Actor Geeta Bali’s Death Anniversary


Actor Geeta Bali’s death anniversary fell on January 21. One of the most expressive and spontaneous actors, Geeta Bali was born Harkirtan Kaur in 1930. She debuted in Bollywood with The Cobbler (1942) as a 12-year old child. Her first movie as a lead was Badnaami (1946). By 1950s, she had become a star. She married her Coffee House (1957) co-star, Shammi Kapoor in 1955. Unlike the other Bahus of the Kapoor Khandaan, Geeta Bali continued to act in movies until she died in 1965. Her last movie was Jabse Tumko Dekha Hai (1963). I loved her in her Albela (1951) songs.
