5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

She is the great-granddaughter of poet Rabindranath Tagore.

She was offered to work in films at the age of 13.

Sharmila was not good at studies. Her attendance was very short, she came to be regarded as a bad influence on her schoolmates and faced a choice of either doing films or studying further

She was the first Indian Actress to appear in a bikini for 1967 movie ‘An Evening in Paris’, which established Sharmila as a sex symbol in Hindi films.

Before being married to Mansoor Ali Khan, Sharmila converted to Islam and changed her name to Begum Ayesha Sultana though she and her family never used that name.

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

I had seen Shashi in Prem Patra. And I was in love with him! Bahut handsome the use. (He was very handsome in it.) All I remember is that he was blind in the film. And that, while Sadhana folded saris in one scene, Shashi sat in a chair looking gorgeous.

Heroines (then) couldn`t be bad, so Helen had all the fun... heroine`s life wasn`t all that exciting... today`s heroines have a much better chance

During our times it was nothing better than a good cry. We had to all look helpless... so, I think these people (heroines today) are having much more fun.

So many scripts are written for elderly male actors; these things are not happening for female actors. The girls have to be very young and the man can carry on forever,

I try to enjoy every moment of the time I have. I never looked back on my life earlier.

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

Yeh dimaag hum mein behka sakta hai ... par mann, mann kabhi dhokha nahi deta

Log tumhe is liye pyar nahi karte hai kyun ki tum special ho ... balki tum special ho kyun ki duniya mein kuch log tumse beintehaa pyar karte hai ... sometimes despite the way you are

Ladki ko maane Lakshmi, phir bhi ladka hi laage pyara ... ek ladke ki khatir, pehda kardi ladki gyarah

Apne bachchon ke khatir kabhi na kabhi har maa ko rona padta hai ... koi aasoon bahakar roti hai aur koi aasoon peekar

Dharm wohi hai joh matti se janam leta hai ... dharm wohi hai joh tumhari buddhi se janam leta hai ... dharm wohi hai joh tumhare dil, tumhare mann ko sachcha lagta hai ... dharm wohi hai joh tumhari aatma ko sachcha lagta hai

CONTROVERSIES:

It was in 1967 when Bollywood was about to witness something it had never seen. When Sharmila Tagore walked into the studio of photographer Dhiraj Chawda, he asked her what was she going to wear for the shoot and Sharmila Tagore just took out something from her purse. What resulted? Sharmila Tagore was the first-ever Indian actress to pose in a bikini for a magazine cover. The pictures created a stir when the issue hit the stands on August 19, 1966. The issue even raised questions in the Parliament.
