Deepti started her film career with the 1978 film ‘Junoon’. This film also received the Best Film Award this year. After this, Deepti became a distinct identity in the Hindi film industry from the 1981 film Chashme Baddoor. In her three-decade-long career, Deepti did dozens of such films, which proved to be a milestone for Hindi cinema. These include many films like ‘Once again’, ‘Untold’, ‘Tornado,’ Leela, ‘Firaq’.
Deepti, in addition to her film career, also made a lot of headlines about her personal life. She married film director Prakash Jha in 1985, but they divorced in 2002. Deepti Naval and Farrukh Sheikh worked together in many films like ‘Chashme Baddoor’, ‘Kisi Se Na Na Kehna’, ‘Saath Saath’ in the 80s. The audience loved their pair. It was said that both have special affection for each other. Stories of both of them were also revealed, but how much truth is there in these things, it cannot be said.
After her divorce from Prakash Jha, Deepti’s life brought Vinod Pandit, son of eminent classical singer Pandit Jasraj. It is said that they were also engaged, but Vinod Pandit died before marriage and thus Deepti was left alone again. Last year, Deepti was once again in the news when she shared a poem called ‘Black Wind’ on social media after the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, that at one time she was also suffering from depression. It was written, “A lot is going on in my mind during these crisis days. Sometimes the mind becomes very calm and sometimes distorted. Looking at the atmosphere of today, I felt that I should also share a poem among the people. I wrote this poem when I was also struggling with depression, anxiety, and thoughts like committing suicide. Or just say that she was fighting.
Let me tell you that Deepti wrote this poem on 28 July 1991. Some time ago in an interview, he told that in the 90s, he had very little work in films, so he had very negative thoughts in his mind.
