Parveen Babi, the Bollywood diva who ruled the movies in the 70’s & 80’s was no less than a female megastar. Born on April 4, 1949, in Junagarh, Gujrat, she began her modelling career in 1972. She has the true ability to enchant millions of viewers but had no one by her side when she truly needed some support. From the way she started her career & the bold way of choosing the characters, she was truly a trendsetter.


In her short career span, she has done various films and attained huge success. She was given the credit to redefine the image of Bollywood actress at that time. She was also the first Indian who appeared on the cover of TIME magazine. As much as everyone remembers the success of this wonderful diva, we also remember her struggles with mental health. It is claimed that she was under severe depression and the hallucination got worse. She died a lonely death on January 20, 2005, and her body was found three days later.
