Early life and background
Farah made her debut in 1985 with Yash Chopra's Faasle opposite Mahendra Kapoor's son Rohan Kapoor. Although Faasle was a disaster, Farah got many other big offers such as Shakti Samanta's Palay Khan, K.C. Bokadia's Naseeb Apna Apna and Pran Lal Mehta's Love 86.
She was part of hits such as Marte Dam Tak, Naseeb Apna Apna, Love 86, Imaandaar, Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani, Diljalaa, Rakhwala, Hamara Khandaan, Woh Phir Aayegi, Veeru Dada, Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri, Begunaah and Muqabla. J.P. Dutta's Yateem got her critical acclaim, and it was one of her performance-oriented roles, along with films such as Kaarnama, Naqaab, Khatarnaak and Pati Patni Aur Tawaif, although they were commercial failures. Her performance in the hit films – Woh Phir Aayegi and Begunaah were critically acclaimed. In the 1990s, she worked with Aamir Khan in two films; Jawani Zindabad and Isi Ka Naam Zindagi, but both flopped at the box office. She was signed for Khuda Gawah and she shot for a few scenes, but due to delays in production, she was later replaced with Shilpa Shirodkar. However, till date, her role in Ranjeet's Kaarnama opposite Vinod Khanna, Woh Phir Aayegi and Begunaah with Rajesh Khanna are considered her best roles ever offered to her. By the same time, she got married to Dara Singh's son Vindu Dara Singh.
Farah then started playing supporting roles in films such as Muqabla, Dhartiputra and Izzat Ki Roti. Muqabla was very successful, but later, her other films between 1993 and 1996 were not successful, though Sautela Bhai was a commercial hit and critically acclaimed. She later switched to television and did serials such as Amar Prem, Andaz, Ahaa (all three produced by Himesh Reshammiya), Vailayiti Babu and Papa. Farah was also planning a mega serial called Taqdeer, but she shelved the project. She returned to films in 2004 with Hulchul.
Farah was married to actor Vindu Dara Singh, with whom she has a son Fateh Randhawa. The couple have divorced. She later remarried fellow Bollywood and television actor Sumeet Saigal. in 2003.
