Yash Chopra's film gave Babi her breakout role: Anita becomes more than Vijay's (Amitabh Bachchan) lover in Deewaar; she becomes the keeper of his conscience, and supports him in his arduous struggle.
Babi played Jenny opposite Amitabh Bachchan's Anthony in this Manmohan Desai separated-at-birth masala film
For a change, Babi was cast not opposite Amitabh Bachchan but Shashi Kapoor, playing the journalist Anita in the Yash Chopra directorial.
Babi played Anu, the romantic interest of Shashi Kapoor's Kishan, in the Manmohan Desai action film about brothers who were separated at birth.
In the Ramesh Sippy film, Babi played Sunita, a glamourous singer who executes robberies whilst bystanders are bedazzled by her charm.
Babi was directed by Tinnu Anand in the role of Shalini, a young woman who was kidnapped as a child and whose reunion with her father becomes one of the focal points of the film's plot.
Nobody who has seen it can forget Babi's performance to "Jawaani Janeman", nor the ingeniousness of Prakash Mehra to cast her as an assassin who has a change of heart.
