Madhubala or Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi was born on February 14, 1933, in Delhi. During the career spanning 22 years, Madhubala was known for her roles in more than 70 films of a variety of genres.

Madhubala made her screen debut in a minor role at the age of 9 with the film Basant (1942). However, her acting career actually began in 1947, when she made her debut with Raj Kapoor at the age of 14 with the film Neel Kamal (1947).

Her performance in Mughal-e-Azam established her as an iconic actress of Hindi Cinema.

Madhubala's life and career was cut short when she died on 23 February 1969 from a prolonged illness at the age of 36.
