Veteran actress Geeta Kapoor passed away on Saturday morning at SRV Hospital in Mumbai. The actress starred in over a 100 films and is best known for her role in Pakeezah, where she played Rajkumar’s second wife.
Abandoned by her children, her quest to see them again remained unfulfilled as she bid adieu at the age of 57. Producer Ashoke Pandit, who took it upon himself to care for the actress, used to visit her often at the old age home she lived in.
Ashoke tweeted about the news of the actress’s demise in which he said, “Standing besides the dead body of Actress #GeetaKapoor 57 who was abandoned by her kids in #SRVHospital a year back breathed her last at a suburban Old age home today morning. We tried our best to keep her healthy but her wait for her Son&daughter made her weaker day by day. #RIP (sic)”
Commenting on the search for Geeta’s children, he says, “We have been trying to reach her children for the past one year. The police are trying to find out and we also are trying.”
Ashoke, who was her only visitor, says he met her four days before her death.
He says, “I had breakfast with her four days ago, she was fine then. Even then she told me her son Raja would definitely come to meet her. She couldn’t take the wait for her son.”...
