Apart from pairing with the same actor, playing the role of his mother is an act of courage and this task has been successfully done by Rakhi.
Rakhee Gulzar made her film debut with the Bengali film “Badhu Baran” for the first time. This was his first film at the age of 20. The film proved to be a hit and Rakhi Gulzar started getting work in Hindi films. Rakhi started working in Bollywood in 1970 with the film “Jeevan Mriti”. This film was also a hit.
