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]].
