Nanda and Rajesh Khanna made a cute pair in Joroo Ka Ghulam. Dhool ka Phool and Jab Jab Phool Khile were her other famous movies. One of the dreamy and soothing songs ye sama (lata) was picturised on her in Jab Jab Phool khile.
Agreed Sanjana, I always liked Nanda (Blame it on my Ma, its her all time fav). As some of them know here, My father knew Manmohan Desai, and we owned a business close to his office/home in Khetwadi, My dad often tells stories of Nanda coming to meet him at the office very often in the late 70s and early 80′s. From what my father tells me, he truly loved her and wanted to marry her. But her sons and family were dead against it and that was one of the reasons why he committed suicide (I am sure that’s known to all). Just a little Trivia on Nanda from my dad, She used to have a chocolate Brown Fiat and a bright red contessa that she used to come in. Usually came with no make up and her man friday was always with her (it was a women though). And the driver who used to bring her always hung out at my fathers business (restaurant) and said Nanda was very kind and generous during festive seasons to him and his family giving gifts bonuses etc. Will have to talk to dad again with more stories, don’t remember them now.
Now that you mentioned it, I do some resemblance in a striking light. But, I would think the correct term would be “poor man’s Meena Kumari” haha. But yeah, I see what you are saying. My fav of hers is ofcourse Jab Jab Phool Khile and Iteefaq, It was a very complex role and she did it beautifully.
Haha knew it must be a typo-hope u didn’t mind …
But even if it was true— not bad to love a heroine … Lol
Ps– so what happened to desais love story– did u know desai…family friend?
