Purbi Joshi is an award winning actress from Mumbai, India. Purbi Jivan Chokhawker was born in Mumbai and is one of six siblings. Her father, P M Jankha, was a successful painter. Purbi’s mother, lining Purna Chokhwker was an actress too. Purbi got married to Sanjay Gandhi, son of Rajkumar Gandhi and had two children.
Purbi’s name, Purbi Jivan Chokhawker, in those days was used by many television shows and movies, even in the ‘Indian Family’ television shows. Purbi has appeared in a number of television shows, though she has always been a main actor and actress. In one episode of ‘Indian Family’ (nationally aired on DSTV), Purbi was playing the role of Nandimukha, the illegitimate son of the head of the family, who was about to get married to the princess. The father, pretending to be a god in disguise, offered Nandimukha a gift, which was none other than a van that would allow the wedding to go on.
The whole episode was a great success and gained ratings to a large extent. But, in another popular reality show called ‘Dusk Till Dawn’, a different kind of Purbi Jivan Chokhker was seen. She was shown as the mother of Nandimukha and as someone who was not happy with the way her son had been treated by his mother. After being discovered on the ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ television show, Purbi was quickly dismissed by Rajkumar and Nandimukha and several other prominent members of the royal family.

Purbi Jivan is perhaps best known for her contribution to the Bombay film industry in the late nineteen seventies. She rose from a relatively unknown television actress to one of the most famous in Bollywood. She has been credited with originating the concept of a bikini clad ladyboy who participated in Bollywood movies. Sarita Joshi was another name given to her by the director Satya in the late nineteen seventies. However, it was Purbi Chokhker who actually took the term sarita joshi into usage, when she appeared in the film ‘Dusk Till Dawn’.
Purbi Jivan’s name did not become familiar to the world until decades later. During the early nineteen seventies, her career had a sudden upsurge. Several of her films including ‘Aabara’ and ‘Shodh’ were a big hit. Then, gradually, as was the case with most leading actresses of that era, she seemed to lose interest in films and the profession. But this trend did not last long and in the early eighties, she was back in the news, when she was discovered performing at a charity function in New York.
