The actress had spent a few years of her childhood in the city in the 1940s

Dressed in a chiffon saree and sporting a string of pearls around her neck, noted Hindi actress Waheeda Rehman was a picture of timeless beauty as she walked the corridors of Hawa Mahal in the city on Tuesday. She went down on a nostalgia trip during a private visit to the city. Waheeda had spent a few years of her childhood in the city in the 1940s when her father was posted here and was back after a long gap.

She had studied at St. Joseph’s Convent and later visited her alma mater and went around the corridors remembering her school days.

Waheeda posed for photographs with a few teachers and staff of the school and spoke to them in fluent Telugu. She was accompanied by talk show host and comedian Vinay Pathak who was full of praise for the beautiful Hawa Mahal on the Beach Road. Mayank Kumari Deo, who belongs to the royal family of Jeypore (Odisha), was excited to host the actress at the heritage building that was a favourite summer holiday home of the family.
