Yesteryear actor Mumtaz recently caught up with a few close friends and colleagues from the industry during her trip to India. The senior actress arrived in the city a few weeks ago and met her former co-star Dharmendra. The pictures of their meeting went viral. According to an ETimes report, Mumtaz had camped herself in a plush Colaba house where she enjoyed socialising either outdoors with a few of her close industry friends or indoors in her flat.
Mumtaz reportedly caught up with Asha Bhosle a few days before she left. She was accompanied by her sister, and the duo caught up with Asha Bhosle in the latter's Lonavla house. For the uninitiated, the legendary singer has been in Lonavla almost ever since Covid-19 struck the world last year.
Mumtaz confirmed meeting her dear friend Asha Bhosle and said, "It was a lot of fun meeting Ashaji after such a long time. We go back a long way and have been close friends. I stayed at Ashaji's Lonavla place for 2- 3 days. She made such lovely khaana for us, and mind you, she herself cooked."
Currently, Mumtaz is in Dubai with her daughter Natasha and son-in-law Fardeen Khan. She will later fly out to be with her husband Mayur Madhvani in Uganda.
Mumtaz made her acting debut at the age of 11 with the 1958 film Sone Ki Chidiya, but found fame with her 1969 film Do Raaste. She went on to become one of the most popular female actors in the Hindi film industry with films - Bandhan (1969), Aadmi Aur Insaan (1969), Sachaa Jhutha (1970), Khilona (1970), Tere Mere Sapne (1971), Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), and many more.
