Mumtaz Abdulla Khan or Madhubala as she is better known as, showed the world what real beauty was. She had such good looks that she has remained the ultimate beauty till now. No one has been as beautiful as her what with those quivering lips, smoldering eyes, long eyelashes, strands of beautiful hair, glistening cheeks, that infectious smile?oops! So much of beauty in one person. Madhubala, the fifth born in a Pathan family of 11 children, enthralled everyone with her very first film 'Mahal'. She was only 16 then. But much before that, she had charmed everyone as the new child artist in 'Barsaat' (1942). Her other films were 'Howrah Bridge', 'Jaali Note', 'Kala Paani', 'Phagun', 'Barsaat Ki Raat', 'Chalti Ka Naam Gadi' and the ever 'Mughal-E-Azam'. Most of her heroes were big timers like Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar and Kishore Kumar. Some of the songs made memorable by her are 'Aaiye meharbaa, baithiye jaane jaan?.' (Howrah Bridge) and 'Ek ladki beeghi baaghi si?' (Chalti Ka Naam Gadi). She led a very short life but gave quite a many memorable films. Madhubala left many more lamenting hearts when, after suffering for nine years, she met that fateful moment of her life where she quit the world in 1969.
