On Thursday, Google has devoted her doodle to Madhubala's iconic Indian actor, known as The Marilyn Monroe of Bollywood. The painter in Bangalore Muhammad Sajid created a doodle to honor the actor of her 86th anniversary.
Madhubala, who has starred in over 70 films, is known for her beauty and elegance. Growing up in the slums of the then-Bombay, she supported her family as a child star and soon became a leading lady on the screen. She has acted in different genres; her films include Mahal (1949), Durally (1949), Bekasur (1950), Tarana (1951), Amar (1954), Mr. and Mrs. 55 (1955), Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi ), Hovra Bridge (1958) and Mughal-e-Azam (1960).
Born February 14, 1933, Mumtah Jehhan Begum Dehlavi was raised in a city near the Bombay speaker film studio. She appeared in her first 9-year-old film, Baby Mumtaz. In 1947, she split the lead role in Neel Kamal with Raj Kapor at the age of 14, accepting the name Madhubala.
As the main spouse of the family, she works tirelessly to support her parents and four sisters. Madhubala appeared in nine films in 1949, including an enchanting representation of a breakthrough in the box office of Mahal.
While her breath-taking vision gets comparisons with Venus, Madhubala is an actor with a low-key style, suitable for comedies, dramas and romantic roles.
She fell in love with Dilip Kumar, her perch in the Taran novel, in 1951, but her father, who ruled his career, interfered. The actors' chemistry in the epic historical drama Mughal-e-Azam – one of Bollywood's most popular films – was undeniable and unforgettable. Later she married her Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi Kishor Kumar was a co-star in 1960.
In the course of her tragically short career, Madhubala was named "The Biggest Star in the World" in 1952 by Theatrical Arts Magazine. In 2008, she appeared on a commemorative postage stamp in India where many remember him as one of the greatest who once decorated the silver screen.
Madhubala died at the age of 36 on February 23, 1969, after a prolonged illness.
