Gohar Khayyam Mamajiwala (19 November 1910 – 28 September 1985), also known as Miss Gohar, was an Indian singer, actress, producer and studio owner.[1]

Early life[edit]

She was born into a Dawoodi Bohra family. Gohar's father's business almost collapsed and the family funds were seriously depleting when a family friend, Mr. Homi Master, working at the time as a director for Kohinoor Films, suggested that Gohar take up acting as a career. Her parents agreed.

Career[edit]

Gohar started her career at the age of sixteen with the film Baap Kamai/Fortune and the Fools (1926), directed by Kanjibhai Rathod. The role of the hero was portrayed by Khalil and the film was produced by "Kohinoor Films". The film was a hit. Gohar, along with Jagdish Pasta, Chandulal Shah, Raja Sandow and cameraman Pandurang Naik started "Shree Sound Studios". In 1929, along with Chandulal Shah, she founded Ranjit Studios, which was later known as Ranjit Movietone.[2]

Later life and death[edit]

She retired in the 1970s and died in Bombay, Maharashtra on 28 September 1985.
