It was not only Rekha’s sartorial pick that stole the limelight. The Silsila star also danced with dear friend Hema Malini. An inside video from the party, which is making rounds on the Internet, shows Rekha grooving to the tunes of Kya Khoob Lagti Ho along with Hema Malini. FYI: Kya Khoob Lagti Ho is a hit number from the 1975 film Dharmatma, which featured Hema Malini and Rekha alongside Feroz Khan, who also directed the movie.
