Veteran actress Rekha says the Yash Raj taught her the meaning of love through his work at the Yash Chopra Memorial Award.
Rekha was honoured with the Yash Chopra Memorial Award on Monday evening in Mumbai for her contribution to the film industry.

“He taught me how to love. Not only through his film I understood ‘Oh this is love’, not only it’s beautiful while talking… it’s a feeling, which cannot be seen but everyone feels. That Yash ji taught me. I became a poetess in his company,” said the actress,
who cut a graceful picture in a golden saree.

Maharashtra Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao also felicitated the veteran actress with a golden wrist band.

Rekha, who worked with Chopra in 1981 romance Silsila, expressed her eternal gratitude to the great filmmaker.

"I take this award not just as a validation but something of a reminder to say that the curtains have not fallen yet. There is still the best to come in the near future. It is reminder to do better than the best, better than ever before. It’s not my last chapter, but best chapter, yet to begin" adds Rekha.  

The Foundation annually honours a distinguished senior film personality for outstanding contribution to film industry with a Gold Medal and a cash prize of Rs 10 lakh.
