Vimi (died 22 August 1977) was a Bollywood actress who acted in Indian films such as Hamraaz and Patanga.

Career[edit]

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.

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.

As Sunil Dutt sang to her (Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jeeo, Na Munh Chhupako Jeeo) the enchanting image of Vimi won the viewers' hearts.

She spent her last few days in the general ward of Nanavati hospital. She died on 22 August 1977 in Mumbai.[2]
