Madhubala - A star deprived of national honour and recognition; sister Madhur Bhushan asks 'Why wasn’t she ever considered for Bharat Ratna?'

An epitome of beauty, known for her acting prowess and a name that became synonymous with the Indian film industry, Madhubala, was a screen goddess like none other. Loved by millions, Madhubala was a hugely successful star of her generation. She rose to international prominence with her roles in films like 'Mr. & Mrs. '55', 'Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi,' and 'Half Ticket', 'Howrah Bridge' and 'Kala Pani,' and the musical 'Barsaat Ki Raat.' Her portrayal of Anarkali in the historical epic drama 'Mughal-e-Azam' in 1960, earned her widespread acclaim. But, despite the fact that she eventually became an iconic actress, she had never received any national recognition or honour in her lifetime. Now, years after Madhubala's demise, her sister Madhur Bhushan, who along with her other sisters and family members making a biopic on the legendary actress, has expressed her disappointment and raised this question in an exclusive conversation with ETimes.
