Ameeta Biography, Age, Height, Family & More

A fan of Madhubala, Ameeta was enacting her idol’s sword fight from the movie Baadal when she caught the eye of Lekhraj Bhakhri, who signed her for his movie Thokar starring Shammi kapoor. This was her debut film in a side role where she was credited as Jayjaywanti. Qamar’s debut movie as heroine was a 1953 release, Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1954), directed by Vijay Bhatt. The screen name Ameeta made its appearance in this movie. The film failed, but Ameeta kept on working in films like Amar KirtanBadal Aur BijliBaaghi Sardar and Indrasabha. But her career took a positive turn when she worked with her idol Madhubala in Shirin Farhad (1956). She was then chosen for lead roles in Abhimaan and Zamana and Hum sab chor hai(1956) along with Shammi kapoor and Nalini Jaywant.Kannamba was born in Nandyal and lived in Karimnagar and Madras. She started acting in dramas at the age of 13. She performed many characters such as Sati Savitri, Anasuya and Chandramati.


The turning point in Ameeta’s career though came when she became the protégé of Filmistan Studios’ owner Tolaram Jalan who produced Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957) opposite Shammi kapoor, as a vehicle for promoting Ameeta as a new star. Great care was taken with her make-up, wardrobe and lighting, to present her in the most flattering and advantageous way possible. Furthermore, much of the film’s extensive publicity also centred on the actress. The film was a big success but Ameeta’s thunder was stolen by the until then struggling Shammi Kapoor. This got her the female lead of Goonj Uthi Shehnai, a role originally intended for Asha Parekh, with whom she had acted earlier in Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1954). The film starred a then up-and-coming Rajendra Kumar and an exceptional music score went on to become one of the top-grossing films of 1959. Here despite a mature and sensitive performance, Ameeta was overlooked and Kumar was given credit for the film’s emphatic success.
