Pics: Rekha makes fun of Aamir’s height at ‘Dangal’ screening


Aamir Khan held a special pre-release screening of his film ‘Dangal’ for his industry colleagues last night, ahead of its release today. It was attended by Ranbir Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and her dad Shatrughan Sinha, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani and others. But it was veteran actress Rekha who grabbed the most attention with her pose with the ‘3 Idiots’ actor.

The gorgeous diva usually doesn’t attend many screenings, but marked her presence for Aamir’s movie. She ditched her traditional Kanjivaram sarees and opted for a pair of black pants and a white jacket, teamed with boots and a woollen cap. She appeared uber cool in her western look.

Rekha seemed to be in a fun mood as she indulged in chit-chat with Aamir, and did something naughty. The actor at about 5.5 feet in height, is considered a bit petite, while Rekha stands tall at about 5.7 feet, and add to that her heels. As they posed for the shutterbugs, Rekha bent her knees to match Aamir’s height.

Now, that must have been embarrassing for Mr Perfectionist, but he was sporting and held the senior actress to get her back to stand tall on her feet.

Of course, a person’s height has very less to do with one’s success, and Aamir is one of the most successful actors of the industry. His 2014 blockbuster ‘PK’ is still the highest grossing Bollywood film of all time, and he continues to amaze with his wonderful films.

‘Dangal’ released today, but the reviews were out two days ago, and film critics and others who have seen it, were full of praise for the sports biopic. Even Salman Khan has praised Aamir’s work with a unique tweet writing, “My Family saw #Dangal today evening and thought it was a much better film than #Sultan. Love u personally Aamir but hate u professionally!”
