Madhubala’s Rare Colour Photo

My earliest memory of the beautiful actress Madhubala was the song accha ji main haari with Dev Anand , which aired on Doordarshan on a balmy Sunday morning. The legendary Mughal A Azam was seen much later.

Also remember her iconic B&W poster on the walls of the computer center where I used to go for classes as a teenager. That image, for me, was always the enduring image of that ethereal beauty…

Until this ‘rare colour photo’ started doing the rounds on twitter. Beautiful!

P.S: the photo was taken by James Burke for Life Magazine, in 1951. [Source]
