News Helpline | July, 11 2014

After the news of actress Zohra Sehgal’s death in New Delhi, megastar Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, "Zohra Sehgal passes away at 102 yrs... what a journey and what an immensely loveable co star! Prayers for her blessed soul!!" 

The actor had played a chilled-out mother to Big B’s character in the critically acclaimed 2007 film Cheeni Kum, but his memories of her go way back in time, when he was a child. Once earlier, Amitabh had shared how he had met Zohra as a child when she visited his hometown Allahabad. 

“My family has a special relationship with Zohra Sehgal. Zohraji used to work with Prithvi Raj Kapoor in Prithvi Theatre. Prithvi Raj Kapoor had a cordial relationship with my father and whenever the Prithvi group visited Allahabad, we used to meet Zoharji,” he had said before the actor turned 100 in 2012.

The actress' zest for life and charm continued to inspire generations.

A tireless performer, she used to stay in New Delhi with her daughter, renowned Odissi danseuse Kiran Sehgal.
