"Wishing my mom a lovely birthday. May god bless her soul. I know wherever she is, she must be happy. Love you ma."

Born as Fatima Rashid, Nargis made her screen debut as a child artiste with Talash-E-Haq in 1935 and Tamanna (1942) was her first film as a full-fledged actress.

In her two-decade long career, Nargis appeared in several successful films like Barsaat, Andaz, Awara, Deedar, Shree 420 and Chori Chori.

She is still remembered for her role in Mehboob Khan's Oscar-nominated rural drama Mother India that came in 1957. The following year she tied the knot with her co-star Sunil Dutt who played her son in the movie.
