Urmila Matondkar (born on February 4, 1974 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India) is a Bollywood actress.

Career

She started her career as a child artist; perhaps the best known of her early movies is the 1983 Masoom. Her first big hit was the 1995 Rangeela, in which she played a star-struck dancer. She was nominated for a Filmfare Best Actress Award for her work in Rangeela. Her first film with Director Ram Gopal Verma was Drohi. She has starred in many subsequent RGV pictures, such as Daud, Satya, Kaun, Mast, Jungle, and Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya.

Her biggest hits since Rangeela have been Judaai, Satya and Bhoot. She also turned in strong dramatic performances in Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, Pinjar, Tehzeeb, Ek Hasina Thi, Naina , Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara and Banaras in 2006.

Urmila is an outstanding dancer and has been a featured performer in many Bollywood "item numbers", in which a star gives a cameo performance in a song-and-dance number. Perhaps her best-known item number is the Chamma Chamma sequence from the 1998 China Gate. A brief Westernized version of Chamma Chamma appeared in Baz Luhrman's 2001 film musical, Moulin Rouge -- minus Urmila. Other hit numbers include the opening song of Company,Aaiye Aajaye from the hit film Lajja. She has recently been signed to perform the item song in the Remake of Sholay that was earlier performed by the legendary Helen (Bollywood actress). Her height is 5'4.

Urmila was nominated for what is popularly called the Filmfare Best Villain Award in 2001, for her work in Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya.

In 2003, Urmila won her first Filmfare Award: Critics Award Best Performance for Bhoot. Her same performance won her recognition in many other award ceremonies as well.

Urmila has been nominated for Filmfare Best Actress Award category four times for films Rangeela in 1995, Satya in 1998, Bhoot in 2003, and Ek Hasina Thi in 2004 but has never won, yet.
