Jaddanbai broke new grounds as a personality, who entered cinema during its early stages. She was a multi-faceted personality ; she was an actress, music composer, singer as well as a producer. Renowned actress Nargis is the daughter of Jaddanbai.
 
Born on 1892, Jaddanbai hails from a Muslim family. After the death of her father at her very young age of 5, Jaddanbai shifted to city and ventured into singing. Initially she struggled, owing to her inadequacy in proper training. Eventually she got herself associated with Bhayya Saheb Ganpat and enrolled herself as his student. Due to the death of Ganpat, Jaddanbai imbibed complete music skills from Ustad Moinuddin Khan. The music of Jaddanbai became famous. Recording Ghazals alongside Columbia Gramaphone Company, she also got herself involved in music gatherings. Various rulers approached her for her music. She also had a stint with several radio stations by singing Ghazals and songs. The 1933 flick Raja Gopichand was the debut film of Jaddanbai. Here, she enacted the role of a mother. A Lahore based company approached Jaddanbai for this film. Jaddanbai also got associated with a Karachi based venture for the film Insan Ya Shaitan. Sangeet Films is the production venture of Jaddanbai. The 1935 flick, Talashe Haq saw her donning the role of both actor and a music composer. Jaddanbai was instrumental in making Nargis a child artist. Jaddanbai not only acted in the 1936 flick Madam Fashion, she also composed music for it. Jaddanbai was married three times in her life. 

At one juncture film production was very pricey and Jaddanbai eventually suffered. Here, then, she stopped the studies of Nargis and made her to act in Mehboob Khan’s 1938 flick Taqdeer. This film emerged successful and the family’s wealth was recovered. Jaddanbai was the pioneer in directing, acting and composing music for Indian films by a woman. She was a woman of determination and persistence during the stages of cultural transition.
Indrani Mukherjee Hindi Actress

Indrani Mukherjee

Indrani Mukherjee appeared in Hindi cinema during the 60s and 70s. She made memorable performances in film that include Usne Kaha Tha, Parvarish, Aakhri Khat, Des Pardes and Dharam Veer. She also acted in Marathi films, including Apradh. Her role in Aakhri Khat, opposite Rajesh Khanna, is lovingly remembered, even nowadays. Indrani had tasted success in a beauty competition during the year 1959. Then it was her mother who was instrumental in making her an actress;she introduced her to Bimal Roy. Indrani was given a screen test, and Indrani, as determined as she is, cried naturally in a scene for what she was asked to. The result was heartening; she cleared the test. This is how she got a significant role in Usne Kaha Tha. The film had Sunil Dutt and Nanda, playing the lead roles. Later, she acted in big films like Dharmaputra and Haqueeqat. The director of Haqeeqat, Chetan Anand, made her the lead actress of his film Akhri Raat (1966). Rajesh Khanna played the male lead in the film. The film was widely appreciated critically, and represented India at the Academy Awards. The next 10 years saw Indrani Mukherjee as a character artiste and she acted in many films during that period. Hailing from Ahmedabad, Mukherjee worked in radio plays in Hindi at All India Radio. Indrani once stated that this experience would be an advantage to her in films. Indrani’s works in the films Mere Laal, Heer Ranjha, Dharam Veer Parvarish were noted. Her stint with Marathi and Bhojpuri movies include, Laage Nahi Chhute Ram and Apradh. Mukherjee bid adieu to Hindi cinema during 1980s. She was wedded to Mr. Kishanlal Khanna and shifted to Nashik during 1992. It is indeed a loss to Hindi cinema to lose such a wonderful actress, that too at the peak of her career.
