NUTAN ( 1936-1991 )

“Dil Na chaahe to bhi, Saathh sansaar mein ,
Chalnaa padtaa hai sab ki khushi ke liye ….”

Nutan Samrath , Daughter of noted Marathi actress Shobna Samrath, became Nutan Behl after she married Naval officer Rajnish Bahl in 1959.

In Films , Her USP was a combination of ,

(1) No shelter in make up

(2) Dress No issue; Could be even Rag Tag simple sarees .

(3) Sometimes , Unkempt hair and a goddess like look.

(5) Eyes conveying more than her spoken Dialogues in each frame.

(6) A face that was always malleable to human emotions .

Through her films , She presented the essence of Gracious  Indian womanhood. A woman who handles Joys and sorrows of her life with an inexplicable deftness .
For fans , she presented Extraordinary beauty and inner strength through her limber  frame .

Most of her roles matched her personality . I do not know whether she was choosy or roles came to her in a selective way. If she chose them , then surely, she was the most intelligent artist who had done her own *SWOT analysis .

I am informed that she rarely dyed her hair And her producers could not force it either .

She acted in more than 70 Hindi films. She will always be remembered for her towering roles in some films like Sujata (1959), Chhalia ( 1960 ) ,Bandini (1963), Milan (1967), Dil Hi To Hai ( 1963) Paying Guest ( 1957), Sone Ki Chidiya (1958), Anari (1959), Saraswatichandra (1968), Khaandaan(1965), Dil Ne Phir yaad Kiyaa (1966) , Me Tulsi Teray Aangan ki (1978), Seema (1955), Meharbaan ( 1967 ), Anuraag (1972) and Saudagar (1973).

About Nutan' s expressions on screen , Lata Ji once said,
" Her expressions come closest to suggest that she was genuinely singing a song herself. “
And to believe what Lata ji says , one needs simply to watch I her lip movement and expressions in the Classical song " Man-mohanaa Bade jhoothe" In “ SEEMA"

Apart from films, she kept herself busy with social work, running her family's Dairy Farm Business and singing Bhjajans in Satsangs( Spiritual gatherings) that she organised in her own house or attended these gatherings at other places. She had a melodious voice.

She died of an inoperable malignant growth that had spread to some other organs of hér body. Very Tragic and unfortunate end. Rest in peace Nutan ..None like you Anymore.. or Anywhere......
