Stars from the ramp
Shama Rana takes a look at the beauties and hunks of Bollywood who have made a smooth transition from the ramp to the silver screen

It is often said that beauty pageants and Bollywood canít exist without each other. Winning a beauty contest is a ticket to Bollywood, or even Tollywood (South Indiaís film industry). Modelling, a pre-requisite to these contests, is also a stepping-stone to the film industry.

M
adan Mohan, the mellifluous composer, who was born on June 25, 1924, in Baghdad, began his career as assistant to Anil Biswas and S. D. Burman. He started giving music independently with Aankheen in 1950. His pioneering style of composing ghazal-based film songs earned him the title of ghazal king.
