The original 'Chamma Chamma' girl of Bollywood, Urmila Matondkar turns a year older today. From her drop-dead gorgeous looks to her impeccable dancing prowess, the actress always gave us plenty of reasons to go 'Ho Jaa Rangeela Re'. Even after so many years, Urmila continues to make us skip a heartbeat whenever she makes an appearance on-screen.
On her 45th birthday today, we bring you her 7 best performances which prove her versatility as an actress.
Urmila made her debut as a child artiste in the Hindi film industry with Shekhar Kapoor's cult film 'Masoom' where she played the role of Pinky. While it was Jugal Hansraj who had an author-backed role in this flick, Urmila too left a mark with her childish innocence.
When a skimpily-clad Urmila ran down the stretch of the beach in 'Tanha Tanha' in Rangeela, the entire nation gasped for their breath. As Mili, Matondkar was the right balance of sweet and sexy.
Urmila proved she was more than just a glam face when she gave us major spooks in Ram Gopal Varma's psychological thriller, 'Kaun.' And yes, who can forget that last scene in that film?
Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya
Urmila proved her detractors wrong once again when she pulled off yet another powerful act in Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya where she essayed the role of an obsessive love.
Urmila gave us major shivers as a woman possessed by the spirit of another woman in Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot.
In a film boosting of stellar performances by Maoj Bajpayee and others, Urmila left her own mark as Puro.
Ek Hasina Thi
As a girl who is hell-bent on seeking revenge from her lover who falsely implicates her in a crime, Urmila received praises from all nooks and corners for this dark thriller helmed by Sriram Raghavan.
