Parveen Babi passed away on January 20, 2005, in her flat in Mumbai. She made her film debut with the film 'Charitra' (1973), opposite cricketer Salim Durani. The film did not do well at the box office, but Parveen was noticed and was snapped up for several more films. Her first major hit was 'Majboor' (1974), opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Along with Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi helped change the image of the Indian film heroine. She was the first Bollywood star to appear on the front page of Time in July 1976.

Throughout her career, she was considered a glamorous fashion icon. Meanwhile, Urvashi has recently come up with the web series 'Inspector Avinash' opposite actor Randeep Hooda. The show is streaming on the OTT platform JioCinema.
