She was an iconic actress who went effortless from dancing to ‘Hawa Hawai’, becoming the most beautiful ‘Roop Ki Rani’ and then also essaying a practical, real life house wife in ‘English Vinglish’. It is truly a dark day in the history of Indian cinema today. While further details are yet awaited from her family, the industry is already mourning the loss.
