In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Al Ahzaab verse 59: O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters, and the women of the believers, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah An-Noor verse 31: And O Prophet, enjoin the believing women to restrain their gaze and guard their private parts and not to display their adornment except that which is displayed of itself, and to draw their veils over their bosoms and not to display their adornment except before their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their husbands, their sons and the sons of their husbands, their brothers, their brothers sons, their sisters sons, their female associates, and those in their possession and male attendants incapable of sexual desire, and those boys who have not yet attained knowledge of sexual matters. Also forbid them to stamp their feet on the ground lest their hidden ornaments should be displayed.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, it would not behove a believing woman, who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day, to become a movie actress and display herself and her beauty on screens to millions of non-mehrams; when Allah and His Messenger (saws) have guided that the believing woman should restrain her gaze, guard her modesty, and not display her adornment to any other than her mehram relatives. It would definitely not behove a God-fearing, righteous believing woman to choose to become a screen actress; and that too in Indian cinema which are nothing more than a portrayal of indecency and fahisha at its worst!

May Allah have Mercy on the Ummah of Islam, and save the believing men and the believing women from the trials and temptations of this transitory world.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
