Moushumi Chatterjee is a Bollywood actress, who has also acted in Bengali cinema. Her on-screen pairings with actors like Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Jeetendra, Sanjeev Kumar and Vinod Mehra were popular. She was the third highest paid Hindi actress in 1973-1984. She was born on 26 April 1948 in Kolkata. In 2005, she was thrilled when director Tarun Majumdar', who had introduced her to films in Balika Badhu (1967) decided to introduce her younger daughter Megha in his next Bengali film "Bhalobasar Anek Naam". Her older daughter Payal has made a name for herself behind the camera as the creative head at the Prime Channel, which oversees television shows. In middle age, Moushumi has accepted new challenges as playing a dual role in Tanuja Chandra's Zindaggi Rocks (2006) and crossed over to Canada to act in Bollywood/Hollywood (2002) for which she received a Genie Best Supporting Actress nomination. In 2016, she received the Filmfare Award for Lifetime Achievement.

She was on the top of her career in the 70s and early 80s, such as Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Jitendra. She received Filmfare nominations as Best Actress for Anuraag (1972) where she played a blind girl, and as Best Supporting Actress for Roti Kapda Aur Makaan (1974) where she played a rape survivor. She still acts in movies, but not at the same pace as earlier in her career.
