Madhubala, born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi, was a highly acclaimed Indian actress of 1940s-1950s era. She was considered as the most beautiful actress of her time and was also known as “The Venus of Indian Cinema” and “The Beauty with Tragedy”.
She was born on 14 February ,1933, in Delhi. She was 9-year-old, when she started paying visits to the Bombay Film studios in search of work.
Madhubala got her first break in Badal (1942) as a child artist and then went on to play the lead at the age of 14.
But her performance in Mughal-e-Azam is widely regarded as a path-breaking, which later solidified her position in the industry as one of the most-talented actress. The film went on to hold an unbreakable grossing record for 15 years.
Madhubala was the first Indian woman to reach Hollywood, an American magazine published a picture of the actress and titled it,”The Biggest Star in the World – and she’s not in Beverly Hills.”
