Vidya Sinha, who acted in films like Pati, Patni aur Woh, Rajnigandha, Chhoti Si Baat among others, passed away on Thursday, aged 71. Spotboye reported that the actress died in Criticare Hospital, Juhu at 12 noon on Thursday.
Earlier in the week, Vidya was put on ventilator support in the hospital in Mumbai. She was diagnosed with lung disorder a while ago and her condition had become worse since three months. The disorder had originated a few years ago and Vidya was brought in while she was in a serious condition.
The website had earlier reported that when the ventilator support was being removed, her oxygen levels tended to drop and she became breathless.
Born in Mumbai on November 15, 1947, to film producer Rana Pratap Singh, she started her professional career as a model and even won the Miss Bombay contest, catching the eye of renowned filmmaker Basu Chatterjee, making her mark in the industry though she entered it post-marriage.
In 1968, she was married to Venkateshwaran Iyer, and the couple has a daughter, Jhanvi.
After Iyer's death in 1996, she had quit acting for some time and entered into a wedlock with Netaji B. Salunkhe, a doctor, in a temple ceremony.
They lived in a flat in Andheri west, but soon afterwards the marriage soured with her husband allegedly torturing her and demanding money, resulting in a police case which she subsequently won.
After giving hits including Pati, Patni Aur Woh and Chhoti Si Baat, Vidya made a comeback in television serials like Kavyanjali, Bahu Rani, Zaara, Bhabhi and her most recent show Kulfi Kumar Bajewala. She was also seen in the 2011 Salman Khan's Bodyguard.
