Regarding her work, she expressed that her passion for it remains with her regardless of whether she actively participates in filmmaking or not. She cherishes her memories, which allow her to relive what she loves. Rekha believes that when the appropriate time comes, the right project will naturally come her way. She emphasised that her personal life belongs solely to her, but her on-screen persona exists through the perception of others. Consequently, she exercises her choice in deciding where she wants to be and where she does not. She added, "I am so blessed to have earned the right to choose what I love. And to have the luxury to simply say no."
In the same interview, Rekha was asked about the endurance of love when deeply cherished. She responded with a witty remark, stating, "No. Once the relationship is established, it is forever." According to her, the intensity of love may vary, but once established, it remains everlasting. She drew parallels between this perspective on love and her artistic craft, emphasising her innate inclination towards preserving beauty.
Rekha acknowledged her natural talent for acting but attributed her mastery to her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and her ability to approach beauty with a positive mindset. She expressed her continuous sense of being a newcomer in her field and placed trust in those who shared her level of commitment. Rekha concluded, "I trust those who demonstrate commitment as I do."
