Mala Sinha – Memories

By |January 22nd, 2012|

My parents christened me Alda Sinha. Everybody in school called me Dalda Sinha. How I hated my name. Dad and mum never called me Alda though. To them, I was always their little ‘Baby’. Soon, the entire school was calling me ‘Baby Sinha’ too. […]

Shammi Kapoor on Madhubala

By |January 8th, 2012|

Shammi Kapoor was a tall, lanky, thin young man (“I had no shadow”), twenty-one-year-old and on the threshold of a career in films. A stint in the theatre had given him confidence, even a slightly superior attitude to “these film people”. He was at […]

Bina Rai – Interview

By |January 7th, 2012|

The years have treated her kindly. At the age of 64, Bina Rai stands erect. Dressed in a crisp silk saree, her snowy hair neatly tied at the nape of her neck, she evokes memories of the heroine who sang Jo waada kiya woh […]

Zaherra – Interview

By |January 3rd, 2012|

She is a curious hybrid— a “Punjabi Rajput Muslim” from the Jhelum district of West Punjab. Though her films have often received short shrift at the box office, Zaherra still has a ragbag of Muslim socials and com­mercial films like “Talaq” “Aahuti” and “Sindbad’ […]
