Zaheeda Zaheera - Indian 'Angel of Death'




Zaheeda Zaheera (credited as Zara) in her debut film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1969).
She played the role of Indian 'Angel of Death' in this Bond flick.
Later went on to work opposite Dev Anand in a movies like 'Prem Pujari' and 'Gambler' but missed the top spot probably because she refused to play Dev Anand's sister in 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna'.
