Woman’s Day Special – Mumtaz

0

Today’s second post is Woman’s Day Special – Mumtaz, continuing with our series on Bollywood’s iconic female artists. This article is the last of the series. I have not covered many iconic actors for the series, intentionally. This is because I found these artists difficult to be researched due to the absence of material in the internet.

Born Mumtaz Askari, this retired actor began her career as an 11-year old child from Sone Ki Chidiya (1958). Then, she did small roles as a teenager in Stree (1961), Gehra Daag (1963) and Sehra (1963). Though later she got lead roles in Faulad (1963) and Daaku Mangal Singh (1966), these roles type-casted her as a stunt-movie heroine and her career came to a standstill for some time.

It took her performances in supporting roles in Raam Aur Shyam (1967), Brahmachari (1968) and Mere Humdam Mere Dost (1968) for her to come to the mainstream A-grade cinema. Do Raaste (1969) helped her break into the lead roles in A-grade movies and then there was no looking back. Here are some Bollywood songs picturized on her. I hope you like them.
