Smita Patil (Marathi:?????? ?????) (October 17, 1955 – 13 December 1986) was a leading Indian actress from the 1970s to the 1980s in both Hindi and Marathi cinema.

Along with actresses like Shabana Azmi, she was one of the potent quartet representing India's parallel cinema. In a succession of landmark films like Manthan (1977), Bhumika (1977), Aakrosh (1980) and Chakra (1981).

Patil was also an active feminist (in a distinctly Indian context) and a member of the Women's Centre in Bombay. She was deeply committed to the advancement of women's issues, and gave her endorsement to films which sought to explore the role of women in traditional Indian society, their sexuality, and the changes facing the middle-class woman in an urban milieu.[1]

Smita Patil belongs to a generation of great actresses, including Suhasini Mulay and the aforementioned Shabana Azmi and, like them, is strongly associated with the radically political cinema of the 1970s. Her work includes films with parallel cinema directors like Shyam Benegal, Govind Nihalani and Mrinal Sen as well as forays into the more commercial Bollywood cinema of Bombay. Patil was working as a TV news reader and was also an accomplished photographer when Shyam Benegal discovered her.[2]

She was an alumna of the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune. In 1977, she won the National Award for 'Best Actress' for her performance in the Hindi film Bhumika. In her films, Patil's character often represents an intelligent femininity that stands in relief against the conventional background of male-dominated cinema (films like Bhumika, Umbartha, and Bazaar). Smita Patil was also a women's rights activist and became famous for her roles in films that portrayed women as capable and empowered.

As time went on, Patil moved away from her strictly "art house" reputation and, to the consternation of cinemaphiles, began to take parts in mainstream Bollywood extravaganzas.

"I remained committed to small cinema for about five years," Smita herself recalled. "I refused all commercial offers. Around 1977-78, the small cinema movement started picking up and they needed names. I was unceremoniously dropped from a couple of projects. This was a very subtle thing but it affected me a lot. I told myself that here I am and I have not bothered to make money. I have turned down big, commercial offers because of my commitment to small cinema and what have I got in return? If they want names I'll make a name for myself. So I started and took whatever came my way."

Initially her embarrassment showed as she mouthed corny dialogue, donned glitzy costumes and struck the archetypical Bollywood dance poses -- but soon her hard-core professionalism won out. In time she was accepted by commercial filmmakers and from Raj Khosla and Ramesh Sippy to B.R. Chopra, they all agreed that she was "excellent". Her fans, too, grew with her newfound stardom. Patil's glamorous roles in her more commercial films -- such as Shakti and Namak Halaal -- revealed the permeable boundaries between "serious" cinema and "Bollywood" masala in the Hindi film industry.

Her association with artistic cinema remained strong, however. Her arguably greatest (and unfortunately final) role came when Smita re-teamed with Ketan Mehta to play the feisty and fiery Sonbai in Mirch Masala (1987). Smita won raves for playing a spirited spice-factory worker who stands up against a lecherous petty official.

[edit] Personal life

Smita was the daughter of a government minister and a social-worker mother. Born in Pune, Maharashtra, she studied at a Marathi-language school. Her first tryst with the camera was as a television newscaster. Her dusky beauty and large eyes drew attention. Always a bit of a rebel, she would grin when people complimented her on looking lovely in the saris she sported for the telecasts because minutes before going on air, she would have hurriedly wrapped the sari over her jeans.

When Patil became romantically involved with the actor Raj Babbar, a much-married man who eventually left his present wife to marry Patil, she drew severe criticism from her fans and the media, clouding her personal life and throwing her into the eye of a media storm. Overnight, Patil was labeled a "home-breaker" and became the target of barbed criticism. "It was a nightmare for both Smita and Raj and looking back it was ultimately her dignified silence and restraint that becalmed those troubled times. Ushering in hope for a promising, new future -- but that was not to be." [3]


Smita died as a result of childbirth complications on December 13, 1986.

