SILK SMITHA-- THE QUEEN OF THEM ALL
This post is for my foreign readers who form 85% of my readership base.
Check out what you don't get to see in Hollywood movies-- song- dance- the works!! Indian women have wide hipbones.
You will notice that Indian songs are melodious , dance is graceful and does not involve gymnastics, jumping cartwheels and acrobatics- if we need to see jumping jacks we can go to a circus -right?.
In India if a movie must be a hit, there must be at least one good song dance number.
The queen of the item number dancers was SILK SMITHA. She acted in more than 500 movies. She was paid more than the heroine as she guaranteed a mega hit.
After 18 years of dancing her way into the hearts of movie goers, she committed suicide.
This one is a mournful song-- parting is such sweet sorrow-
