Smita Patil

Smita Patil in a dramatic moment with Rakesh Roshan in the Bollywood film "Aakhir Kyon".

Here is a list of her other films :
I recommend Mirch Masala ( "Spices" ) if you can find it. In this film, directed by Ketan Mehta, she opened a new door for actresses in Indian cinema, by playing the role of a woman who fights back against male chauvanism- her weapon of choice? hot pepper powder!! (sadly, she passed away in 1986 due to "complications after childbirth" , but her memory survives to this day through her incredible films)
