Parveen Babi's TIME Cover Mystery

Ok, i have searced all over the internet twice and i cannot find the Parveen Babi Time cover. First and foremost the accurate date of the cover is all confusin, on some websites it says 1975 and others 1976 or 1977 . So to get the accurate date i went to the Time website and searched her up there, on the website two things come 1 an article of when she died (Milestone) and 2 an article about the Indian film industry in which she is mentioned. In both the milestone and article it does not say anywhere that she was on the cover. The 2 article that she was in (the one about the indian cineama) came out in 1977 and some white lady on the cover. So then after getting fustrated with that i tried to find the newer Aishwariya Rai cover on the time site and I didnt find that eithere, not even on goolgle. So the only explnation that i could find was that both the covers (Parveen's & Aish's) were only reaeased in India and not anywhere else. So if anybody would have any of the covers i would (and I know many others) would really like to see them, so hope somebody posts them soon.

The 1977 Aritcle had this as the cover:

Asia's Bouncing World of Movies article:
The Milestone Article:

Did the same search rt now and couldn't find the cover as well. Is it even real or just a myth ? Because if we can't prove it, what good is it !

I KNOW that I saw the cover, someone had it on a plane. I thought it might have been in 1983, but I could easily be wrong. One thing I'm pretty sure of is that they spelt her Babee. I was curious about it as I'm a Baha'i and the early Baha'is were called Babis, but I never saw it again! She had a red bikini-type top. I didn't know about her before that, but the glance at the cover styaed in my brain!!

I believe Parveen Babi was on the India or Asia edition of Time magazine. Even my search on the TIME website today confirms Your experience & all details You mentioned are true. Parveen Babi was NOT on the cover of ANY of all the four March 1977 issue of Time magazine US edition. The website covers only the US edition. I also earnestly believe that Parvin Babi is much more beautiful than Zeenat Aman (Amin) ever was in any of her movies. Both have Muslim heritage.

DIED. PARVEEN BABI, 49, Bollywood siren touted in a TIME cover story as the face of the modern Indian woman in 1977, of unspecified natural causes; in Bombay. After debuting in 1973's Charitrna while still a college student, Babi quickly became a favorite of Indian audiences dazzled by her striking beauty. She appeared in more than 50 movies, pushing the boundaries of conservative Hindi films by wearing bikinis and smoking and drinking on screen....

this is what i got after a search on the TIME mag website...

The links on her wikipedia page has everything including two PDF documents in which she writes herself about her life. Totally worth reading and saving them.

July 19, 1976. it was Europe as well which is why it was such a big deal because she was the first Indian to do so