Nearly two decades later, one of India's greatest film directors, Mrinal Sen alleged that she died because of gross negligence.'"[4]

"She passed away even before she could cement her relationship with her just born son, Prateek," a 2002 remembrance noted. "Her son, now a strapping teenager, is not the only 'prateek' (symbol) of her memories. Smita has left behind a rich haul of films that showcase her enormous ability to offer us a glimpse into her soul each time she performed a role."[5]

Jim Carrey

Carrey was born in Newmarket, Ontario, the son of Kathleen (née Oram), a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant.[1][2] He has three older siblings, John, Patricia, and Rita. The family was Catholic[3] and of part French Canadian ancestry (as the original surname was Carré).[4] After the family moved to Scarborough when Carrey was 14, he attended Blessed Trinity Catholic School in North York for two years, before enrolling at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, Scarborough's oldest high school.

Carrey lived in Burlington, Ontario, for eight years and attended Aldershot High School. In a Hamilton Spectator interview (February 2007), Carrey remarks that "if his career in show business hadn't panned out he would probably be working today in Hamilton, Ontario at the Dofasco steel mill." When looking across the Burlington Bay towards Hamilton he could see the mills and thought "those were where the great jobs were." He already had experience working in a science testing facility Richmond Hill, Ontario, and was somewhat resigned to that career path.[5]

In 1990, Carrey's breakthrough came when he landed a starring comedic role on the hit television show In Living Color.

Start in comedy

In 1979, under the management of Leatrice Spevack, Carrey started doing stand-up comedy at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto, where he rose to become a headliner in February 1981, shortly after his 19th birthday. One reviewer in the Toronto Star[6] In the early 1980s, Carrey moved to Los Angeles and started working at The Comedy Store, where he was noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield liked Carrey's performance so much that he signed Carrey to open Dangerfield's tour performances.[citation needed] raved that Carrey was "a genuine star coming to life."

Carrey then turned his attention to the film and television industries, auditioning to be a cast member for 1980–1981 season of NBC's Saturday Night Live. Carrey was not selected for the position (although he did host the show in May 1996). Joel Schumacher had him audition for a role in D.C. Cab, though in the end, nothing ever came of it.[7] His first lead role on television was Skip Tarkenton, a young animation producer on NBC's short-lived The Duck Factory, airing from April 12, 1984, to July 11, 1984, and offering a behind-the-scenes look at the crew that produced a children's cartoon.[8]

Carrey continued working in smaller film and television roles, which led to a friendship with fellow comedian Damon Wayans, who co-starred with Carrey as a fellow extraterrestrial in 1989's Earth Girls Are Easy. When Wayans' brother Keenen began developing a sketch comedy show for Fox called In Living Color, Carrey was hired as a cast member, whose unusual characters included masochistic safety inspector Fire Marshall Bill (whose dangerous "safety tips" were the target of censors and watchdog groups who saw the character as a dangerous example for naive younger viewers[citation needed]), and masculine female bodybuilder Vera de Milo. His on-screen antics caught the eye of Hollywood.

Film career

Carrey made his film debut in a minor role in Rubberface (1983), which was known as Introducing...Janet at the time of release. Later that year, he won the leading role in Damian Lee's Canadian skiing comedy Copper Mountain, which included his impersonation of Sammy Davis Jr. Since the film had a less than one hour runtime consisting largely of musical performances by Rita Coolidge and Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins, it was not considered a genuine feature film. A few years later, Carrey saw his first major starring role in the dark comedy Once Bitten, in the role of Mark Kendall, a teen virgin pursued by a 400-year old female vampire (played by Lauren Hutton). After supporting roles in films such as Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), Earth Girls Are Easy (1988), and The Dead Pool (1988), Carrey did not experience true stardom until starring in the 1994 comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, which premiered only months before In Living Color1995 Golden Raspberry Award nomination as Worst New Star.[9] ended its run. The film was panned by critics, and earned Carrey a

However, the film was a huge commercial success, as were his two other starring roles from that year, in The Mask and Dumb and Dumber. In 1995, Carrey appeared as the Riddler in Batman Forever and reprised his role as Ace Ventura in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Both films were successful at the box office and earned Carrey multi-million-dollar paychecks.

