    Parveen Babi had kept her mark in stylish roles during 70s and 80s. She was impressive in Majboor, opposite Big B, in 1974, where Big B had thought he had brain tumour,

    i’m the biggest fan of parveen babi on this earth. why the fuck are you people just writing about her roles in her movies. was she only an actress? noooooooo! how many times did i go to for ex to see interviews with her? do i find only just ONE?NO! when i was in mumbai in 2000 i used to love the asshole, amitabh bachchan till i met him in personal. i met many film industry people there. but what a pig. many of the celebrities in india froze her out and left her to be by herself. i thank god for the day i met her in holiday inn, mumbai, even if it was sad meeting her. she sat at the restaurant alone having coffee. at first i didn’t recognise her. i went to her and asked if she was parveen, and she answered yes. there was very much sorrow in her eyes. she allowed me to sit. and believe this or not. when i told her that she’s my idol, i saw her face change. and she smiled and said that no one cares. she’s the most beautiful woman on earth.And aishwarya rai, go and fuck yourself. parveen is the queen , no one else.
