Rekha Parveen

  1. Shabana Azmi, Doosri Dulhan, India, 1983.    Bollywood’s eventual Queen Mother worked for months on the script with Lekh Tandon before calmly announcing she was not available for six months.  Furious, the director started hunting around for a substitute – Rekha Parveen or Smita Patil? Now Azmi was furious with him for not solving their “misunderstanding” – and went to work as The Other Woman, not The Wronged Wife, as per usual. Co-stars included Victor Banerjee (credited as Victor Bannerjee), who made his celebrated  David Lean film, Passage to India, that year.