Carrey earned twenty million dollars for his next film, The Cable Guy (directed by Ben Stiller), a record sum for a comedy actor. The attention drawn to the paycheck, coupled with some negative reviews, and the film's dark sensibility, all contributed[citation needed] to the film's mediocre earnings. Carrey quickly rebounded with the successful (and lighter) Liar Liar, a return to his trademark comedy style.

Carrey took a chance to play a more serious role (and a slight pay cut) to star in The Truman Show (1998), a change of pace that led to forecasts of Academy Award nominations. Although the movie was nominated for three other awards, Carrey did not personally receive a nomination, leading him to joke that "it's an honor just to be nominated...oh no," during his appearance on the Oscar telecast.[citation needed] However, Carrey did win a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama and an MTV Movie Award for Best Male Performance. That same year, Carrey appeared as a fictionalized version of himself on the final episode of Garry Shandling's The Larry Sanders Show, making an impression by ripping deliberately into Shandling's character.

In 1999, Carrey won the role of comedian Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. Other actors, including Edward Norton, were interested in the role, but Carrey's audition, including an act with the bongo drums Kaufman used in his performances, helped him to be cast[citation needed]. Despite critical acclaim, he was not nominated for an Academy Award, but again won a Best Actor Golden Globe award for the second consecutive year.

In 2000, Carrey reteamed with the Farrelly Brothers, who had directed him in Dumb and Dumber, in their comedy, Me, Myself & Irene, about a state trooper with multiple personalities who romances a woman played by Renée Zellweger. The film grossed $24 million dollars on its opening weekend and $90 million by the end of its domestic run.

In 2003, Carrey reteamed with Tom Shadyac for the financially successful comedy Bruce Almighty. Earning over $242 million in the U.S. and over $484 million worldwide, this film became the second highest grossing live-action comedy of all time.

His performance in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in 2004 earned high praise from critics,[10][11][12] who again predicted that Carrey would receive an Oscar nomination; the film did win for Best Original Screenplay, and costar Kate Winslet received an Oscar nomination for her performance. (Carrey was also nominated for a sixth Golden Globe for his performance).

In 2004, he played the villainous character Count Olaf in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which was based on the popular children's novels of the same name. In 2005, Carrey starred in a remake of Fun with Dick and Jane, playing Dick, a husband who loses his job after his company goes bankrupt.

In 2007, Carrey reunited with Joel Schumacher, director of Batman Forever, for The Number 23, a psychological thriller co-starring Virginia Madsen and Danny Huston. In the film, Carrey plays a man who becomes obsessed with an obscure book he believes is somehow based on his life.

Carrey is said to play Carnage in Spider-Man 4, although nothing has been confirmed.

Carrey has stated that he finds the prospect of reprising a character to be considerably less enticing than taking on a new role.[13] The only time he has reprised a role was with Ace Ventura. (Sequels to Bruce Almighty, Dumb and Dumber, Batman Forever, and The Mask have all been released without Carrey's involvement.)

Personal life

Carrey has been married twice, first to former actress and Comedy Store waitressSeptember 6, 1987). They were married on March 28, 1987, and were officially divorced in late 1995. After his separation from Womer in 1994, Carrey began dating his Dumb and Dumber co-star Lauren Holly. They were married on September 23, 1996; the marriage lasted less than a year. Carrey dated actress Renée Zellweger, whom he met on the set of Me, Myself & Irene, but their relationship ended in a broken engagement in December 2000. During 2004, Jim dated his massage therapist Tiffany O. Silver. In December 2005, Carrey began dating actress/model Jenny McCarthy. The pair have since denied engagement rumors.[14] In the May 2006 issue of Playboy Magazine (p. 48), it was mentioned that he has dated model Anine Bing. Melissa Womer, with whom he has a daughter, Jane Erin Carrey (b.

Carrey has a chipped tooth; for his role in Dumb and Dumber, he simply removed the tooth cap.[15] He owns a Gulfstream V. He drives a Saleen S7, it was the car he drove in Bruce Almighty when the character received God's powers.

