Dimple Kapadia is one of the most versatile actors in the Bollywood film industry. Since making her debut at the age of 16, the gorgeous actor went on to play multi-faceted roles and numerous highly intriguing characters on screen. With about 80 films and many accolades in her kitty, Dimple Kapadia's successful run proved that there is much more to her than a charming face and her gorgeous tresses. Having said that, let us relive some of the actor's most outstanding performances on the big screen:
Dimple Kapadia made her Bollywood debut with the film Bobby where she was paired opposite Rishi Kapoor in a Raj Kapoor film. Dimple Kapadia made a mark in her very first film and took the industry by storm with this massive hit which earned her a Filmfare Award for Best Actress. Dimple also became a trendsetter after sporting a white polka-dotted shirt with a black mini skirt in the film, which became a wardrobe must-have for all the girls at the time. The polka dots were also famously renamed to “Bobby print” in India after the film came out. Bobby still remains fresh in the minds of people four decades later.
