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.

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.
