Nanda passes away at 72

Veteran Bollywood actress, Nanda, known for hits like Gumnaam and Jab Jab Phool Khile, died Tuesday morning following a massive heart attack at her residence here, her relative said. She was 72 and is survived by two brothers.

‘She breathed her last around 8.30 am. It happened so suddenly we could not even call a doctor,’ her sister-in-law Jaishree T said of Nanda’s end at her house in Seven Bungalows in the northwest suburb of Andheri.

Nanda was the daughter of renowned Marathi actor and director Vinayak D. Karnataki and niece of the legendary filmmaker V. Shantaram. Her funeral will be conducted this afternoon at the Jogeshwari electric crematorium, details of which are being finalised, Jaishree T said. Nanda, who was active in front of the camera for about four decades and has over 65 titles to her credit, joined filmdom as a child artist to support her family after her father’s demise.
