BINDU

Bindu is a popular Indian actress popular during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Bindu was born on January 17 1951, to a film producer Nanubhai Desai at small village(Hanuman Bhagda) of Valsad,Gujarat. Bindu's road to success was not an easy one. With her father's demise at the young age of 13 and being the eldest daughter, the burden of earning a daily meal fell on her young, frail shoulders. Bindu was beautiful, busty and fair-skinned, sex symbol of the Hindi film industry. In Anpadh (1962), Bindu played a young college graduate. There's no way a 11-year old could have played that role. That places her birth date in dispute. Bindu actually announced her arrival on the scene as a vamp. Bindu married a Gujarati Champaklal Zaveri. Later she divorced him.

Bindu's beginning is from Kati Patang which followed by Ittefaaq (1969) and Imtihaan (1974), with her mesmerizing performances as a seductress in Imtihaan and as a nymphomaniac in Hawas (1974), left audiences asking for more. With a string of hits behind her, she successfully managed to break out of the myth that married actresses usually do not go to become sex symbols, especially in the Hindi film industry.


Bindu acting ability was seen in the films like Hrishikesh Mukherjee's films Ar
jun Pandit and Abhimaan 1973, where she won raves for playing a very sympathetic character. These roles proved Bindu a lot more than just a sex symbol in the Hindi Film Industry. She also acted in Chaitali. She proved to be just as convincing as the crippled woman in Chaitali and as the deglamourised role of wife to Ashok Kumar, in Arjun Pandit.

The sexy and hot actress bindu being 5'6" tall, was never offered roles as the leading lady. Inspite of having extremely photogenic, blessed with a flawless complexion and sharp features, this lady could not get the deserving roles. It can be so because of her marriage. Bindu was a stunning beauty in her times and looks great without the makeup also. With her voluptuous figure, great looks, stunning beauty, she could have given all the leading actresses of those time a run for their money. But unfortunately it could not.


An impending pregnancy, followed by an unfortunate miscarriage, brought about a lull in her career. And today she is sometimes seen in the roles of cynical bua, chachi, mausi. She could not stay long away from the screen and seen in the films like Hero, Biwi Ho To Aisi and Kishen Kanhaiya and with many other such movies. Bindu is leading a low-profile life and makes fewer on-screen appearances, like the one in Shola Aur Shabnam which brought to the forefront the comic trait to her as an actress. She followed this with her light performance as the tip-top chachi in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Main Hoon Na.
