Today is the 20th anniversary of the day that this great actress was unexpectedly snatched away from us.
To me she was the greatest Indian actress . Yes, there were some bad masala movies she made in her later years but they were very very few compared to the classics that she’s acted in
She was the true queen of “parallel art” movies in the 1970s acting in “Manthan”, “Mirch Masala”, “Gaman” and “Chakra” to name a few.
She unexpectedly and tragically died of complications due to childbirth shocking the whole of India …Before then, I would never have even contemplated thinking of anyone dying of childbirth complications under the care of one of the best doctors in one of the best hospitals in India.
Hope some of her talent has been passed on to her son Prateek and he is a real “prateek” of her personality and talent.
