    New Delhi (Sputnik): Veteran Bollywood actress Waheeda Rehman has confessed that despite her ripe old age, she wants to try out scuba diving. Celebrating the free-spirited 81-year old actress’ zest for life, netizens expressed their gratitude to her for inspiring them.

    In an interview with former Bollywood town actress and author Twinkle Khanna, Waheeda said the adventurous underwater sport still remains on her bucket list.

    A video clip that Twinkle shared with her five million Twitter followers on Monday showed Waheeda brushing off a surprised Twinkle’s “You want to go scuba diving at 81?” question with a simple “So what!”

    ​Twinkle said she “loves her (Waheeda’s) spirit!”

    The 14-second long video footage has already gathered around 15,000 views.

    People on social media reacted positively to the clip.

    Waheeda was appearing as a guest on a TV chat show, joined by other former Bollywood superstars including Dharmendra and Asha Parekh, sharing anecdotes of their time spent on film sets together during the 1960s and 70s.

    During a live video call on the same show, megastar Amitabh Bachchan talked about how he literally “worshipped” Waheeda back in those days.

    A Padma Bhushan award recipient, Waheeda received recognition for her work in the Hindi movie industry in 1957.
