Popularly known as “The Hit Girl” or ‘The Jubilee Girl”, Asha Parekh came as a whiff of fresh air in Hindi films with her lively, tomboyish yet glamorous personality. Her name was a sure-shot guarantee of hit music and box-office success. She soon became one of the most successful and highly paid actresses of her times. Being the only child of her parents, Asha was pampered to a great extent but her life took a different turn when she started learning Classical dances. It also helped her a lot in her film career. After being rejected by a prominent filmmaker, Asha Parekh made her debut opposite Shammi Kapoor in Nasir Hussain’s “Dil Deke Dekho” and then there was no looking back for her. This episode of Screen Legends highlights the initial journey of the original ‘Kaanta Laga’ girl Asha Parekh who ruled the industry from 1959 to 1973. Her story unfolds along with glimpses of her memorable song clips and scenes.
