We all know Babu Bhaiya of Bollywood i.e., Paresh Rawal, but do you know about his beautiful wife Swaroop Sampat?
Swaroop was born on November 3, 1958. Swaroop won the title of Miss India in 1979.
She met Paresh Rawal in 1975. Both of them studied in the same college. On seeing Swaroop, Paresh told his friend that he will marry this girl. Swaroop also liked Paresh’s style.
Both of them were interested in theater acting. After seeing Paresh’s act on stage, she was so impressed that she went to him and befriended him. The two married in 1987 at the Laxminarayan Temple Compound, Mumbai.
Swaroop Sampat has also been an actress. We have seen her in films like ‘Naram Garam’ (1981), ‘Himmatwala’ (1983), ‘Karishmaa’ (1984) and ‘Saathiya’ (2002). In the movie ‘Karishmaa, she surprised everyone with her perfect figure.
