Yaadon Ki Baarat -1973
Profile Bio Text
Neetu Singh made her debut as a heroine in 1972 with Rikshawala which was a flop. She took a small role in Yaadon Ki Baarat (1973), which became a hit, and her sizzling dance number to the song Lekar hum brought her so much attention that she was immediately offered lead roles again. In most films, Neetu was cast as the fun-loving daughter or the `optimistic` or `lively` girlfriend. She acted with the top stars of her day, especially Rishi Kapoor with whom she appeared in half a dozen films.
On screen and off it, Neetu and Rishi Kapoor fell in love. This led to the couple tying the knot in 1979 after a much publicized engagement that was the talk of Bollywood. Neetu was 21 at that time. She was at the top of her career, having just been nominated for a Filmfare Award as Best Supporting Actress for Kaala Pathar (1979), but she retired. She dismissed the allegation that she left films, because it was customary for actresses married to the famous Kapoor family to retire after marriage, claiming that it was her `personal choice.
