Veteran actress Shammi Rabadi passes away at 89

Veteran actress Shammi Rabadi passes away at 89

Veteran actress Asha Parekh was barely able to contain her sobs after the news of the demise of her best friend and "guardian angel" Nargis Rabadi, universally known in the film industry as Shammi Aunty, broke on Tuesday morning. Throughout her career in Bollywood, Shammi featured in supporting roles in films such as Hum Saath Saath Hain, Arth, Hum and The Burning Train. Her loss is another shock for the Bollywood industry, and a reminder that there have been so many great actress' who were under appreciated while they were alive.

She also played crucial roles in popular TV shows "Dekh Bhai Dekh", "Zabaan Sambhal Ke", "Shriman Shrimati, ' 'Kabhi Yeh Kabhi Woh" and 'Filmi Chakkar'.

Khosla took to Instagram to post an elegant photograph of the late actress, and described her as "special", "guide", "best friend".

During the shooting of Malhar, Shammi met Nargis Dutt and the two became good friends. A long suffered illness, age. Sad.

Fondly addressed as "Shammi aunty" by Bollywood celebrities acted in movies like Jab Jab Phool Khile, Preet Na Jane Reet, Aamne - Saamne, Upkar, Ittefaq and many others.

Her last major role was in the Boman Irani and Farah Khan starrer comedy "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi" which had released in 2013. She began acting in films as a second lead and over the years transitioned from a friend to a heroine, from the hero's sister to a maternal figure, and from a mother to eventually a grandmother. May her soul rest in peace and her laughter and contagious smile rock the heavens. Most wonderful, loving and amusing.

Her comedianne act K. Asif's "Musafirkhana" got her stuck with amusing roles but Shammi aunty never complained.
