Om Prakash, Prakash Mehra, Raj Khosla and Sultan Ahmad grabbed her for crucial roles, making her the highest-paid actress of the mid-1970s and early 1980s.
Though she competed professionally with Rekha, off-screen they were good friends.
Jeetendra and Reena Roy have worked in 22 films together and in 17 movies they were paired romantically.
12 of the 17 films where she was heroine to Jeetendra were super-hits.
She was renamed as Roopa Rai, which was changed to Reena Roy by the producer of her first film, Zaroorat. Ishara cast both actors again in Zaroorat (1972), along with another newcomer Vijay Arora, and the racy film got her some attention. Yet, she struggled for the next four years in B-grade films that had feeble scripts and faltering leading men.
Success and public recognition (1970–1979) Reena Roy's career in films started off with a non-starter, B. Ishara's Nai Duniya Naye Log with another newcomer Danny Denzongpa, but it was shelved temporarily.

The successes of Zakhmee (1975) and Kalicharan led to her star vehicle Nagin (1976).Subhash Ghai, a failed actor, was making his directorial debut, and Shatrughan Sinha, an actor known for his villainous roles, was making his first mark as a hero.But the film defied everyone's expectations and became a surprise hit. While one see actors walking out of their present relation and forming a new, many a times it also happens that they get back to old one as Sonakshi Sinha is doing.Reena Roy (born 7 January 1957) is a Hindi Bollywood actress who has performed leading roles in many films from 1972 to 1985 and was a leading actress of that era.
