  • FORTIES
  • 2000
    Age 44
    Her final two movies were Jatti da vair in 2000 and Ik dhee punjab di (Daughter of Punjab), they were a huge hit.
    More Details Hide Details Anjuman was about 175 cm (5 feet and 9 inches), taller than any other Lollywood heroine of that era. Due to her height and figure she remained very popular in Punjabi cinema viewers. Her departure may have been a crushing blow to many of her die hard fans, who admired the thumkas (pelvic thrusting dance manoeuvres) of Anjuman. In the mid 1980s, Sultan Rahi, Mustafa Qureshi and Anjuman dominated the industry to such an extent that a film was not considered a viable project unless they were present. Film after film was launched with all the three stars, with different names, but merely repeating their roles from the previous efforts. Nonetheless, the public lapped it up and all three became icons of an era. Action was the essential element of the Punjabi films; Sultan Rahi gained a reputation as an action hero but in many films Anjuman herself played an action heroine. The audience saw her fighting with bad guys and displaying her powers along with her dances simultaneously in those movies. Some of her action films include Hunter wali, Dulari, Qatil haseena, Daku Haseena, Kali Charn, Sultana, Nangi Talwar, etc.
    Her next release was Jag mahi, opposite similarly dinosauric Ghulam Mohiuddin, in 2000.
    More Details Hide Details It had a tepid response and barely lasted a few weeks playing to largely empty halls. Anjuman's next release was a litmus test of sorts and this she failed disastrously. The film Peengan opposite Saud was met with derision. Audiences started shouting slogans of Maan puttar (Mother and Son) and Buddhee ghori laal lagaam during the film. Yet, she refused to change her stance on character roles, as well as the size of her pay check. Suddenly, the industry began to mutter about Anjuman being a kiss of death if she was in the romantic lead. There was much depression in her household as news spread through the industry that distributors had announced they would not be handling any film starring Anjuman for fear of financial loss. The producers with whom she had already signed suffered enormous losses. A few films which had been partly completed were recalled by the producers and shorn of any Anjuman involvement.
  • 1999
    Age 43
    Anjuman returned to acting in 1999 in the title role in the film Chaudrani.
    More Details Hide Details The adoring masses welcomed their beloved Queen home and lifted Chaudrani to considerable success upon its release but soon the golden touch began to fade. Anjuman, however, perceived Chaudranis success as vindication of everything she had planned. She refused any further character roles, opting only for solo heroine projects and required a lofty salary of Rs. 300,000. She felt that she was in a position to be calling all the shots, but in any film industry you are only as good as your last hit and she was soon to taste the vagaries of stardom.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1973
    Age 17
    Her career spanned almost 20 years and she appeared in more than 300 films She first appeared in the Urdu film, Soorath co-starring with Waseem Abbas, Afshan, Taj Niazi, in 1973 and she gave her last appearance in 2000 in the film Peengan.Soorath was not a success; her first major hit was Waadey ki zanjeer (1979).
    More Details Hide Details She had major roles in Sher Khan and Chan Varyam and played a supporting role in Sala sahib. All three films were diamond jubilee hits and were released the same day, a unique record, which she shared with her partner hero Sultan Rahi, her playback voice (singer) Melody Queen Madam Noor Jehan, and musician Wajahat Attre. Anjuman was a darling of the working classes, who went to the cinema frequently. She could dance according to their taste and she had the figure of a traditional Punjabi mutyaar, which is the ideal of adult males, especially in Punjab. She appeared with every hero of her era but with Sultan Rahi she ruled the Punjabi cinema for more than a decade. She also appeared with Ali Ijaz, Javed Sheikh, Ghulam Mohiuddin, Izhar Qazi and Nadeem. Her initial films were in Urdu but the bulk of her career was based on acting in Punjabi films. Her roles ranged from a traditional innocent village girl to modern sexy bombshell, romance to action packed.
