Tanuja (JamActor of India)

Friday, December 16, 2011


Tanuja was born in Mumbai into a family of four children as Tanuja Samarth to poet Kumarsen Samarth and his wife Shobhna Samarth. Her mother was a famous 1930s and 1940s actress. When she was very young her parents separated. Tanuja entered films as a child actress and continued working until 1973. She met director Shomu Mukherjee on the set of Ek Baar Muskara Do. A whirlwind romance ended in a 1973 marriage. They had two children: Kajol Mukherjee (b. 1975) and Tanisha Mukherjee (b. 1978). They were later divorced.

The younger sister of Nutan and one of the daughters of '40s actress Shobhana Samarth, Tanuja was known for her tomboyish behaviour on the sets, and a rebel image. Unlike most heroines, she refused to play games and chase after roles. If inspite of that, she was successful, only due to her talent. Her films included 'Jeene ki Raah', 'Jeeo aur Jeene Do', 'Do Chor', 'Mome ki Gudiya', 'Mere Jeevan Saathi', 'Humshakal', 'Imitihan' and the most successful of them all, 'Haathi Mere Saathi'.

She was among the rare heroines who smoked but did not hide the ever-burning cigarette in her hand, and never disguised her whiskey in a bottle of Coca Cola, like most heroines of '60s did. Tanu had acquired this boldness from her grandmother who was as open about her relationship with Motilal. This openness did cause her heartbreaks but she finally settled down in marriage with Shomu Mukherjee. The marriage was certainly stormy and when she played the wife of a busy journalist in 'Anubhav' there were comparisons. Tanuja happily shifted to character roles. Her daughter Kajol, the third generation of actress, continues the tradition.
