Shammi: long distance runner

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

With the passing of Shammi, the veteran actress whose career lasted several generations of the film industry, Bollywood has lost one of its most endearing character actors. Shammi died on Monday at the age of 89 and her last rites were performed at the Oshiwara creamatorium, near Andheri, yesterday. This artiste’s career began in 1949 and lasted for a good twenty-year period when she played either the lead or second lead heroine. She had a second wind from the period 1980-2002 when her career resurrected itself, playing much-loved and often goofy grandma roles. Not many can boast of such a long innings in the film industry. Rest in Peace, Shammi.
