A sneak peek into Asha Parekh’s multi-dimensional life


Yesteryear’s Bollywood personalities have been trend-setters in their own right. Asha Parekh is one such veteran actress who has pulled off many impactful roles with ease. She also became the first female chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification. Padma Shri Asha Parekh’s personal and professional journey has been very inspiring. Here are some interesting facts about The Hit Girl of Bollywood…

2. Happily unmarried
An astrologer had rightly predicted that Asha would never get married. People perceived her to be unapproachable and therefore, hesitated in asking her out. She was apparently all set to marry an NRI, but the wedding was called off when Asha got to know that he was already in a relationship.
