As seen in the above picture, Rekha’s house has a unique design. The umbrella-shaped structure is one of the striking features of her home. If you look at this structure you also get reminded of a similar architectural theme from one of Rekha’s highly-rated movies Umrao Jaan (1981). This white and blue-themed structure gives a traditional touch to this modern bungalow. The house is surrounded by plants both inside and outside. The flowers give a vibrant look and complement the white walls of the house.
