Throwback Thursday: Retro Bollywood Celebs Then & Now

Time can be a friend or foe in our lives. Sometimes it takes time for something to live up to its full potential, whereas it can spoil something over time. There have been a lot of celebrities who have almost seen a lot from the vast history of Bollywood. They have worked their entire lives with just one goal – to entertain us and some of them still do. You surely must have heard your parents going on and on about an actor’s good looks or great comic timing, but you may not be able to see it. Probably because for you they were all born 50. Well, that is not the case (did you not know that already?!). Let us go back in time to get a glance of some of the celebrities from their first movie to the latest one. Hopefully, you will see how they captured our hearts and held onto them.

Sharmila Tagore

Winner of numerous awards ranging from Filmare to National and even the Padma Bhushan, she was once the highest paid actress along with Mumtaz. She is also the first actress to don the bikini in the movie ‘An evening in Paris’

Shammi Kapoor

You know him for his energetic dancing moves, which were unparalled during his peak time in Bollywood. He also belongs to one of the leading families of Bollywood, which has given us so many superstars.

Rishi Kapoor

Also belonging to the leading family of Bollywood,  he made his debut as a child actor for which he received the National Award. After which, he worked in the movie Bobby and won a Filmfare award for the same.  Doesn’t it look that his genes have passed on sucessfully (hint: the very handsome Ranbir Kapoor)?

Vinod Khanna

He started his career as a villian and went on to become a hero in the hearts of the audience. With his charismatic personality and macho looks, he still manages to keep the audience hooked to him.

Hema Malini

The Dream Girl of Bollywood. She has held onto our hearts since her first appearance in Sapno Ka Saudagar. Prior to that she was seen in Tamil and Telugu films as a dancer. She is one of the many few who have managed to age gracefully.

Amitabh Bachchan

The ‘Angry Young Man’ of Bollywood won a National Award with his first movie Saat Hindustani. Ironically, he was rejected by All India Radio because of his voice. Can you believe that?

Jeetendra

The ‘Jumping Jack’ of Bollywood says his life lacks ‘masala’ for a Biography. But he has given us 200 plus movies in his entire career, which is saying something.

Dharmendra

His career goes long back till 1958 when he starred in his first film Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere.  In the mid 70’s he was also recognised as the most handsome man in the world, the first Indian to hold the title. We agree!


Rajesh Khanna

He was the original Superstar of Bollywood. Apart from being a versatile actor, he was also a playback singer. Alas, his legacy was tarnished by the movies he did in his later years, which did not really go well with the image he had built over decades. But we cannot forget the entertaining movies he has given us.

Rekha
Rekha - BookMyShow

Almost unrecognizable from her first movie to the woman we see today.  Reminds us that wine improves with age and so does this diva.
