Farah Naaz

Farah Naaz was one of the most famous Bollywood actresses in the 80s & early 90s. Her landmark films were Faisla (1985), Hamara Khandaan (1987), Naqab (1989), Yateem (1989) and Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri (1990). She retired from acting at the peak of her career in 1990 at the age of 22. She worked with almost all of the top actors of her time, including Rishi Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Mithun, Govinda, and Aamir Khan. Farah was born in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. She is the niece of Shabana Azmi and the elder sister of Tabu.

Farah made her debut in 1985 with Yash Chopra’s Faasle opposite Mahendra Kapoor’s son Rohan Kapoor.After Faasle , Farah got many other big offers like Shakti Samanta’s Paley Khan, K.C Bokadia’s Naseeb Apna Apna and Pran Lal Mehta’s Love 86. She was part of hits like Marte Dam Tak, Naseeb Apna Apna, Love 86, Imaandaar, Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani, Diljala, Rakhwala, Veeru Dada, and Baap Ek Numbari Beta Dus Numbari. J.P Dutta’s Yateem got her critical acclaim, and it was one of her performance-oriented roles, along with films such as Hamara Khandaan, Naqaab, Khatarnaak, and Pati Patni aur Tawaif, although they were commercial failures. In the 1990s, she worked with Aamir Khan in two films, Jawani Jindabad and Isi Ka Naam Zindagi, but both flopped at box office. She was signed for Khuda Gawah and she shot for few scenes, but due to delays in production, she was later replaced with Shilpa Shirodkar. By the same time, she got married to Dara Singh’s son Vindu Dara Singh. Farah then started playing supporting roles in films like Muqabla, Dhartiputra and Izzat Ki Roti. She later switched to TV and did serials such as Amar Prem, Andaz, Ahaa (all three produced by Himesh Reshammiya), Vailayiti Babu and Papa. Farah was also planning a mega serial called Taqdeer, but shelved the project. She returned to films in 2004 with Hulchul.

Farah has now divorced Vindu Dara Singh and lives an independent life with her only son.
