Mumtaz Dehalvi became Madhubala
Most people know that Madhubala’s real name was Mumtaz Dehalvi. But very few people know who named him. At that time, the famous actress Devika Rani liked Madhubala’s work in the film ‘Basant’. It was Madhubala’s first film. On the suggestion of Devika Rani, Mumtaz Dehalvi kept her screen name Madhubala.
Neelkamal made Madhubala popular
In 1947, ‘Neelkamal’ became a super hit and through this film Madhubala’s popularity started skyrocketing. It was only after this film that Madhubala came to be called ‘Beauty Devi’. She was one of the few actresses who worked with Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar and Dilip Kumar – all three.
Talent is not just ‘beauty’
After the independence of the country, there came a time when many of his films flopped. Many people believed that the reason for his popularity is not his talent, but his beauty. They get work because of that only. However, then around 1958, many of his films became hits and his name was elevated. Films like ‘Kala Pani’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Howrah Bridge’ restored her.
The movie that lasted forever
For Mughal-e-Azam, K. Asif wanted a pair of Dilip-Madhubala. Made in more than 10 years, the film broke all kinds of records. During this film, the relationship between Madhubala-Dilip Kumar also broke. This is the time when Dilip-Madhubala had a breakup but both were working to complete the film. In this one scene, Dilip Kumar was supposed to slap Madhubala but this could not be done with Dilip Kumar. Several times took place and director K. Asif’s anger was on the seventh sky. He got up from his seat and gave Madhubala a strong slap. After this there was peace on the set. Madhubala started crying after this loud slap. However, this scene later became one of the most memorable scenes of the film.
