The beautiful actress of 1960s and 1970s, Mumtaz made her mark with the song “Yeh Hai Reshmi Zulphon Ka Andhera” and went on to do few more such evergreen hits in her career. Initially kicking off her career with dozens of small-budget films, she eventually got recognition with Mere Sanam, and went on to give few more hits like Tere Mere Sapne and Khilona. She looked best in Do Raaste, Khilona, Bhramachari, Roop Tera Mastana, Aap Ki Kasam and Roti.
After marriage, Mumtaz moved to London and stayed away from the movies, until a misguided comeback attempt in 1990 with Aandhiyan. Thereafter, however, the breast cancer survivor has kept away from the limelight. After all, she had walked away from fame and fortune while at the very top of her game with no second thoughts.
