February 9th turns out to be the birthday of actress Amrita Singh. Exquisite and pretty, Amrita Singh is the daughter of political activist Rukhsana Sultana and army officer Shavinder Singh. Her father is a relative of renowned novelist Khushwant Singh and this makes her background quite acknowledged to the world of media and entertainment.

Singh made her first appearance on the silver screen with the immensely successful film Betaab opposite Sunny Deol. She later went on to deliver a series of blockbuster super hits like Sunny, Mard , Saaheb, Chameli ki Shaadi, Naam and Khudgarz. Her string of successes led her to being addressed as a lucky pair opposite leads actors of the time like Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and even Amitabh Bachchan. During the 1990's she began to experiment with gray characters, for which she garnered much appreciation and critical acclaim. Such films included Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman in 1992 and Aaina in 1993 for which she received the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress award as well.

Even though her career was at its peak, she quit acting to get married to actor Saif Ali Khan, who was nearly 12 years younger to her at that time. This move was quite controversial; nevertheless, they tied the knot in 1993. Together, they have two children - daughter Sara and son Ibrahim. However, their relationship was on the rocks and finally they headed for divorce in 2004. Thereafter, she made her comeback to Bollywood with a few films like 23rd March 1981: Shaheed in which she played the mother of Bhagat Singh. She then played yet another negative role in Kalyug and mother roles in Dus Kahaniyaan and Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Lokhandwala. Exploring more diverse roles, she entered the small screen with television series Kkavyanjali in 2005, where she had a meaty and prominent role, and gave yet more love from audiences. However she didn't appear in any more shows post the closure of this show.

Currently, she is working for her upcoming YRF film Aurangzeb, opposite Jackey Shroff, which is set to release sometime this year. There is also a buzz that she is to play the mother of Arjun Kapoor in Karan Johar's forthcoming film 2 States. Well, we'll definitely have to wait and watch if there is something to these rumors and if we indeed with be seeing some more of her charismatic performances soon.

BollyCurry wishes Amrita a wonderful birthday and lots of success for her upcoming films!
