Mandakini all but disappeared when she got married to husband Dr Kagyur and quit films in the early 90s (she reappeared 5 years later for Zordaar but hasn’t done anything since then). Recently, though, she was spotted at an event with her husband and daughter Rabze.
Mandakini shot to fame when she starred in Ram Teri Ganga Maili – the film was also controversial for two scenes, one where she bathes under a waterfall, and another where she breastfeeds. Some years later, she is said to have attracted the attention of Dawood Ibrahim, and rumors began doing the rounds that the two were a couple. Mandakini refuted this and said that they were merely on friendly terms, but did not know each other well.
She still looks pretty much the same, right? Especially those striking eyes!