Carrey is a vegetarian.[16] He attended a Presbyterian Church with his family in the early 1990s.[17] Carrey is a big fan of the death metal band Cannibal Corpse,[18], who made a cameo appearance in Ace Ventura. He is also a fan of Obituary, Pantera and Tom Petty.[citation needed] He is a huge fan of professional wrestling and is a fan of TNA star Kurt Angle.When Angle lost his Hair against hair match Carrey shaved his to support Angle. and the cartoons Johnny Bravo, Spongebob Squarepants, and Dave the Barbarian[citation needed] Carrey supports the West London football club Brentford FC after visiting a Hollywood cafe owned by a Brentford supporter.[citation needed]

Carrey received U.S. citizenship on October 7, 2004, and now maintains dual citizenship of the U.S. and his native Canada, where he has had a star on Canada's Walk of Fame[19] in Toronto since 1998.

He went public about his bouts with depression in a November 2004 interview on 60 Minutes.[20] Carrey has made calls to the public, by way of internet videos, to try to bring attention to the political suppression in Burma, especially of Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, whom he describes as a "hero of [his]". [21]

He was recently seen at the Super Bowl XLII.

Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri Dixit (Marathi: माधुरी दीक्षित) (born as Madhuri Shankar Dixit on May 15, 1967) is an award winning Indian Bollywood actress and one of the biggest stars of the Indian film industry. Throughout the late 1980s and 1990s, she dominated Hindi cinema as a leading actress, appearing in many hit films. She is considered to be an icon of the Bollywood film industry

Film career
Maduri Dixit made her acting debut in Abodh (1986). After a few minor and supporting roles the film which shot her to fame was the hit film
Tezaab (1988). She then went on to star in the hit films such as Ram Lakhan (1989), Parinda (1989), Tridev (1989), Kishen Kanhaiya (1990), Dil (1990), Saajan (1991), Beta (1992), Khalnayak (1993), the Bollywood blockbuster Hum Aapke Hain Kaun! (1994) and Raja (1995).
After a year of little success, she appeared as Pooja in the blockbuster
Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), for which she won her fourth Filmfare Best Actress Award.[2] In that same year, Dixit starred in Prakash Jha's critically acclaimed Mrityudand. The film straddled the boundary between an art and a commercial film. It won the Best Feature Film at the Cinéma Tout Ecran in Geneva, the Bangkok Film Festival and the Sansui Awards (Critics' Choice). Her performance in the film also landed her Best Actress awards at the Star Screen Awards and Sansui Awards.
Her dance sequences accompanying many famous Bollywood songs such as Ek Do Teen (from
Tezaab), Bada Dukh Diya (from Ram Lakhan), Dhak Dhak (from Beta), Chane Ke Kheth Mein (from Anjaam), Choli Ke Peechche (from Khalnayak), Akhiyan Milau (from Raja), Piya Ghar Aya (from Yaarana), Key Sera (from Pukar), Mar dala (from Devdas), and many others have received abundant critical acclaim.
In 2002, she starred in
Devdas, with actor Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Her performance was applauded and earned her a Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award. The film attracted worldwide attention and was featured at the Cannes Film Festival.[3].
The following year a film named after her, Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon!, was released
[4] in which a woman (played by Antara Mali) aspires to become the new Madhuri Dixit by trying her luck in the Bollywood industry.
February 25, 2006 she performed on stage for the first time in six years at the Filmfare Awards to music from her last movie Devdas.[5] Her performance was choreographed by Saroj Khan.
Madhuri Dixit has been the
muse for the famous Indian painter M.F. Hussain who considers her the epitome of the Indian woman. She also appeared in his film, Gaja Gamini (2000). The film was intended as a tribute to Dixit.[6]
December 7, 2006, Dixit returned to Mumbai along with her husband and sons to start filming for Aaja Nachle (2007).[7] The film released in November 2007 and despite the critics panning it, Dixit's performance was well received, with the New York Times commenting about her that "she's still got it".[8][9]
On Women's International Day in 2007, Dixit topped the list of the Best Bollywood Actresses Ever.

Personal life
Madhuri Dixit is a native of
Mumbai, India. She was born Madhuri Shankar Dixit to Shankar and Snehlata Dixit, of a Marathi Chitpavan Brahmin family. Dixit attended Parle College and wanted to be a micro-biologist.[11] She is trained as a Kathak dancer, in the Indian classical tradition.
She married an Indian-American, Dr. Sriram Madhav Nene, in
