Rekha was a famous actress in the 80s who acted with Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan in the movie 'Punnagai Mannan', directed by the late K. Balachander.

After her marriage, Rekha took a short break before making a comeback as Bhumika's mother in Roja Kootam. While doing films, the actress also joined TV shows and most recently took part in the famous cooking reality show 'Cooku with Comali'.

In 1996, Rekha married a seafood exporter George Harris and the couple has a 22-year-old daughter named Anusha. Anusha is currently pursuing her studies in the US and briefly made her TV appearance to send off her mother into the Bigg Boss Tamil Season 4 house.

Back in 2018, many speculated that Rekha's daughter will make a film debut, following the footsteps of her mother. However, Rekha denied it saying that Anusha needs to focus on her higher studies.

“There are false statements in the media of my daughter preparing herself to act in films with leading actors. I would like to make it very clear that she is interested in higher studies and she will soon be pursuing it,” she said in a press release.

“She is definitely not going to act in any films. So please keep a full stop to all the rumours.”

We wonder if her experience forced to kiss Kamal Haasan on-screen when she first entered the industry convinced her not never allow Anusha to pursue acting.
