    36Hindi actress, dancer and singer, originally Harikirtan Kaur. Born in Amritsar, Punjab. Started in film aged 12 in a Shorey short (The Cobbler) followed by her feature début in Majnu’s Badnami. Lively dancer, mainly in films by Kidar Sharma (Suhaag Raat was her first major film), Guru Dutt (Baazi, Baaz, Jaal, Sailaab) and Master Bhagwan (the hit musical Albela). Also featured in whodunits by Ravindra Dave and Shakti Samanta. Only occasionally successful in dramatic roles, e.g. her famous portrayal of a blind girl in Sohrab Modi’s Jailor. In Sharma’s Banwre Nain she used an eloquent gestural style to play the country girl betrayed by the hero, matched only by her contemporary, Nimmi.
