Early life

Maruti was born to an actor-director father Marutirao Parab on 4 April 1959. Her real name is Tahira Parab and she was nicknamed Guddi. Manmohan Desai gave her the screen name which is what she is known by today.[1]


Maruti started her career at the age of 10 years as a child artist in the film Jaan Haazir Hain.[1] After her father's death, she continued acting to support the family. Due to her physical appearance, she bagged comedy roles in films and kept on going with her career.[3][4]

Maruti has acted in over 97 movies since the 1980s. Over the years, she acted in TV shows and is well known for her role as Bua in the TV show Doli Armano Ki.[2] Her popular movies include Khiladi, Shola Aur Shabnam, Aashik Aawara, Dulhe Raja and Biwi No. 1.[5] She did not take chances to get to main stream acting to avoid risks of being unsuccessful.[1]

In 1995, Maruti and Vrajesh Hirjee did a stand up comedy show, Sorry Meri Lorry, which also added to her fame.[1]

She took a career break in 2006 and rejoined the film industry in 2015. She started her career again with the comedy movie Hum Sab Ullu Hain.[4][5]

Personal life

After her marriage, she had troubles conceiving and that led to her break from acting.[1]

In 1997, Maruti's brother Dara Munawar Ali died after an attack by Chotta Shakeel' s henchman.[6]
