Zareena Wahab is an Indian actress who could portray any type of characters with extreme
acting talents.She was trained from the prestigious Film and T.V. Institute atPune which is governed by Government of India and was of the  1973 batch.
After coming out of the Institute she could act in a film of Dev Anand 'Ishq Ishq Ishq' in 1974
with Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman but as if a star near the  Full moon her presence was not
noted and felt.
Next year in 1975 she could act in a film 'Anokha'.
In the year 1976 a film 'Chit Chor' was released all over India which was produced by 'Rajashree Productions', the production house which always promoted fantastic artistic films only.
'Chit Chor' means one who stole the heart and it was true in the case of the pair 'Amol Palekar and Zarina Wahab' that they literally stole the heart of all Indians by that film.The director and 
other technicians have their contributions for that achievement.But the natural way of acting
displayed by both Amol Palekar and Zarina Wahab were  very much appreciated.There was one
more person who stole the hearts of millions of Indians through the film 'Chit Chor' none other than the pride of Kerala Shri.K.J.Yesudas.All the songs of this picture which the music composed by Ravindra Jain are  having charismatic qualities that  they are still enjoyed by a large
mass of people.
In 1977 Zarina Wahab was very much lucky to act with M.G.R. for his film 'Nava Rathinam' in 
which nine heroines appeared in that.The film was directed by A.P.Nagarajan and was a super
duper hit.
In  1978 she had a film with 'Sanjeev Kumar' which was a well noted film of director Basu Chatterjee in the name 'Tumhare Liye'
In 1979 she appeared in a Malayalam film 'Madanolsavam' which was directed by N.Sankaran Nair in which Kamal Hassan was the hero.This charismatic film with the fine photography and
beautiful location,excellent acting skills presented by all actors especially Kamal Hassan and
Zarina, fantastic melodious songs composed by Salil Dada all made it a celebration by Malayalis.
In 1979 she  had to her credit one more super hit film 'Sawan ko Aane Do'.
The director who made a new path of film making 'Bharathan' who possessed a brilliant
vision and look out utilized Zarina Wahab for his 1980 Malayalam  film 'Chamaram' and 1981 film 'Palangal'.Both those films in which Nedumudi Venu was in key roles received accolodes

and good opinions from critics of course  for Zarina also.

In 81 , 82  and 85 she appeared in several pictures in Malayalam like,Sara Varsham,Enthino Pookkunna Pookkal,Manassariyathe,Punnaram Cholli Cholli etc.Out of these the romance
of Rahman and Zarina Wahab in 'Punnaram Cholli Cholli' directed by Priya Darshan was
quite interesting.
In 2009 she appeared in a Malayalam  film calendar and in 2010 she acted in another  Malayalam film 'Aagathan'.It was directed by Kamal and Dilip was the hero.
She could act in the blockbuster film of 2010 'My name is Khan' in which the one and only 'Sharukh Khan' was the hero   and  she also exhibited fantastic acting skill along with him.
She made her presence strongly felt in the 2010  Malayalam film 'Aadaminte Makan Abu'
which earned National award for Best actor for 'Salim Kumar'.
In 2012 she acted in the film 'Agneepath' in which Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra acted in Main roles.
Zarina Wahab was born in Visakhapattanam in a Muslim family on 17 July 1959.Let us
hope for many more excellent contributions from her.
