Anita Guha Biography
Anita Guha was an Indian actress who usually played mythological characters in films. She became most famous for playing the title role in "Jai Santoshi Maa" (1975). Previously, she had played Sita in other mythological films "Sampoorna Ramayana" (1961), "Shree Ram Bharat milap" (1965) and, "Tulsi vivah" (1971).

She came to Mumbai in the 1950s as a beauty pageant contestant, when she was 15 years old. She became an actress there and made her film debut in "Tangewali" (1955). She moved onto hit films like "Sharada" (1957).

But it was her title role in "Jai Santoshi Maa" (1975) that brought her the most fame. She had never even heard of goddess Santoshi until she was offered the role, as this was a little-known goddesss. It was only a guest appearance, and her scenes were shot 10-12 days. She fasted during the shooting.
 The low-budget pic was a surprise hit, and broke box office records while becoming a cultural phenomenon. The goddess Santoshi now became a famous goddess, and women all over India worshipped her. People treated the movie theatres showing "Jai Santoshi Maa" as a temple, bringing offerings of food, leaving slippers at the door. Guha claimed that people came to her asking her to bless them, as they perceived her to be a real goddess. Oddly, she never became a devotee of the goddess herself, claiming that she was a devotee of Kali Maa.

Other mythological films she acted in include "Dekh Kabira roya" (1957), "Kavi Kalidas (1959) "Jai Dwarkadesh" (1977) and "Krishna Krishna" (1986). She wasn't happy that she became typecast as a mythological actress, because acting offers eventually stopped coming her way.

Her earlier credits include period films such as "Sangeet samrat Tansen" (1962), "Kan kan mein bhagwan" (1963), "Veer Bhimsen" (1964). She played Rajesh Khanna's adoptive mother in the huge hit "Aradhana" (1969).

She was married to actor Manik Dutt; they had no children. After her husband's death, she lived alone in Mumbai where she died of cardiac failure on June 20, 2007.The actress, who was in her 70s and was ailing for some time, died at a private hospital in Mumbai.

Guha counted yesteryear's actresses Mala Sinha and Helen among her friends. Enquiries at Mala Sinha's home revealed that she attended Guha's last rites.
