Amol Took Me Seriously - Bindiya Goswami
Bindiya was discovered at a party, when she was just fourteen years old, by Hema Malini's mother. She felt that Bindiya had a resemblance to Hema and recommended her to film producers. Her first Hindi film was "Jeevan Jyoti" where she co-starred with Vijay Arora whose career was on the decline and the film flopped. Bindiya forged on ahead and soon became a success starring for director Basu Chatterjee in Khatta Meetha (1977) and Prem Vivah (1979). However, her biggest hit was for director Hrishikesh Mukherjee in the comedy Gol Maal (1979). That film's success led her to a role opposite Shashi Kapoor in the big-budget film Shaan (1980). However, the movie was declared as 'average', but Bindiya Goswami's role was not noticed. She also appeared in the popular film Dada (1979) alongside Vinod Mehra.
Career as costume designer
Bindiya has taken up designing costumes for female stars such as Rani Mukherjee, Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai for her husband J.P. Dutta's films, such as Border (1997), Refugee (2000), LOC Kargil (2003) and Umrao Jaan (2007).
Personal life and education
Bindiya was born in Kaman, Bharatpur (Rajasthan) to Shri Venugopal Goswami, a South Indian father, and Dolly, a Catholic mother. Her father was a priest of Vallabh Sampraday and married 7 times in his lifetime. Bindiya was married to her frequent co-star Vinod Mehra, but they divorced after four years of marriage. Thereafter, Bindiya gave up her acting career to marry director J.P. Dutta in 1985, with whom she has two daughters, Nidhi and Siddhi. Her daughter Nidhi is following in her mother's footsteps by becoming an actress.
