13-2-2011: Legendary Heroines of India Miniature Sheet
The film Raja Harishchandra is considered to be the first Indian film. Dadasaheb Phalke had to face many challenges while making his film. The most significant task was to find a woman who would become the heroine of the movie. None of the women agreed to act in the film. Then they had to cast a male actor to play the female role. So you can imagine how difficult it must have been for women to usher in a new era in Indian cinema. Celebrating Women’s Day, tribute has been paid to the legendary actresses of Indian cinema who created a revolution by taking Indian cinema in a new direction. Women have been a part of Indian stamps for decades. Mirabai was the first Indian woman on a postage stamp issued on 1st October 1952.
