Kajal Kiran, also credited as Kaajal Kiran, is a former Bollywood starlet who shot to instant fame after being discovered and cast by Nasir Hussain in his blockbuster hit Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977).
Kajal, born as Sunita Kulkarni in a middle class Marathi family was chosen by Nasir Hussain to play the lead in his romantic comedy Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977). The movie turned out to be one of the biggest successes of that year, but it did not help boost Kajal’s career.
Though she was paired opposite Rishi Kapoor, her pairing with him did not work out as they were not cast opposite each other again.
She was seen as Mithun Chakraborty’s heroine in Wardaat and Humse Badhkar Kaun, which were declared hits at the box office. In spite of the success of her films, she never managed to reach the height of the successful heroines of her time. She was seen in Ramsay Brothers horror films like Saboot, Dahshat, Haveli and Saaya.
She was also paired opposite Mohanlal in the Malayalam film Uyarangalil and with Mammootty in the film Ee Lokam Evide Kure Manushyar and Chakkarayumma. She did item songs and supporting roles in the late 80s.
Kaajal quit the film industry in 1990 after marriage and relocated to the Netherlands.

Professional Life :
Her debut happened with the movie Hum Kisise Kum Nahi opposite Rishi Kapoor in 1977. The film went on to become a superhit, mainly because of the songs Ye Ladka Hai Allah and Kya Hua Tera Vada.
For this movie, the director Nasir Hussain signed her when she met her while going to meet a relative. Apparently, Asha Parekh was to star in this movie, but when she opted out, the young Kajal got her first break.
She followed it up with a movie with Mithunda in 1980 called Vardaat. Thereafter, she signed more than 25 films, some of which were not released unfortunately and some were big flops. Later, she moved down South and did a few mallu and kannada films.
Despite a few good hits and a dream start, her film career failed to pick up after the 1980s. She quietly married a guy in Amsterdam and is now settled there with her children.
