    Dear Sir/Madam,
    i am writing to thank you for this initiative. My only request and advice is that you should add the place of birth as well in the profiles. For many of us, the connection with pre-partition Western Punjab, Sindh, NWFP of the veteran actors and actresses is also important.
    I can help you with some information that I have with me.
    Best regards
