How can we forget these beauty queens? They are the ones who thrilled the movie spectators during the 60s and 70s. Actresses like Vyjayanthimala, Madhubala and Hema Malini had made a strong impression in the minds of viewers at that time.

Surely, Meena and Madhubala deserve a place here. I have published another hub entirely devoted to Meena Kumari,For which reason I have not mentioned about her here, to avoid duplication. As I could not get a good picture of MAdhu, i have not explained about her. I shall add her soon.
