Mala Sinha

One of the most popular female stars in Bollywood films from the fifties to the early seventies, Mala Sinha was born on November 11th, 1936 in Kashmir, India (again there seems to be some question as some sources list her as being born in Calcutta, West Bengal, India).
She began acting as a child, and her first film is also in question.
Some places have it listed as Roshanara (1952), some as Jhanshi Ki Rani(1952) and still others have Jog Biyog (1953) listed as her debut as an adult.
Either way, she went on to appear in over one hundred Hindi, Bengali and Nepali films.
Mala is also the mother of Bollywood actress Pratibha Sinha.
