|Waheeda Rehman was
born in 1936 in Hyderabad. In her childhood days she
moved all around the South with her father. Waheeda
Rehman lost her father at a very early age, when she was
just 12. Her first film was in Telugu in which she
performed a dance. This role got her a break in Hindi
cinema when she was picked up for leading actress role in
C.I.D and Pyassa. C.I.D. was released in 1956 and Pyassa
followed in 1957.
Soon Kagaz Ke Phool, Chaudhvi Ka Chand, Sahib Biwi aur Ghulam followed and brought huge successes for Waheeda. Then she did Guide which is the crowning glory of Waheeda's illustrious career. She then repeated the good performance with Neel Kamal a couple of years later.
After Neel Kamal, Waheeda's films did not perform very good and she decided to tie the knot. She married Kamaljit and had two lovely children. Then she did character roles occasionaly.
