In 2014, Rekha played the lead role in the film Super Nani with Randhir Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Sharman Joshi. She was last seen in a cameo on the silver screen in 2015's Shamitabh which also co-starred Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan.
This year, Rekha was slated to appear as 'Begum' in Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor with Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif. She was, however, replaced by Tabu. The film opened to tepid reviews.
