5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

Tanuja was born in a family with a filmy background. Her father was a director and mother of a famous film actress. Also her elder sister Nutan was an established actress.

Tanuja never liked studying but had an immense interest in learning new languages. When she was studying in Switzerland, she used to write letters to her father in the German language.

She had to leave her school at the age of 16 and make a debut with a small role in the film Chhabili along with her elder sister since her family was facing some financial crisis.

Tanuja was never very serious about being on the top as a heroine but always wanted to become a fine artist. Hence she always took a potential role even if it was a supporting one.

Tanuja parted ways with her husband after a ten-year-long marriage as there were fights every day. But she never divorced him so that they can redeem their responsibility as good parents to their children.

Ek aurat ke liye pyar karne mein aur uska izhaar karne mein koi farak nahi hai ... lekin mardon ke liye pyar karna bahut aasaan hai, pyar ka izhaar karna bahut mushkil

Ek aurat ki zindagi mein motor, banglay, dhan, daulat, in sab cheezon ki koi keemat nahi ... usse sirf ek acha pati chahiye joh usse pyar kare ... aur jiske kadamon mein woh apni duniya rakh de

Har subah yeh ek nayi maut marega

Aadmi ke peeche bhaagna, usse khud se door bhagana hai ... usse bhaagne do tumhare peeche

Suhaag ki raat sirf do shareero ka hi nahi ... do dilon ka, do jeevano ka sangam hota hai
