An accomplished actor and a remarkable person: That’s Ratna Pathak for us!


If you admire the idea of beauty with brains, we know someone who personifies this idea perfectly- Ratna Pathak. From her journey in the theatre world to winning accolades internationally, there are many things that make her stand out from other actors and personalities. Read on to know why we admire this gem of a person.

1. Her love story with Naseeruddin Shah is the most genuine story you’d ever hear. In 1975, a young college student Ratna and Naseeruddin met as co-actors for their first play titled Sambhog se Sanyas tak, and they hit-off instantly! She summarised their story with this quote: “One day we were not even friends; the next day we were going out together.”

2. She also sat on the director’s chair for the play A Walk In The Woods which has her husband and notable actor Naseeruddin Shah and the talented Rajit Kapur. Showcasing the dialogue between diplomats of India and Pakistan, this play has received great reviews and put Ratna Pathak on a different pedestal in the world of theatre.
