Miscellaneous Info – Never in her wildest dreams had Swam Kumari Dewan, now known as Poonam, dreamt of embracing a film career. Her father, a high-ranking officer in the Government of India, was convinced that the Indian films were no films. The children in the family were seldom allowed to see them. One bitterly cold night, while musing in a Delhi restaurant over the vast properties her family had lost in N.W.F.P. after partition, Swam was surprised by a stranger who introduced herself as Producer- Director Protimadas Gupta. Miss Gupta suggested that Swam take to the films. She graciously refused that offer but it lingered in her mind and excited her interest. She then came over to Bombay, met producer-director Jagirdar and was signed up by him for a role in “Bhairavi”. A part in “Farar” followed. Her success appears assured. Swam was born in Dera Ismail Khan and lived for many years in Srinagar. She likes cooking and is a good cook. She plays tennis, her favorite colours are red and black and she likes to display her silver Jewellery from Kashmir.
