They had arrived here Thursday.

Rekha is known for her songs like "Namak ishq ka" from the movie "Omkara", "Sasural genda phool" from "Delhi-6", "Raat ke dhaai baje" from "Kaminey". Recently she had the country dancing to the beats of "Ghaghra" featuring actors Madhuri Dixit-Ranbir Kapoor from the 2013 box office hit "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".

She also won the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for the song "Badi dheere jali" from the movie "Ishqiya" in 2010.
