‘I spoke to Nanda the night before she passed away’

For veteran actress Asha Parekh, it’s hard to believe that her friend and confidante Nanda is no more. She says she had spoken to the late actress just the night before she passed away, and finds it ‘frightening’ that she didn't even get a chance to bid her goodbye.

Nanda, known for hits like Gumnaam and Jab Jab Phool Khile, died here Tuesday morning following a massive heart attack at her residence. She was 72. ‘I spoke to her on Monday night. We had a long chat. On Tuesday morning she was gone. When I spoke to her in the night, she was absolutely normal. She was in no pain at all, not even any uneasiness. It is frightening when you don’t even get a chance to say goodbye. You are reminded of the fragility of life,’ Asha said.
