Veteran actress Rekha gifted singer Neha Kakkar a gorgeous Kanjivaram saree once they met on the set of the singing reality show “Indian Idol 12” recently.
The actress said a saree was the “most beautiful attire” someone could wear, which is why she decided to present the newly-married singer with a saree. “It’s always said whenever you meet someone newly-wed you ought to pour them together with your blessings. i think a saree is one among the foremost beautiful attire someone can don. So, i made a decision to gift Neha a saree only,” she said.
Neha Kakkar was deeply touched by the gift and said that the saree will always be special for her.
“This saree is a blessing which I even have received from Rekha ma’am and this will always be very special to me. Everyone has been in awe of Rekha ma’am, and that i am one meeting her. Receiving a present from her is so special. I can’t describe in words how happy i’m,” she said.
Neha tied the knot with musician Rohanpreet Singh last October in an elaborate wedding.
The atmosphere on the show turned light when Rekha joked about not being invited to Neha’s wedding.
“I have met Rohan earlier then also you didn’t invite me to your wedding”. To which Neha replied: “If I knew you know me, i might have definitely invited you at my wedding.”
Earlier last week, actress Neetu Kapoor presented Neha a ‘Shagun Envelope’. Neetu had said that this gift is from her and her late husband Rishi Kapoor. it’s a practice in India that once you meet someone for the first time after their marriage, you give them an omen (gift).
