Hindi film actress Sadhana Singh shot to fame after she played the role of Gunja, a lively girl in ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’, a hit film of the early 1980s. The Suraj Barjatya film was the story of a sweet and simple girl who belonged to a small village in Uttar Pradesh. In 1994, Rajshri Productions remade this film as ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ which too was a blockbuster at the box office.
Sadhana Singh gained a lot of popularity for this film. Everywhere she went, she was called by the name Gunja. According to media reports, the people of the village where ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’ was shot were so touched by the film that they had tears in their eyes when the shooting was over.
Some other films that Sadhana Singh was seen in are ‘Tulsi’, ‘Aurat’, ‘Pathhar’, ‘Sasural’ and ‘Paapi Sansaar’. Apart from being a beautiful actress, she was an amazing singer as well and sang a number of Hindi songs. However, after garnering immense success in Bollywood, the actress took herself away from the glamour world all of a sudden and got busy with married life. At that time, she had said that Bollywood was not making the kind of films she wanted to do.
After 35 years since ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’, perhaps not many people know what Sadhana Singh has been doing all this while and how she looks now. But the secret of how she looks is finally out as the yesteryear actress has shared some of her pictures on Facebook.
