Miscellaneous Info - Chand Usmani hailed from Agra - Uttar Pradesh. She was staying with relatives in Bombay during 1949 when she saw an announcement of the Kardar-Kolynos-Teresa Contest. "Just for the fun of it", she sent in her photograph and was surprised to find herself among the selected contestants. She was even more surprised when she placed second in the finals. She was still in her teens when she played the feminine lead in "Jeevan Jyoti" (1953), directed by Mahesh Kaul. Incidentally, Jeevan Jyoti was also Shammi Kapoor’s first film.


But later all she got was secondary roles and for no discernible reasons. Yet Chand continued to give vivid portrayals whatever the role and continued working till the late 1980s. She also won Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for her role in Pehchan (1970). Chand Usmani died in 1989 after a long illness in Mumbai.She is survived by her son.
