Veteran actor Rekha will be performing on stage after 20 long years at the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA). During the IIFA press conference last night, actor Varun Dhawan announced that Rekha’s performance will be the “highlight” of the ceremony. As Varun was invited on stage, he said with excitement that, “For me, it is going to be such a big highlight to see her (Rekha) perform live. I know a little bit of her act and to see that live is going to be a huge thing.” When Rekha herself was asked about the songs on which she would be performing on, the veteran actor said, “I have a second name- mystery. If I tell you now, then what’s the point?”

A press meet was organised in Mumbai that was attended by Rekha, Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Shahid Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Iulia Vantur. The actors will also be a part of special performances at the IIFA. Here are a few pictures from last night’s press conference
