Indian Actress Celebrates 100th Birthday!!

The Tollywood circuit feels very blessed to have a legend like Akkineni Nageswara Rao amidst us who is hale and healthy at 88. But there is someone who is much senior to him and is still live and kicking. She has actually created history in Indian cinema by celebrating her birthday today.
 
Her name is Zohra Sehgal and today she celebrates her 100th birthday. Born in Sahranpur, Uttar Pradesh way back in 1912, Zohra started her career as a dancer and made her debut as an actor in the year 1946 where she did the movie ‘Dharti Ke Lal’.
 
She was also seen in the hit movies like ‘Bhaji On The Beach’ ‘Dil Se’ ‘Veer-Zaara’ ‘Cheeni Kum’ and others. Incidentally, even Zohra has been an atheist since her youth and has turned agnostic which is quite similar to our ANR. Anyhow, here’s wishing this special actress a very special birthday.

Well, one the other hand Zohra is the only actress who is older than Indian Cinema. We all know, 'Raja Harischandra', the first silent movie of India released in 1913 while Zohra was born in 1912 Apr 27.

See how strong and sharp minded is she at the age of 100.
