Bollywood’s Anarkali is no more

07 Dec

Bollywood  lost one of its beautiful ladies. Bina Rai, the popular actress of the black and white era, passed away yesterday due to cardiac arrest.

Bina Rai was a first year student of Arts in the Isabella Theodore College’ of Lucknow in 1950, when she came across an advertisement for a talent contest, she participated in the contest where she won along with the 25,000 rupees in prize money a leading role in Kishore Sahu’s ‘Kali Ghata’ (1951), which became her film debut. Bina Rai stepped onto the screen in spite of strict reservations from her family. It is said that the actress had challenged her parents with a hunger strike and after they gave in to her wishes.

She is best remembered for her roles in Taj Mahal’, ‘Ghoonghat’ and ‘Anarkali’. Interestingly, Bina Rai had won the Filmfare Best Actress Award, for which Madhubala was also nominated for ‘Mughal-e-Azam’.

I am sorry, I could not show the Tajmahal song here. Click the image below  for the song.
