Filmfare, one of the most popular entertainment magazines in India, has been providing all the information about Indian film actors including their weddings, love affairs, etc.
Launched in 1952, Filmfare has enthralled us with its covers, which often portrayed leading actors. Since 1954, it started giving popular film awards, the annual Filmfare Awards and Filmfare Awards South.
WittyFeed brings you a rare collection of Filmfare magazine covers when Nargis, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Madhubala, and Nutan ruled the silver screen. These covers portray the simplistic beauty of the Mumbai film industry of the 1950s and 1960s.
Through these covers, we wish to touch the sentiment of that era. They are nostalgic and worth remembering. So, go through them and bask in the old times they project.
This series of Filmfare covers will make you hum the love-bitten tracks of 'Ek ladki bheegi bhaagi si', 'Yeh raatein, yeh mausam', and many more.
