She’s one of the best actresses Indian cinema has ever seen. Born and brought up in Mumbai, this actress is also a very fine dancer and launched her dance academy recently. She’s a trained classical dancer, as well. She’s one of the very few actresses to receive as much critical acclaim as public admiration. She has worked with the who’s who of the industry, including the three Khans.
Many of her movies went on to become blockbuster hits and one particular movie broke all records then, to become the highest grossing Bollywood film in Indian cinema. She’s well past her prime now, and is married, with two children. Post marriage, she quit movies to look after her children. She tried her luck with a comeback film which did not do well on the box-office.
More recently, she was seen on the silver screen in a reality show. She holds the record of highest nominations in the best actress category of Filmfare awards. However, the jewel in her crown is the Padma Shri award which is India’s fourth highest civilian award.
Can you guess who she is?
