Shashikala Jawalkar was one of six children born in Solapur, Maharashtra to a Hindu Bhavsar Shimpi caste Marathi speaking family. By age 5, she had already been dancing, singing and acting on stage in many towns in Solapur district. When Shashikala was in her pre-teens, through ill luck, her father became bankrupt, and he brought his family to Bombay (now Mumbai), where they thought that Shashikala, the best-looking and most-talented among his children, could find work in movies. For some time, the family lived with friends and barely survived, while Shashikala wandered from one studio to another looking for work. She earned in bits and pieces till she met Noor Jehan, the reigning screen queen.
Noor Jehan's husband Shaukat Hussain Rizvi, was making the movie Zeenat then, and included Shashikala in a qawwali scene. She worked with Shammi kapoor in film Daku (1955). She struggled on and got small roles in movies made by P. N. Arora, Amiya Chakravarti, and a few other producers. She got roles in V. Shantaram's Teen Batti Char Raasta (1953) and a few other movies. While in her early twenties, Shashikala met and married Om Prakash Saigal, who belonged to the Kundan Lal Saigal family, and has two daughters.
Acclaimed supporting roles
In 1959, she appeared in Bimal Roy's Sujata. In Tarachand Barjatya's Aarti (1962), starring Meena Kumari, Ashok Kumar, and Pradeep Kumar, Shashikala portrayed a negative role, eventually winning a Filmfare Award. Soon after, offers began to pour in to her for supporting roles. She appeared in Anupama, Phool Aur Patthar, Ayi Milan Ki Bela, Gumrah, Waqt, and Khubsoorat. She played a negative character in Chhote Sarkar (1974) starring Shammi kapoor and Sadhana. While her female lead costars usually played roles of good-natured, modest, or pious women, Shashikala usually played either flighty and feisty bubbly women or vamps who plotted the downfall of others. Later in her acting career, she would typically play the role of a sister or mother-in-law. She performed in supporting roles in more than 100 films.
Recent acting roles
In the past ten years, she has performed in a few television serials, including Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai for Sony, Apnaapan for Zee TV, Dil Deke Dekho for Sab TVand Son Pari for Star Plus. She had roles in Mother ‘98, Pardesi Babu, Baadshah, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Chori Chori.
Shashikala has received eight nominations for the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award and won the award twice:
1962: Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award, for a role in Aarti
1963: Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award, for a role in Gumrah
She received several awards for Best Supporting Actress (Hindi) at the Bengal Film Journalists' Association Awards - for Aarti in 1963, for Gumrah in 1964, for Rahgir in 1970.
Shashikala Jawalkar received the Padma Shri award (the fourth highest civilian award) in the year 2007 for her contribution to Indian Cinema. When she received the award, she said: "I have been recognized for this award very late, and indeed, I should have got this award long back." She received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the V. Shantaram Awards in 2009.
