Birthdays are a joyous time and so today BollyCurry has the pleasure in bringing to you an amazing celebrity who celebrates her birthday today, the one and only Asha Parekh!

Born on 2nd October, 1942, Parekh was born into a middle-class Gujarati family in Mumbai to a Hindu father and a Muslim mother. She was enrolled in Indian classical dance classes at a very young age, which served to be useful in her days ahead at the Indian film industry.

Parekh started her career as a child artist in Aasmaan (1952) under the screen name of Baby Asha Parekh. She was then cast in Baap Beti (1954) at the age of twelve by director Bimal Roy. She started her career as an adult actress with Dil Deke Dekho (1959) opposite Shammi Kapoor.

Parekh enacted a wide variety of roles in her career, starting with glamour girl roles and then transitioning to serious and tragic roles, including various dramatic roles as well a few cameos for special directors. As her career passed on and her time of playing roles as the leading lady slowly came to an end, Parekh took on the supporting roles of bhabhi (sister-in-law) and mother, though she often considered this to be an awkward phase in her life. Parekh then went on to act in a Gujarati serial Jyoti and formed her own production company, Akruti, and produced several serials. She has received many awards in her career so far, including being honoured with the Padma Shri by the Indian government in 1992.

Parekh remains unmarried to this day as it was often rumoured that she was mostly felt to be unapproachable.

To celebrate Asha Parekh's birthday, below is mini list of her biggest hits:
  1. Dil Deke Dekho - Dil Deke Dekho
  2. Jiya O Jiya - Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai
  3. Jab Chali Thandi Hawa - Do Badan
  4. Na Koi Umang Hai - Do Badan
  5. Kuch Kehta Hai Yeh Sawan - Mera Gaon Mera Desh
  6. Kitna Pyara Wada Hai - Caravan

Here's wishing the lovely lady a very happy birthday from this BollyCurry author and all the others!
