Remembering Parveen Babi, one of the most stylish and beautiful actresses of Hindi cinema, on her 70th birth anniversary today.
Modern, elegant and divinely glamorous, Parveen Babi captivated cinegoers with her mystic beauty in the ’70s and ’80s. She was very different from the ‘herd’ of actresses and her uniqueness was the main element with which she ruled more than a million hearts.
Unlike the majority of Bollywood actresses, Parveen Babi created her niche in the film industry with her not so quintessential Indian cinema avatar. Where many actresses were seen playing the perfect heroine material maintaining a coy image on the screen as well as off screen, Parveen defied all the norms of Hindi cinema and was seen playing the bold and the beautiful.
The most glamorous and beautiful actress of all time, Parveen Babi died a lonely painful death after years of isolation.
May her soul rest in eternal peace.
