What comes to your mind if I say, Begum Para? An image of sexy lady heading for the hottest photoshoot. Back in the time when actresses were all covered in the sarees from toe to head, it was Begum Para in 1951 who made everyone pop out their eyes by her bold photoshoot.
While wearing white saree and smoking a cigarette she gave ultra bold poses that she became popular with the names Bollywood’s First Bombshell and Pin Up Girl. In her times in the 1950s, she was considered a glamour girl of Bollywood, so much so, that Life magazine had a special session with her devoted to her fine sensuous photographs.
She was married to Dilip Kumar’s younger brother Nasir Khan and had 3 children including actor Ayub Khan. So how is she related to Taimur Ali Khan?
Yes, did you know she has an interesting relationship with Taimur Ali Khan, the son of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan? Actually, Saif Ali Khan’s first wife Amrita Singh is the granddaughter of Zarina Sultana. Amrita is Zarina’s daughter Rukhsana Sultana‘s daughter.
Begum Para was Zarina Sultana’s real sister. Means, actor Ayub Khan is the uncle of Amrita Singh. The irony is he is younger than her. So by all this big circle of relations, it is concluded that Taimur Ali Khan is the step great grandson of Begum Para. She died in her sleep on 9 December 2008 at the age of 81.
