Remembering Parveen Babi on her Birth Anniversary

Parveen Babi, stunning beauty born on 4th April 1949 in Ahmedabad’s Junagadh, changed the sari clad image of Hindi film heroine into a glamorous woman. Parveen ruled the 70’s and 80’s with her impeccable look and her box office hits.

Though riding on the success professionally, Parveen was not so lucky in her personal life. She had few affairs with her industry colleagues, like- Mahesh Bhatt, Kabir Bedi and Danny Denzongpa. Parveen suffering from schizophrenia during her later days, also accused her co-star of many superhit movies, Amitabh Bachchan of trying to kill her.

On Parveen’s birthday, let’s remember this glam diva through some of her iconic songs, which are still embedded in viewers’ memories-

  1. ‘Jawani Jaaneman’ from ‘Namak Halal’- Song sung by Asha Bhosale and Music by Bappi Lahiri, saw Parveen grooving on the dance floor in shimmery golden body suit in killer heels. The song is a party favourite even now.
