Madhubala Postage Stamp

Madhubala was a popular Bollywood actress in the 1950s and 60s. She entered the film industry at the young age of nine. She is regarded as one of the most beautiful and talented actresses of Hindi Cinema and her movies have achieved a cult status.

She died young at the age of 36. However, in this short time she appeared in 70 movies. She was married to Kishore Kumar at the time of her death and is buried at Santacruz Cemetery.

Indian Postal Service has issued a stamp to celebrate this icon of Bollywood.

Here's a recent Marathi song by Avadhut Gupte that refers Madhubala.
