Whenever we think of the epitome of Indian beauty, the ever-so-graceful Madhubala strikes our mind first. While the world draws a parallel between her and Hollywood style icon Marilyn Monroe, Madhubala is widely referred as ‘The Venus of Indian Cinema’ and ‘The Beauty with Tragedy.’

Known for her brilliant acting skills and her immaculate beauty, Madhubala caught the attention of the world and became one of the first women from Bollywood to attract the eyeballs of Hollywood.

Her brief career in Bollywood started at the age of 9. For the next 5 years, Madhubala continued working as a child artist, until she was cast for her first lead role opposite Raj Kapoor in ‘Neel Kamal’. Her performance in Mughal-e-Azam (1960) made her the unchallenged queen of Hindi cinema. She later married Kishore Kumar.
While Madhubala died at a young age of 36, she left behind a trail of her style, beauty and elegance which is admired till date. Her well-documented life is open to all.
