Veteran film actress Nanda Karnataki was a known name in Bollywood. She started her acting career at the age of five and was one of the highest paid actresses of her time. Nanda was the best friend of famous actress, Waheeda Rehman. Nanda’s pairing with actor Shashi Kapoor was a huge success. Even after gaining so much name and fame, she struggled in her personal life.

Nanda Karnataki made her acting debut in 1948 with the film Mandir. She worked from 1948 to 1956 as a child artist. Nanda got her breakthrough after her paternal uncle, the renowned film producer-director V Shantaram, cast her in a successful brother-sister saga, Toofan Aur Diya. Since then, she has never looked back.

As per reports, the actress’ career spanned over 30 years. She came into the limelight after appearing in the romantic drama film, Jab Jab Phool Khile alongside Shashi Kapoor.
