Kimi Katkar

Anu Agarwal

Anu Aragwal Then
Anu Agarwal was a perfect blend of beauty and brain. Anu was highly qualified – topper in Delhi University. Anu Aragwal was a famous name in modeling world during the start of 90’s. Anu’s innocent face was her trade mark. Anu Agarwal made her debut in Bollywood Hindi film in Mahesh Bhatt’s Ashique. After the release of the film Anu Agarwal and Rahul Roy reached the top of fame. The tragedy is that both Rahul and Anu could failed to utilize the success of their first film. So far as Anu Agarwal is concerned, she took wrong decision in selection of films afterwards and one after another flop pushed her in backward direction. Anu’s own lifestyle was also responsible for her flop in the industry. May be the educated actress made so many mistakes that she is now living like a common woman.

Anu Now
In 1999, Anu Agarwal faced a fatal car accident and she was in coma for 29 days. There are many rumours about the accident but the fact is now Anu is leading a lonely life away from the tinsel world. It is heard that Anu Agarwal is now residing at Munger in Bihar where she is working as an instructor of a yoga school.

Mamta Kulkarni

Mamta Kulkarni Then
Mamta Kulkarni came from a middle class family and stardom, glamour and money made her crazy. Mamta’s best asset in Bollywood was her sexy image. Mamta Kulkarni came in the industry in 80’s but vanished from the industry very quickly. Mamta acted in films like Tiranga, Krantiveer, Karan Arjun and many more.

Mamta Now
From the beginning Mamta Kulkarni’s life style was very dangerous and gradually she lost everything. Nobody can tell where Mamta Kulkarni is now. Bollywood has forgotten her name. It is heard that once Mamta Kulkarni had a relationship with Vicky Goswami – the man who was arrested by Dubai police in connection with drugs. It is heard that Mamta is now staying at Nairobi and that’s all. What Mamta is doing there, whether she is married, no information is available.

Presently Shilpa is working in a TV serial in Mumbai.


Mandakini Then

Mandakini made her debut in Hindi films with Raj Kapoor’s Ram Teri Ganga Maili. Bold acting of Mandakini under the direction of Raj Kapoor created history. Afterwards Mandakini acted in many films but the actress found more interest in somewhere else. Relationship between Mandakini and underworld Don, Dawood Ibrahim ultimately finished her filmy career. Mandakini is not married but she is a mother.

Farah At That Time

Farah entered Bollywood film industry in the 1980 and was in limelight till 1990. The tomboy attitude of the beautiful looking actress was her trade mark. Farah acted in films like ‘Imaandaar’, ‘Naseeb Apna Apna’, ‘Love 86’, ‘Baap Numbari Beta Dus Numbari’. Farah married Dara Singh’s son Vindu Dara Singh and stayed away from films and social circuit.

Ayesha Jhulka
