Hindi Movie Actress Madhubala in White Sari - Photo shoot by James Burke in 1951

Madhubala (1933 - 1969) was one of the popular Hindi movie actresses of 1950's and 60's. She acted in various superhit and classic movies like Mahal (1949), Mr. & Mrs. '55 (1955), Howrah Bridge (1958), Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958), Mughal-E-Azam (1960), Half Ticket (1962) etc.

These beautiful photographs were taken by James Burke for Life Magazine. The Life archive hosted by Google wrongly documented the date of these photographs as 1941, but probably these photos were taken in 1951.
