Sonu Sood remembered Vidya Sinha with a tinge of nostalgia. "We have grown up watching you lightning the screen with your performances. Your graciousness and simplicity was unmatchable,"
Bengali superstar Prosenjit tweeted his favourite picks among Vidya Sinha's films. "You will be always remembered specially for ‘Rajnigandha', ‘Chhoti Si Baat', ‘Mukti'," he wrote on Twitter.
"She was an extremely talented actor, but most importantly a very genuine and down-to-earth person.
I remember her sweet request when she was cast to play a pivotal role in the television show
‘Itti Si Khushi'. She asked if I would direct one of her scenes. I had stopped directing since long but could not say no to such a veteran. I thought of directing one scene but seeing her enthusiasm and dedication I ended up directing for a full day! She created a family bond with the entire unit.
She will be missed," said producer Rajan Shahi of "Itti Si Khushi".
