She could be mischievous and flirtations, regal, tragic and imperious. When Madhubala gave her lopsided smile and spoke in that sensuous husky whisper, audiences everywhere fell under her spell.



Beginning as a child star, Madhubala brought an infectious vivacity to her acting.  A mesmerising screen presence combined with versatile acting skills made her one of the eternal stars of the Hindi screen.


Madhubala: Masti and Magic is the extraordinary story of an actress rising from poverty to the height of success and then her life sinking into heartbreaking tragedy.  A personal life dogged with disappointments was followed by a serious illness that took Madhubala away from the world of films that she loved.
