Facts about Jamileh’s life

Much like other persian entertainers of the 20th century, including Susan, Delkash, and Googoosh, Jamileh’s career dancing in cabarets provided her the opportunity to enter persian cinema, which would eventually lead her to national fame. She began her acting career after her marriage to Arbâb, aiming to be recognized as a “dancer-actor” in cinema, like Samia Gamal in Egyptian cinema.
