PICTURE PERFECT M8
think there has been a beauty quite like Nutan. She is my all-
time favorite face. She was a poetess and a composer. She was
multilingual; she knew French, English, Hindi, Marathi and
many more languages. She said people her age in India didn’t
get the kind of roles like Katharine Hepburn or Meryl Streep
[did]. She said it was better to shut shop than doing the same
single dimensional maternal roles. I knew her for a long time. I
like this shot, as it was among her last pictures.
think she is versatile, wonderful at heart,
a great cook and absolutely indefatigable. At almost 78,
she has the spirit of an 18-year-old or 8-year-old. She
has tremendous zest to keep doing something. I adore
and admire her.
PHOTOGRAPHS: GAU TAM RAJADHYAKSHA
is India’s ultimate cover girl. She is
extremely hard working, and takes a
lot of pain over every single picture.
No photograph of hers is a mistake.
I think stars like her, who take so
much trouble to be in the public eye,
deserve to be loved and treated like
legends. She is wonderful human
being, extremely sensitive and a very
good friend. She is really quite a shy
and private person.
