Popularly known as the Father of Indian cinema, Phalke directed and produced India’s first full-length feature filmRaja Harishchandra in 1913. Her daughter Mandakini acted in at least two silent films produced and directed by her father – Birth Of Shree Krishna (1918) and Kalia Mardan (1919).

2. Mandakini – Real name Yasmeen Joseph, Mandakini is a former Bollywood actress who is best remembered for her role in the 1985 movie Ram Teri Ganga Maili. Her physical assets were exploited to the full in this film which had caused quite a stir, especially because of the two scenes in it: one in which Mandakini was shown bathing under a waterfall wearing only a flimsy white saree through which her breasts and nipples were clearly visible, and another in which she was shown breast-feeding a child. Mandakini acted in a few more films, such as Dance Dance with Mithun Chakraborty, Kahan Hai Qanoon with Aditya Pancholi and Pyaar Karke Dekho with Govinda, but never recreated the success of her first movie
