Today marks the birthdays of two elegant actresses of Bollywood; one a long standing member and one relatively new. Please join BollyCurry in celebrating the birthday of Waheeda Rehman and Zarine Khan.
Waheeda Rehman was born on 14th May, 1938 to a Tamil and Urdu speaking family in the Chengalpattu district of Tamil Nadu. She lost her parents at the tender ages of ten and eighteen. With sheer determination, she learnt Bharatnatyam in her childhood but desired to become a doctor. However, due to circumstances and illness, she had to abandon her dream and instead pursued a career in acting.
Rehman made her cinematic debut in both a Telugu movie called Rajulu Marayi (1955) and a Tamil movie titled Kaalam Maari Pochi (1955). Her talent was noticed by filmmaker Guru Dutt who then offered her her Bollywood debut with CID (1956), marking it as one of the most stunning debuts of Bollywood of all time. Her association with Dutt also resulted in other hit movies such as Pyaasa (1957) and Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960). Both Rehman and Dutt were often speculated to be involved romantically but their relationship ended due to her success and workload and his existing marriage.
Apart from Dutt, Rehman worked with other famous filmmakers including Satyajit Ray. Some of her notable works include Bees Saal Baad (1962), Kohraa (1964), Guide (1964) and Reshma Aur Shera (1972). Her commendable body of work and deliverance of hit after hit made her a prominent actress of the 60s and 70s. This has been proved by being bestowed with myriad of awards such as the Padma Shri, the Padma Bhushan, the Filmfare Award for Lifetime Achievement and the National Award for Best Actress.
In regards to her personal life, Rehman married Sohail Rekhi who died in 2000. The couple have two children. Since then she has been seen in a handful of movies prominently playing the roles of an elderly person.
On her birthday here is a mini playlist of some of her popular songs:
  1. "Dil-e-betaab Ko Sene Se" - Palki
  2. "Dekho Saiyan Beimaan " - Guide
  3. "Tu Chanda Mein Chandni" - Reshma Aur Shera
  4. "Aaj Ki Raat Mere Dil Ke Salaam Le" - Ram Aur Shyam
  5. "Swan Aaye Na Aaye " -  Dil Diya Dard Liya 
  6. "Yeh Nayan Dare Dare" - Kohra
  7. "Sajanavaa Bairi Ho"  - Teri Kasam
  8. "Khoya Khoya Chand" - Kala Bazam
  9. "Jidhar Dekho Teri Tasveeer" - Mahaan

On the other hand we have newcomer Zarine Khan who was born on 14th May, 1987 to a Pathan family. During her childhood, she too aspired of becoming a doctor but then changed tact and decided to become an actor. The fair beauty shot to fame when Salman Khan noticed her whilst she was visiting Subhash Ghai's Whistling Woods institute. Khan thought she would be perfect for the role of a princess in the movie Veer (2010) and thus offered her the project, making it her debut into Bollywood.
Her continued association with Khan resulted in the item song "Character Dheela" from Ready (2011) which further gained her recognition. She followed this up by playing a major role in Housefull 2 (2012) alongside Akshay Kumar and Asin. Her latest project was the Punjabi movie Jatt James Bond which released in April 2014 and was declared a Box Office hit.
On her birthday, here is a mini-playlist of some of her popular songs:
  1. "Meherbaniyan" - Veer
  2. "Salaam Aaya" - Veer
  3. "Taali" - Veer
  4. "Character Dheela" - Ready
  5. "Papa Toh Band Bajaye" - Housefull 2
  6. "Right Now Now "- Housefull 2

On behalf of BollyCurry and all fans, we wish both actresses a Happy Birthday.
