  3. RIP. Another case of starting as the lead and ending up as a supporting actress. She has acted with Kishore Kumar in a lot of movies

    The death of yesteryears’ popular dancer-actress Kumkm who shone and the disappeared, has saddened matinee idol Dharmendra. When I rang Dharamji at his farm far away from the maddening crowds of Mumbai Dharamji turned emotional. “Kumkum was first heroine! She agreed to co-star with me in my first film Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere in 1960, although she had already done many big films like Naya Daur, Mr Mrs 55, Mother India and Pyaasa before me.”


  5. Sad to hear this…
