Photos: 10 yesteryear actresses who are rarely spotted in public


Vyjayanthimala: One of the first female superstars of Hindi cinema, Vyjayanthimala featured in the biggest blockbusters of her era Naya Daur (1957), Sangam (1964) and Madhumati (1958). She even immortalised Chandramukhi on screen in Devdas (1955). Yet, Vyjayanthimala refused to sign films by the late 60s. She tied the knot in 1968 and shifted to Chennai. Vyjayanthimala dabbled in politics too, but apart from brief appearances here and there, she has rarely been spotted in public
