[on cultivating her image as the 'Mystery Girl'] I have always believed that an artiste should maintain a certain mystique. He or she shouldn't become too familiar, the public shouldn't see them too often. The charisma grows in that way, and that's what's called star-power.
With her first starring role Love in Simla
(1960), Sadhana was bound by a three-year contract to the studio Filmalaya. The first year she was paid 750 rupees a month, the second year 1500 rupees a month, and the final year 3000 rupees a month. Once the contract ended, Sadhana commanded top money for her films.
