Parveen Babi

She was an icon, far ahead of her times, Parveen Babi epitomized the classic good looks of western sensibilities. Rocking glamourous outfits, Parveen was the opposite of a traditional film heroine. She was neither helpless and neither was she virtuous. There was never a heroine like her and never will there be again. This is her controversial life in pictures.
