Madhubala

Madhubala is regarded as the Venus of Indian cinema. She is an epitome of beauty. Her phenomenal beauty, natural grace, talent and sensuality are till unexplainable. Though her fascinating persona that portrayed all the joie de vivre character was truly short-lived, she caught the attention of Hollywood and even Oscar-award winning filmmaker Frank Capra, who came to Bombay to meet her, but she did not even meet him at all. Her mystique and charisma attracted the West, and her story appeared in An American magazine terming her one of the top actress in the world. Madhubala is our only answer to Hollywood’s Marylin Monroe. It is sad that few films were only successful in the box-office while her contemporary Meena Kumari’s film created more wonder in the box office. She came to the film world at an age of nine only to support her family. She was born fifth as Mumtaz Jehan in a family of 13 members, and when her father lost his job, she along with his father used to knock at every studio in Bombay to get a break in film. Her family faced a lot of hardships and even Madhubala’s three sisters, and two brothers died at the age of five and six. Hence, she had no other option but eventually become an actress. Her father Ataullah Khan was an instrumental in Madhubala’s career and kept strict control over her. He even imposed 7 pm deadline for the actress to return home after shooting. Her father was also seen breaking a relationship with Dilip Kumar. According to renowned Muslim clergy, she was destined to become rich, but died at a very young. She was totally under coma and bed-ridden for many years and died at an age of 36. Madhubala made her debut as a child artist and after the success of Mahal with Ashok Kumar, she became the most-sought after actress in Hindi cinema. Kamal Amrohi is a powerful name in Indian cinema for his excellent effort as director-writer for the classic ‘Mahal’. The film gave super stardom to Madhubala and even Lata Mangeshkar (song "Aayega Aane Waala"). She could convincingly play a comedy, romantic and tragedy role with ease. She acted with all leading top actors like Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. Her initial releases were flops but ‘Mahal’ was a turning point in her career. This film ran for one year in a cinema house in Kolkata and was equally success in another territory including Pakistan. It is said Dilip Kumar fell in love with her on sets of their film ‘Tarana’ and even openly declared love for her in an open courtroom, but her father’s disapproval irked Dilip so much that he went to say that he would love Madhubala till she dies. Although Madhubala and Dilip Kumar acted in an epic movie ‘ Mughal-E-Azam’ but they did not speak with each other on the set and had never said ‘hello’ to each other. As a professional star, they acted together, and the film became hit because audiences were curious to see Dilip Kumar and Madhubala in the same frame even in personal life too. After this film, Dilip Kumar and Madhubala never appeared together. She is notable for her iconic performances in films like ‘Amar’, ‘Mr & Mrs. 55’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Howrah Bridge’, and ‘Barsaat Ki Ek Raat’. After Dilip Kumar had made an exit from her personal life, she had a romance with Kishore Kumar, and they married, but yet she had led an unhappy life. This beauty was born in Delhi on February 14, 1933, Delhi, and had died on February 23, 1969.
