Actually, as much as Sharmila was in the discussion about her films, she also got limelight about her personal life. She has always been considered an actress far ahead of her times. This is because when most of the beauties preferred to come on screen wearing elegant clothes, then Kareena’s mother-in-law had crossed all limits to look bold. Her move not only created a ruckus in the B-Town corridor, but the actress had to hold a meeting in the Parliament House. (All photos – Indiatimes)
Became the first bikini girl
Actually, this whole story is from the year 1996, when Sharmila Tagore, who ruled the hearts of fans, was known for her calm nature. However, the biggest reason behind this is because she was seen in a very simple style in each of her films. In such a situation, when she got her photoshoot done in bikini and swimsuit for her movie ‘An Evening in Paris’, everyone was surprised.
Just before the release of the film, Sharmila was seen posing in a bikini for the cover page of the August issue of Filmfare magazine, after which the controversy escalated to such an extent that the issue was raised in Parliament as well.

Had to listen to people’s taunts
In the live session of the Ladies Study Group of the Indian Chambers of Commerce, when Sharmila was asked a question related to this photoshoot, she said, ‘Oh my God! Our society was very conservative at that time. I have no idea why I did this? While some people taunted me, others accused me of getting cheap limelight. I hate this the most. At that time I was young and wanted to do something new and exciting. But I understood one thing during this time that if you are a public figure, then you have some responsibilities.
You have to understand who your audience is. What does he want from you? I learned from this incident that people are attracted towards glamour, but they have no respect for it. I wanted to be respected, so I slowly started changing my image. I also played the role of mother in the film Aradhana, after which my popularity increased as before.
