This might one of those dark days where nothing will feel right. I just woke up to this shocking news. A veteran actor, a quintessential hindi superstar is no more.
She was a superstar of my parents’ time and then took a break. After 12 years she starred in English Vinglish and was a huge success. She played the role of a middle class woman who goes to New York to attend her niece’s wedding. While staying there she attempts to learn english. It was a very inspiring movie. The first time I saw her on big screen and fell in love.
This news is just so shocking because I remember her posting on instagram yesterday about the fabulous time she is having.
She was in Dubai, attending a marriage. Early in the morning, after she left the wedding, she went into cardiac arrest, at the age of 54.
She was India’s first female superstar, a fashion icon, padma shri winner, and recipient of 6 filmfare awards.
She is the only 90’s superstar I absolutely loved, my heartfelt condolences to the families. She left the whole India in shock with her charms, beauty and grace, and today she again leaves us all in shock.
