Saira Banu, the divine beauty and gracious free spirit of Bollywood, turns 74 on Thursday. The veteran actor marked her outstanding presence in a male-dominated film industry with her profound talent and peppy attitude. The tenacious actor is known for sticking to her husband, Dilip Kumar, in their convulsive journey of life. The most iconic actor of her time is graced with fey and delicate charm. As the actor turns a year old, let’s reminisce her top six outstanding performances in Bollywood.
The Kashmiri charm, mahogany eyes, and dropdead looks left the audience in complete awe of the actor in her debut in Junglee (1961). Shammi Kapoor starrer Junglee introduced this breath-taking beauty to the glamour world.
Saira Banu garnered much admiration for her movie “Padosan” (1968), as she played leading lady for Sunil Dutt. The movie song “Ek Chatur Naar” still manages to groove everyone on its tune.
The challenging role of a smoking, drinking, miniskirt flaunting Indian girl in Manor Kumar’s ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ (1970) changed the diorama of Bollywood industry.
‘Victoria No 203’ (1972) won the hearts of audience across the nation. The drop-dead gorgeous lady was appreciated and her tantalising beauty slayed the sensual song ‘Thodasa thehro’.
The family comedy film ‘Hera Pheri’ (1976), also starring Amitabh Bachchan, was a superhit at the box office. The role of Sari Banu was very well admired by the audience.
