Shabana Azmi: Bridging the Gap Between Parallel and Commercial Cinema

Shabana Azmi is an Indian actor who has worked in many films, television and theatre.

Shabana Azmi is one of the finest actors of our time. From the quintessential to unconventional roles, Shabana has never held back from a heterogeneous career.
