Personal life[edit]

Vimi was a Punjabi girl who married Shiv Agarwal, son of an Industrialist. Music Director Ravi got introduced to her at a party in Calcutta and later invited her and Shiv to Mumbai. He introduced them to B. R. Chopra and that is how Vimi got her first film.

After separating from her husband Shiv, Vimi started living with small-time film producer Jolly but her film career never picked up. She soon turned to alcohol which killed her. She died on August 22, 1977 in Mumbai.[1]


Vimi debuted opposite Sunil Dutt in B. R. Chopra-directed Hamraaz in 1967. The film was a hit but did not help her career. She appeared with Shashi Kapoor in Patanga (1971) and Vachan (1974). She was the leading lady in Aabroo (1968) opposite Deepak Kumar.
