Hindi cinema has surely changed in terms of content. From the heroines who used to grace the silver screen back then, to the heroes who used to look rawer, cinema now and then is surely different. As a matter of fact, today we can see many Bollywood beauties who willingly go bold on-screen. But honestly, back then, it was quite difficult to imagine bold scenes. But hey, exceptions are everywhere right? So, how many of you remember Simi Garewal in Mera Naam Joker. The bold scene she gave in the movie is still unforgettable, isn’t it? How many of you know about Simi Garewal’s bold scene in the movie?
It was Garewal’s bold scenes. In that simple and not so bold era, such scenes were quite unexpected. For the record, Mera Naam Joker which came in 1970 is considered as one of the best works of its time, although it was not much of a commercial success.
There is a scene in the movie where Simi Garewal can be seen changing her clothes, apparently in the bushes. Rishi Kapoor who played the young Raju in the movie can be seen looking at Simi Garewal while she changes her clothes.
For those who don’t know, Simi Garewal is one of the most well-known actresses of her time. She has worked in more than a dozen movies including Do Badan and Saathi. Interestingly, the actress has her birthday today!

Besides this, and the sensuously bold scene of Mandakini from Ram Teri Ganga Maili, it is quite difficult to recall any other movie with some on-screen boldness factor! If you try and compare the cinema now and then, you will find that it surely has evolved!
