Happy birthday to the girl named Fatima who grew up to steal heart as Bollywood's Nargis
Today on Nargis Dutt's 86 birthday, we have to turn back the pages and have to glimpse through the legacy she has left behind.

Nargis Dutt was actually born as Fatima Rashid in 1929. She started working at the age of 13 years. Tamanna was her first film. But it was from 1940 till 1960 that she appeared in films that gave her the stature of a highly successful commercial actress.

Her films with Raj Kapoor always used to steal the hearts of the audience and we cannot forget the hauntingly simple 'pyar huya ikraar huya' song.

Actors with so less ammunition (such as makeup or expensive locals or sets) could pour so much magic in a scene was a trademark of Nargis. The way she could emote with her eyes is no more known by today's actresses. Shree 420, Barsaat Awara and Mother India are films, which would stand the tests of time.

Although, it was rumored that Nargis had an affair with Raj Kapoor, it was never confirmed. She was supposedly not happy with Kapoor's womanizing ways and decided to get married to Sunil Dutt. She had three children with Sunil Dutt and was engaged with various charitable organizations. Unfortunately she died of pancreatic cancer.

Google Doodle is felicitating actress Nargis Dutt on her 86 birthday today with a beautiful sketch of the actress. In black and white, the doodle is that of a beautiful young Nargis holding her pallu with her intense stare, which we all are familiar with and have seen in so many films of hers.
