This is the story of Leena Chandavarkar who entered the film industry as a teenager. By the age of 20, she was included in the list of top Bollywood actresses. In the next few years, she appeared in big hits like 'Humjoli', 'Mehboob Ki Mehndi', 'Manchali' and 'Bidaai'. Leena's father was an army officer and the actress was fond of films since childhood and this passion brought her to Bollywood.

Leena became a star overnight with her first film

Leena was about to debut in the year 1967 with the film 'Messiah' opposite Sunil Dutt, but finally she debuted in the year 1968 with 'Mann Ka Meet'. The film was a huge hit and Leena became a star overnight. However, she worked in only a few films and then she married Siddharth Bandodkar, who belonged to a political family of Goa.

Leena's family was not ready for her marriage with Kishore Kumar

However, before Leena could enjoy her new married life to the fullest, her husband Siddharth died in a tragic accident just a year after the wedding. After this, Leena was completely shattered and then slowly started getting closer to Kishore Kumar. They fell in love again but the family did not approve of this relationship at all. In fact, Kishore had already married three times and he was about 20 years older than Leena. The family was completely against this decision of Leena. When Leena married Kishore Kumar, she was 30 years old and Kishore was 50 years old.

Leena was one year old when Kishore Kumar got married for the first time

Kishore Kumar first married Ruma Guha Thakurta in 1951, when Leena was born. That means when Kishore Kumar first married, Leena would have been just one year old. The two separated in 1958 and then Kishore married Madhubala for the second time in 1960. In 1976, he married Yogita Bali and the two separated in 1978. Then in 1980, Leena came into Kishore's life, but this relationship was also not happy for the actress.

She is living with her son away from the film world.

Kishore Kumar died in 1987 and Leena became a widow again at the age of 37. She had a son Sumit Kumar from Kishore Kumar. However, Leena returned to films for some time and appeared in 'Mamta Ki Chhaon'. Now the actress lives in Mumbai, away from the limelight.
