Nasreen Munni Kabir's book "Conversations with Waheeda Rehman", says she is "not okay" if a film is made on her life.
The 76-year-old actress has featured in several Bollywood classics like Solvaa Saal, Pyasa, Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Bees Saal Baad and Guide, and she has regaled audiences with her graceful dancing skills over the years.
Biopics are a new trend and when asked about if she was ok about it, she said, "I am (over) 75. Now it's a long journey...it has to be made in four parts. But personally, I am not okay with it. I am not fine with it and there is no reason (for it) as such."
In the last decade itself, the actress featured in movies like Rang De Basanti and Delhi-6. Now she is happy away from the screen.
"How much to work? We should give a chance to others as well. I don't miss anything...I am happy with myself. I travel a lot, read a lot, meet my friends, like to cook occasionally. I am satisfied with my life," said the veteran actress in an interaction at Sofitel, Mumbai.
She launched "Conversations with Waheeda Rehman", a longish interview exploring several aspects of her life and career, on Saturday.
