Yesterday, Indian actor Sadhana passed away in Mumbai at the age of 74. The hugely popular leading lady of ’60s and ’70s Bollywood films died on Christmas Day in a Mumbai hospital. Her first role was that of chorus girl in the 1955 film Shree 420.
Among her many hits included Love in Simla, Parakh, Hum Dono, Waqt, and Woh Kaun Thi.
She is also remembered for her iconic haircut — the fringe — which, across Indian hair salons, is still called the “Sadhana cut”.
Watch her here in the smash-hit Jhumka Gira Re from Mera Saya:
