Smita Patil was a special lady, considerate friend: says Amitabh Bachchan

Legendary Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan gyrated to ‘Ke pag ghoongroo’ with Smita Patil in the frame. He says she was a special lady.

The 74-year-old actor remembered the late actress, with whom he worked in films like ‘Shakti’ and ‘Namak Halal’, on what would’ve been her 61st birth anniversary.

“Birth anniversary of Smita Patil…worked with her in ‘Shakti’ and ‘Namak Halal’…a special lady! A considerate friend,” Amitabh tweeted.

Smita was regarded among the finest stage and film actresses of her time and she appeared in over 80 Hindi and Marathi films in a career that spanned just over a decade. She received two National Film Awards and was also the recipient of the Padma Shri in 1985.

Her son Prateik Babbar is also an actor.

She also worked in Marathi Play . Somali bendre , Nana patekar , atul Kulkarni . And Dadasaheb Phalke he is king of Indian cinema .

  • Smita Patil was extremely special . My mother and father are huge admirers of her acting, screen presence and brilliant films . May her soul rest in peace . She played a very important role in the upliftment of parallel cinema along with Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Shabana Azmi and Anupam Kher .

  • you know how old time actresses were so different from one another. Every actresses had their own charisma and style like Smita Patil, Hema Malini, Meena Kumari, Sharmila Tagore, Kajol, Madhuri, Sridevi, Divya Bharti, Manisha, Juhi etc….. They were very talented and could stand toe to toe with actors.. This age only few actresses are different like Deepika, Anushka….. rest all look and act the same have little charisma and get overshadowed by the heros .
