Vimi Biography, Age, Height, Family & More
Vimi (1943 – 22 August 1977) was an Indian film actress who acted in Indian films such as Aabroo, Hamraaz and Patanga. She starred with Sunil Dutt in Hamraaz and became notable.
Vimi was a Punjabi Sikh girl who married Shiv Agarwal, son of an Industrialist, with whom she had one son and one daughter. Music Director Ravi got introduced to her at a party in Calcutta and later invited her and Shiv to Mumbai. He introduced them to B. R. Chopra and that is how Vimi got her first film.
As Sunil Dutt sang to her (“Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jeeo, Na Munh Chhupako Jeeo”), the enchanting image of Vimi won the viewers’ hearts.
Soon after the success of Humraaz, her next big project Aabroo was released in 1968. This film, however, bombed at the box office. Even veteran actors like Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy who were also the part of the film couldn’t do much to save it.
After the failure of Aabroo things went downward spiral for Vimi who was now reduced to pose for photoshoots in magazines. Patanga, her 1971 film with Shashi Kapoor, also failed to strike a chord with the audience. Thus after successive flop films, she went into oblivion.
In an obituary released after her death, several hostile details were revealed which included her being physically abused by her husband and their eventual separation. Following her separation, she started a textile business in Calcutta but that too failed miserably. Devastated by her professional and personal life, Vimi took refuge in alcohol. As her money started dwindling, it is said that she also turned towards prostitution just to buy drinks to feed her craving.
Finally after a tumultuous and tragic life, Vimi died on 22 August 1977 due to liver disease in the general ward of Nanavati hospital. Her body was taken to the crematorium in a thela hand cart.
