Default A Bollywood heroine & the Royal Enfield

Couldn't find anyplace to post this so am making a new thread. Thought some of you guys may like this - UK magazine "Classic Bike Guide" prints a neat, tastefully-done sketch on its last page of good-looking women & vintage motorcycles. This month's issue had the following art-work. So ... does the lady look like any Bollywood heroine from the 1950s-70s period?

Hi.
Looks very close to Saira Banu .
The hair style with bouffant was definitely the 1960s look.
Incidentally most of the heroines of that era were on the plump side rather than the slim side.Specially the ones who migrated from Madras film industry.
Regards
PS:Saw your profile.Quite a few of us are fans of military history specially WW II.

Yeah, does look somewhat like Saira Banu. And you're right - this heroine looks a bit too modern-slim to be the stereotypical 1950s-60s "well-padded" type!

Good catch on military history - my interest in that field stemming from growing up in the military, dad was an officer in the Indian Army.
