Sangeeta Bijlani's debut movie was Hathyar (1989) opposite Dharmendra. There was a mad scramble to have a good look at this beautiful actress who many thought had the capacity of dethroning many reigning queens of that time. But the films that followed were not good enough and she was remembered as only the good model that she was. Some of her other films are Jurm, Shivram, Yodha, Tahqeeqat, Yugandhar and Nirbhay. Her co-stars mostly were Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra, Sunny Deol and Mithun Chakraborty. She also had a serial Chandni to her credit but it did not bring out the acting talent in her.
Now married to the Indian ex-cricket captain, Azharuddin, she manages a media company started by them.
