Today is Actor Dimple Kapadia’s 62nd birthday. She got a launch by Raj Kapoor at 16 years of age in Bobby (1973). Post the release of this movie, she married late Actor Rajesh Khanna and took retirement from movies. However, the retirement turned out to be just a sabbatical and she was again seen in Saagar (1985). She bagged Filmfare Best Actress Award for both her movies. Thus, she was among the female lead actors of the 1980s. At that time, in most of her movies, she was stereotyped as a sex symbol. But, she wanted to steer clear of that image and she took on serious roles across genres, to receive accolades and awards. She is still active in the field shifting to supporting roles in various movies.
