تقسیم سے قبل کی ایک ممتاز اداکارہ راگنی کی پاکستان میں پہلی فلم مندری (1949) تھی لیکن اسے ہیروئن کے طور پر کامیابی نہ مل سکی تھی۔ وہ زیادہ تر کیریکٹرایکٹر رولز میں پسند کی گئی تھی اور کئی فلموں میں اس کے بڑے اہم کردار ہیں۔ فلم نائیلہ (1965) اس کی ایک بہت بڑی فلم تھی۔ اپنے دور میں آہو چشم کہلانے والی اداکارہ بڑی کسمپرسی کی حالت میں 2007ء میں انتقال کر گئی تھی۔
