Mumbai: In a recent interview, actress Aruna Irani gave a few reasons for her brother Indra Kumar’s film Super Nani failing at the box office.

Laying the blame squarely on Rekha, she said, “Rekha did not promote the film as was needed. Owing to lack of proper promotional activities, the film flopped. The loss is not only Indra Kumar’s but also Rekha’s.”

Aruna added, “The make up of Rekha in the film was not only surprising but indigestible. This kind of make-up does not suit the storyline at all. This is the first time I feel Rekha has failed to be in a character. I remember Rekha had played Arun Govil’s mother in Judaai. Had she taken a touch of that character, it would have suited her role in SN. But at that point of time, she was young and she took pride in showcasing her talent. Now that she has grown old she does not want to show her real age.”

Talking about Rekha’s visit to Kapil Sharma’s reality show and Bigg Boss, Aruna adds, “On these platforms Rekha promoted herself and not the film SN. She kept on showcasing her singing talent and pretended to showcase 0 her yesteryear romance.”

Aruna also says, “It is wrong on any actor’s part to feel that he or she is the superstar. In fact, senior actors need to make a pleasant atmosphere on the sets. But if you do not behave positively then aap badnam ho jate ho Super Nani mein badnam kaun hua? Rekha.”

About every newcomer wanting to work with Amitabh Bachchan, Aruna said, “He is a great personality to work with. He works in sync with the director.”

Aruna, who was cast opposite Amitabh in Bombay to Goa, added, “He was very humble then and he is the same now. He is a man who respects every woman all actors are not born like him.”
