Former sister in law of actress Sharda. She is the sister of Vinod Mehra and acted in Ek Ke Baad Ek (1960).
Sister named Pearl and brother named Rajiv.
When Bindiya was just 14 years old, she was discovered by Superstar Hema Malini's mother at a party, who felt there was a resemblance to Hema and so recommended Bindiya's name to film producers who soon cast her in hit films.
Her first husband was her frequent leading man Vinod Mehra, but the marriage dissolved quickly, partly because of family tensions.
She currently creates the costumes for female stars, such as Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor, for her husband J.P. Dutta's films, such as "Border," "Refugee," and "LOC."
