Mandakini (born July 30, 1969) is a former Bollywood actress. She had a brief, but controversial career in Hindi movies.

Early life

Mandakini was born in a British-Indian family in Meerut. Her father is British and her mother is Kashmiri.


Early career

At 16, she was cast in the lead role in Raj Kapoor's 1985 movie, Ram Teri Ganga Maili opposite his youngest son, Rajiv Kapoor. The movie was a hit, and it earned Mandakini a Filmfare nomination as Best Actress.[2] The film also caused a stir because of two scenes: one in which Mandakini bathes in a waterfall wearing only a flimsy white saree through which her breasts were clearly visible, and another in which she was shown breast-feeding a child. Some critics claimed that the scenes were vulgar and exploitative, and were used to get around the Indian Film Censor Board's stringent rules against nudity. Kapoor, as usual, defended the inclusion of the scenes stating that they were tasteful.

Mandakini acted in a few more successful films, such as Dance Dance, with Mithun Chakraborty and Pyaar Karke Dekho with Govinda, but never managed to recreate the success of her first movie.

Later career

Mandakini's career suffered a serious setback. She quit movies after Zordaar in 1996, and has lived in Mumbai Andheri since, with her husband and children. Since then, she has made attempts to reinvent herself. She released two pop music albums - No Vacancy and Shambala - neither of which was a success.

Currently, she runs classes in Tibetan yoga and is a follower of the Dalai Lama. Along with her husband, she runs a centre for Tibetan medicine, which is commonly known as the Tibetan Herbal Centre in the area.[3]

Personal life

As of 1990, Mandakini is married to a Buddhist monk, Dr. Kagyur T. Rinpoche Thakur with children.[4]
