Born on 23rd August 1944, Saira Banu is the real glamour queen of Bollywood.
Saira Banu was born to Indian actress Naseem Banu and producer Mian Ehsan-ul-haq. Despite spending a significant part of her childhood in London, she was interested in Bollywood and therefore could not stop herself when she was offered 'Junglee' in 1961 opposite the 'yahoo' star Shammi Kapoor.
She made her debut when she was only 17. Despite several hits, success did play hide and seek with Saira Banu as she lost many big films during her career because of rumours of her ill health.
