Parveen Babi got a break in Bollywood with BR Ishara’s bold social drama Charitra (1973). The film sank without a trace but this lissome lass from Junagadh was meant for bigger things. Babi would go on to become one of the top-paid actresses of her era, a symbol of modern woman in Hindi cinema, and a timeless style icon. At 55, she passed away after having battled mental illness and health complications. On her 70th birth anniversary, we look back at her most memorable onscreen appearances.
