Postal stamp on Leela Naidu released

Six legendary actresses like leela Naidu, Meena Kumari, Nutan, Kanan Devi, Devika Rani and Savitri Devi are being honoured with the issuance of postage stamps to coincide with the week-long Indipex 2011 Philately exhibition in the capital.

This makes the total number of stamps on film personalities issues so far to just over twenty, even as the film industry is completing one hundred years of its existence next year.

The first postage stamp to honour a film personality was issued on 30 April 1971, when a 20 paisa stamp was released to mark the birth centenary of Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian Cinema.
