Nutan's birthday (she'd be an old lady now!)

Publié le 4 Juin 2012

Hallo all Nutan lovers (Harvey and Bollywooddeewana, especially!)

I have been reminded by the above Nutan afficionadoes (like tornadoes?!) that aaj yeh Nutan ki janmadin hai (check Harvey's correction of my hindi in the messages section!!), so I thought: what can Letstalkaboutbollywood do to follow suit? Well, I have a number of photos from films which I haven't put on the side banner because of various reasons, and I thought you would like to see them! Here's my contribution to her greatness, loveliness and everlastingness:

Sone ki chidiya

Dil hi to hai

DeathbedI don't know where I got this last one, but my caption says "deathbed" - well, why not after all?

Ah! J'adore Nutan! Elle est tres belle mais aussi une bonne actrice! J'aimait (c'est correct?) elle a Tere ghar ke saamne :D

Hi Neha! Congrats on your efforts with the French!! Are you learning it? It's all good except for the verb: "je l'ai aimée dans TGKS" or you could say "Je l'ai beaucoup aimée dans TGKS"!

I too am enraptured by Nutan (you probably know that if you come to this blog!) - she's .... she's... well, she's.... what today's actresses should aspire to!! (I don't know what today's
actresses aspire to).

What a nice way to celebrate her birthday, Yves, and what a lovely, lovely collection of photographs! I loved the third one - where she's pouting. She looks incredibly cute.

The last one looks like it was taken at her funeral.

Thanks Anu, it's very kind of you to say that. Yes, I know the last one is rather surprizing, but I just wanted people's opinion on it. I had it in my files, but strangely I cannot find it again
on the Internet. I wonder if the site where I must have found it has shut down?

While learning a new language some people like to be corrected, others feel discouraged by it. I hoped you belong to the former group! Glad to know that I wasn't wrong.

yves 05/06/2012 23:59

You certainly weren't! Thanks for the encouragement!

harvey 05/06/2012 22:01

I hope you don't mind if I correct you.

You have written: aaj yeh Nutan ki janamdin hai. This makes it sound like: Today is this Nutan's birthday. That is why we don't need the word 'yeh' (yeh = this) and janamdin is masculine (days
are masculine in Hindi, are they female in French?) that is why Nutan ka janamdin.

So the right line would be 'aaj Nutan ka janamdin hai'

I appreciate the fact that you tried to write a sentence in Hindi, a language that is foreign to you.

yves 05/06/2012 23:15

No, I don't mind at all Harvey, thanks a lot for correcting! I'm learning Hindi little by little, and I appreciate corrections, because they right the pieces of this giant puzzle! In French, it's
the same, the nouns have a gender which foreigners spend a long time trying to remember (for example a table is feminine, whereas in German it's masculine), but the little "of" word (ka or ki, or
ke) doesn't change, hence my mistake I suppose.

So just for the hindi purists, I'll indicate my mistake and its corrections in the body of the message!

A surprising post on the birthday of our favourite actress!
I was wondering from where you got the last pic, but you say, you don't know its origin. maybe it is really from her funeral!

Thank you Yves for this whole range of hidden treasure trove of pics!

yves 05/06/2012 23:30

Yes, as you noticed, I went to your blog, and seeing that great post on Nutan duets, I told myself that you were right to celebrate. Then I was attracted to BD's post as well, and this was the
clincher: I told myself I had to join the chorus!

And that picture of Nutan's deathbed is a mystery, because I can't find it on Google's image search...

Thank you for these, Yves! I liked nearly all of them a lot (except, perhaps, that last one...), but the third one - Nutan making a face - was especially cute.

yves 05/06/2012 17:06

Thanks Madhu, and you give me an idea, next time I could try and collect all the "funny" pictures of Nutan can think of; when given a chance, she was quite a clown, and has a very expressive
