You might be aware of Bollywood celebrities who made it to the top, coming from humble background. But very few of us think about stars who at one time had the whole world under their feet, and then vanish into oblivion, overburdened by physical and emotional stress!
Parveen Babi, Vimi, Bharat Bhushan, Achala Sachdev, AK Hangal, Raj Kiran...these are all actors who at one point had everything going for them - love, money and fame. But before they knew, all was lost and nobody needed them anymore. They lived a painful life, full of loneliness and poverty, away from the glitter and glitz of Bollywood, only to be remembered long after they were dead and buried!
Not long ago, Actress Antara Mali's father, famous photographer Jagdish Mali was spotted begging on the streets of Mumbai. He was noticed by a model named Mink who called up Salman Khan, who sent four assistants and a car to drop Mali home.
A little later, the cameraman's daughter Antara Mali issued a statement saying her father didn't need help and termed the reports as publicity stunts. The enraged Salman then slammed back saying, "What is the daughter saying? Her father was walking down Yari Road without clothes, now who needs help?".
