Nargis is remembered as one of the most graceful beauties and accomplished performers Indian cinema has had. The 1935 film ‘Talashe Ishq’ featured her as a child actor. However, she had a proper debut with Phani Majumder’s ‘Tamanna’ in 1942 and there was no looking back. Till 1960, Nargis acted in numerous films and achieved the best of commercial and critical success. Her performance in ‘Mother India’ created history and the film was nominated for Academy Awards. She later got married to actor Sunil Dutt and her stints with films became irregular. She also became the first patron of The Spastics Society of India, an organisation providing care to children affected by cerebral palsy.
