If she is a present day actress then I have no idea. I will guess Mona Singh.

I do not know these kal ki bachchiyaan. My days of identifying Bollywood actresses was over in 1980s when actresses of my age group (Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla) were around.

Anushka Sharma is getting too popular too soon. I hope , for her sake, her feet are grounded.

Your age group? :-)

You trying an Afridi here? :-)

I think we are looking at more like Rati Agnihotri or Anita Raj, rather than Madhuri or Juhi. :-)

I've seen Anushka in Badmaash Company.
I thought she was ok.

She's from Bangalore, so I've got a soft corner for her.

Tina Munim and Dimple are five years older than me. Anita Raj is same age as me. Madhuri Dixit is two years younger to me. Juhi Chawla is five years younger to me. So all these actresses are indeed in my age group.

Out of the above list given by Raja, Anita Raj , Kimi Katkar and Sonu Walia were more of the ' hot ' variety.

Sridevi, Madhuri, Jayaprada, Dimple were established actresses.

Reena Roy is same age as Dimple ? It cannot be. Madhuri Dixit is 1964 born as I read somewhere.

It does appear that I should quote Sridevi and Jayaprada as my contemporary actresses.

I just checked out names that came top of mind.

Btw, a Hollywood mate of Atul could be Julia Roberts 28 October 1967.

Tina Munim is now married to Anil Ambani , ADAG CEO

Poonam Dhillon has joined the BJP.

Mandakini flirted around with underworld gangster and terrorist Dawood Ibrahim for a while and mysteriously disappeared for a decade for so. She is believed to be one of Dawood's harems.

I find it difficult to believe that Mandakini was born in July 1969.
Ram Teri Ganga Maili was released in 1985!!!

Of course, these are wiki entries - and with actors' DOB, who knows!

Another actress of the glorious 1980s Hindi movie scene.

Amrita Singh 9 Feb 1958.
I thought she was younger!
She became famous opp Sunny Deol in Betaab - and that was only 1984 or so. Was she already 26 then?

Amrita "Mard" Singh was also romantically involved with Ravi Shashtri in 1980s. Ravi Shashri is four years younger to Amrita "Mard" Singh.

Felt bad that we were messing up Baba's Australian Open thread.
It was classic CF-style hijack but the poor guy hardly opens threads, so I thought let's at least leave that one intact. :-)
