Farah Naaz is a Bollywood actress who made her debut in 1980-90s. She is elder sister of actress Tabu and niece of famous actress
Shabana Azmi. She was the most beautiful actress of her time and after starring in few films she disappeared from the film industry. She was known for her tomboyish nature in many films and unfortunately, her career never got any traction. After a couple of hit movies with almost leading stars of her time, her ill-fated attempt to get married soon resulted in getting her disappeared.
She did manage to show some spark as ‘ J.P Dutta's Yateem’– but followed that up with films like ‘
Naqaab’, ‘Khatarnaak’ and ‘Pati Patni Aur Tawaif’. Judging from her expressionless, wooden performances, she became just an actress who can be touted as the glamorous and beautiful actress with pretty eyes. Although she showcased no great acting skills like Tabu, thankfully, she was still going strong in her career with acting opposite to Jackie, Govinda,
Anil Kapoor, Mithun,
Rishi Kapoor and people were falling in love with her beauty.
In ‘Naseeb Apna Apna’, she played the main role Rishi Kapoor’s Wife – a title that, ironically, suited her perfectly. She also did some scenes for film ‘Ghuda Gawah’ but as the film got delayed in the shooting, she quit the film and the role went to
Shilpa Shirodkar opposite Govinda. She married first Dara Singh’s son
Vindu Dara Singh. She had a son also from this marriage. The couple got divorced later, and she again married a TV actor
Sumeet Saigal. As her films were not success in box office, she made appearances in some TV serials produced by
Himesh Reshammiya (
Amar Prem, Andaz, Ahaa). Later she made her comeback to films with films like ‘
Hulchul’ and ‘
As Farah appeared in small movie roles in Hulchul, it is another case of a moderately successful film star who was misled that she could become a saleable star. Her fans were not certainly after her.
