Farah Naaz commonly credited as Farah is a leading Bollywood actress of the mid 1980s and early 1990s. She is the elder sister of Tabu.

Farha made her debut in "Faasle" in 1985 under the Yash Chopra films banner. She was one of the prominent actresses in Bollywood in the late eighties and early nineties.

Farha's landmark films were Naseeb Apna Apna (1986), Imaandaar (1987), Hamara Khandaan (1987), Naqab (1989),[1] Yateem (1988), Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri (1990), Begunaah (1991), Bhai Ho To Aisa (1995) and Sautela Bhai (1996).

She retired from acting in 1996 after her first marriage,[2] though later did some television serials. She worked with almost all of the top actors of her time, including Rajesh Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Mithun, Govinda, Aditya Pancholi and Aamir Khan.

Early life and background[edit]

Farah was born in Hyderabad, India. She is the niece of Shabana Azmi and the elder sister of Tabu.[3][4]

Career[edit]

Farah made her debut in 1985 with Yash Chopra's Faasle opposite Mahendra Kapoor's son Rohan Kapoor.[5] 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,[6] 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,[7] 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.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Farah was married to actor Vindu Dara Singh, with whom she has a son Fateh Randhawa. The couple have divorced.[9] She later remarried fellow Bollywood and television actor Sumeet Saigal.[10] in 2003.[11]
