Bollywood actor Rekha today made a ‘special one-hour appearance’ in the Rajya Sabha after facing criticism for attending only seven sittings since being nominated two years ago.
She came in the House at around 1200 hrs and left at 1300 hrs.
The sight of the 59-year-old Bollywood veteran — draped in cream-coloured saree — had the corridors of Parliament abuzz about the special appearance.
She along with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was slammed for not attending Parliament.
Tendulkar has not attended a single day this year — his last appearance being on December 13, 2013. Rekha last attended the House on February 19, 2014.
Another Bollywood personality Rakhi Sawant was also seen in the Rajya Sabha visitors’ gallery today for some time.
