Durga Khote, Kanan Devi,Shanta Apte,Renuka Devi,Shobhana Samarth- all these actresses of 1930s and 1940s were women of substance and far too ahead of their times.

Saw her recently in Kala Bazar (1960).
Lovely movie. Waheeda, Dev Anand.

We were having a nice discussion on Anushka Sharma and Amrita Singh - and then Atul comes up with these videos. :-)

And it becomes very quiet here. :-)

We need to tell people that Shobhana Samarth was the grandmother of Kajol, then perhaps people will understand who we are talking about.

In 1930s, Indian literacy rate must have been something like 20 % and women's literacy rate must have been close to 0 %. The Indian actresses of that time that I have mentioned were quite highly educated- even by today's standards.

Yes, the same one, but identifying her with the "Sholay" or "Don" song, when she was towards the end of her career does not even begin to describe her. She has acted in hundreds of wonderful dances beginning from 1950s.

Among South Indian actresses, the trend was to go voluptuous in the late 80's and 90's.

You had Meena, Roja , Sanghavi , Nagma etc.

And among them the most ideal homely/sexy heroines were Helen, Bindu and Silk Smitha.

Look closely.. it is "horse like' but not "horse" right? Horse like gives us ideas then only scud can clarify.. there is a distant cousin to horse just a tad shorter and it is also called "a??",, my english is weak.. (like shoaib).. can you help?

BTW I saw anushka sharma recently on comedy nights where she came to promote one of her movies..(which apparently is doing well).. I wonder what kohli saw in her.. no ass-sets to write home about there.. face is also about as expressive as a goats head in a butcher shop.. I mean.. she is tall that is about it.. she did a "dance' and that was dumb too!!! Kohli got shortchanged there.

Kohli is not handsome by any means. His personality and mannerisms are nothing to write home about. He is a street thug. What do you expect ? Girl with Madhuri dixit looks? Bah. Piss always goes on top of shit when you do potty.

She is successful. That's all that should count. Beauty is in your mind. May be to kohlis eyes she is beautiful. Who cares what you think? Jawani mein suvvar bhi sundar dikhti hai naa. (Even a pig look pretty when it's young ) kohli is also successful in his area of work. I rather have two successful people engage rather than having one of them as loser. Anushka has much better attitude and sounds like a good person. That's all that should count as in 10 years nobody is beautiful anymore.

Well yaa but if I were kohli.. I would be plessing my lulli daily.. chewtiyaa saala.. I mean abhi jawaani baaki hai.. he can settle down later.. abhi to masti maar.. Bajji did it right. And for shikar..well I can agree he is a clown and needs to get hooked up first thing.. but kohli.. man that is a big waste of lulli estate..

Ganguly apparently had an affair with Nagma. When his wife Dona came to know she apparently threatened divorce. All is well now.

Yup that rumor was there and I heard it during the chappel gandungli days.. not that it was a reason for my mother's no thanks.. she was an actress and for a oldfashioned lady however educated.. that was a big no.
