November 25, 2020 09:46 PM

As much as we swoon over B-Town actresses today, leading ladies from the golden years of Indian cinema continue to define grace and elegance and we have enough evidence to prove that.

Back in the day, taking fashion inspiration or knowing more about your favourite celebrity's personal life was not as simple as scrolling through Instagram handles now. You had to wait for their films to know what new avatar they are donning, unlike today where now and then pictures of the leading ladies are available at one's click.

Having said that, we are sure you must think to yourselves sometimes, where and how some queens of the Indian cinema are. No matter how gorgeous the current leading ladies of B-Town look, there are some yesteryear actresses who continue to win hearts. They truly have aged like fine wine and comparing their then-now photos just makes us think to ourselves, how beautifully they have survived the test of time.

Sharmila Tagore
Sharmila Tagore is one actress who needs no introduction because to date, she enjoys a niche fan base for herself. She is a fine example of beauty with brains and best known for all the unconventional roles she donned in movies like Aradhana, Apur Sansar, Nayak amongst others.

Zeenat Aman
Without a doubt, Zeenat Aaman finds space in our list for she is an epitome of bold and beautiful. The leading lady is known by the '70s and '80s audience as someone who broke all stereotypes and played daring femme fatale-like characters.

Waheeda Rehman
If there is one actress who continues to define grace and elegance, it has to be actress Waheeda Rehman. You may recall her from her roles in movies like Guide, Pyaasa, Delhi 6 and Rang De Basanti.

Saira Banu
Known best for her on-screen and off-screen innocent aura, Saira Banu to date, impresses fans with her signature eye-liner wing and puffy hairstyles.

Tina Munim
In the early 1980s, Tina Munim was considered to be a heartthrob. She was the crush of many teenage boys and later when she got married to businessman Anil Ambani, many hearts were broken.

Till date, if we have to take inspiration on how to slay in a saree, we turn to Rekha. The actress enjoys a signature style and loves being bejeweled in ornate pieces. However, before donning this statement ethnic avatar, she graced the silver screen in glamourous polka-dotted tops and skirts.

That's all from our end! We are hoping this article took you down the memory lane as you hummed some classic tunes featuring these beauties.
