Can anyone tell me who this actress is? This is a film still from 1940; by this time she was already well-established (she had begun acting in the silent era) and she went on to have a long and illustrious career in Hindi cinema.
Thanks to reader Sumanth, I have links to my humiliating stellar appearance on Bollywood Ka Boss which is now on YouTube…Here you go, and thanks Sumanth!
If the links above don’t work, Atul has been kind enough to upload it here:
Mercifully, I’m only on for about five minutes.
In the film Namak Halaal (1982) there is a funny scene in the hotel club where Arjun (Amitabh Bachchan) has food spilled on one of his shoes; when he tries to clean it off in the canal that goes through the club, he loses it, and then spends the next 20 minutes or so trying desperately to get it back without being noticed (this naturally involves a drunk man falling in, Amitabh almost falling in, and general mayhem).
Which Hollywood film is this scene copied (almost exactly) from?
In which film does my beloved Shammi Kapoor meet a gruesome death, when he climbs into a large urn to escape detection by his beloved’s father. Her father, suspecting that he’s hiding in there, orders the firewood underneath it to be lit, and he roasts to death as his spineless beloved sings a sad song (needless to say, not my favorite film; it breaks my Cardinal Rule Number One for Hindi films: Shammi should never ever die).
