Popular TV and film actress Rita Bhaduri breathed her last on Tuesday. The sister of Jaya Bachchan and sister-in-law of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Bhaduri has appeared in numerous Hindi films through the '70s, '80s and '90s, primarily as side characters.
Bhaduri was undergoing regular dialysis due to severe kidney ailment and was reportedly at the hospital for past 10 days. She succumbed to her illness when she was under medical supervision at the hospital's ICU unit.
The actress appeared in over 70 films and in more than 30 television shows through her career. Some of her well-known films are Sawan Ko Aane Do that released in 1979 and Raja, a 1995 release. For the latter, she received a Filmfare Nomination in the category of Best Supporting Actress.
While her funeral will be held on Tuesday around noon, we are yet to hear from sister Jaya Bachchan. We learn through social media updates that Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek, Aishwarya are out of the country at the moment.
We pray that the departed soul rests in peace.
