"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".
