Kamini Kaushal’s filmography provided by : Shri Harish raghuwanshi
Kamini Kaushal spoke in detail about her professional and personal life during our meeting at her Nepean Sea Road residence. Kamini Kaushal was born in Lahore on 25th February 1927. Her father Professor S.R.Kashyap was an internationally famed botanist who taught in Lahore’s Government College. Apart from being the founder of Lahore’s famous “Botanical Garden”, he was the President of “The Science Congress”. Kamini Kaushal was the youngest among 2 brothers and 3 sisters. Her elder brother Doctor K.N.Kashyap was associated with the P.G.I., Chandigarh as a surgeon for a very long period. Her younger brother Colonel A.N.Kashyap had been captured as a war prisoner in Japan during the WW-II, who suddenly returned home after 4 years when the family had lost all hope.
(During our conversation Kamini Kaushal didn’t mention the reason for her permanent shift to Mumbai. According to sources, Kamini Kaushal married her brother-in-law Mr.B.S.Sood after the sudden death of her sister in 1947 to look after his two little daughters. Mr.B.S.Sood was an officer in the Port Trust Of India and he retired from the post of Chief Engineer.)
