New Delhi: Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has completed two decades in the film industry. To celebrate her success, veteran actress Rekha has penned an emotional letter to Ash in a leading magazine recently.
Rekha began her letter by praising Aishwarya.”A woman like you who is in harmony with her spirit is like a flowing river, never stagnant. She goes where she wants to without pretence; and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.”
“People may forget what you said, they may also forget what you did but they will never forget how you made them feel. You are a living example that courage is the most important of all the virtues because, without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently! Your deep strength and pure energy introduces you even before you speak!”
She also wrote about the hardships that Aishwarya had to endure and the difficult choices that she made in life. Rekha wrote about Aishwarya’s pursuit for a path that was unlike others.
“The worst thing you did was to be present with the present’ with gratitude. You pursued the things you loved doing, and then did them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you! You on your own are enough with nothing to prove to anyone. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.”
Rekha also mentioned Aradhaya in her letter
“You’ve come a long way, baby. Having endured many hurdles, like the phoenix you rise! And I cannot pen down in words how proud I am of that little cool’ moon-faced girl who took my breath away the very instant I first laid my eyes on her.”
“You always gave better than the best to all the roles you were bestowed with but my most cherished character of yours is the role of the complete Amma’ that you are, to the little bundle of pure joy called Aaradhya. Keep loving and spreading your magic. Two decades of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – wow! Love you. Jeete Raho. Rekha Maa.”
