Today, the 10th of December, celebrates the birthday of a yesteryear model turned actress, Rati Agnihotri. Born in the year 1960, the the ethereal beauty turns 53 this year. 

Even though Agnihotri was born into a conservative Punjabi family, she was allowed to pursue a career in modelling at the age of ten and this formed the basic foundation of her route into Bollywood. When her father had to shift to Madras due to work commitments, she moved with him and completed the rest of her schooling there. Luck favoured her one fine day as she was noticed by Bharathiraja, a famous Tamil film director, who cast her in his next film as the leading lady. This catapulted her to fame, turning her into a star overnight. She continued to act in many South Indian movies, churning blockbuster hits after hits.

Agnihotri marked her debut in Bollywood with Ek Duje Ke Liye (1981), a remake of a Telugu film. Though the film did not do well at the theatres, she was appreciated for her role and started receiving offers from many other Bollywood projects. Some of her notable works include Farz aur Kanoon (1982), Coolie (1983), Tawaif (1985) and Hukumat (1987).

With her father's sudden demise, things took a drastic turn in Agnihotri's life as she had to settle down and leave her career at the turn of its peak. She took wedding vows with businessman Anil Virwani and later contributed her time in raising her son, Tanuj Virwani. After a sabbatical of sixteen years, the dazzling lady returned to the limelight with some powerful and glamorous performances as a mother. A few films to list are Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi (2001), Yaadein (2001), Hum Tum (2004) and Luck (2009).

Below are a few songs to remember those awesome moments we saw Agnihotri spreading her charm and beauty on-screen.

  1. "Hum Bane Tum Bane" - Ek Duje Ke Liye
  2. "Hum Tum Dono Jab Mil Jayen" - Ek Duje Ke Liye
  3. "Mere Jeevan Saathi" - Ek Duje Ke Liye
  4. "Humka Ishq Hua" - Coolie
  5. "Sari Duniya Ka Bhoj" - Coolie
  6. "Tere Pyar Ki Tamanna" - Tawaif
  7. "Bahut Der Kardi" - Tawaif
  8. "Aaj Ki Sham" - Tawaif
  9. "Jab Tak Pyar Nahin Hota" - Farz aur Kanoon
  10. "Dil Ko Zara Sambhalo" - Farz aur Kanoon
  11. "Na Zulm Na Zalim Ka" - Hukumat

BollyCurry wishes this beautiful actress a fabulous birthday and hopes to see her in more films with some meaty roles to portray in the coming times.
