Manoj Kumar: Nanda was an angel to me

Veteran actor Manoj Kumar talks about Nanda, who breathed her last today

B-town is mourning the death of yesteryear actor Nanda, who suffered a heart attack at her residence today. The 75-year-old had worked with legendary actors like Dev Anand, Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Manoj Kumar among others. Manoj Kumar had shared screen space with Nanda in three films and he recalls his experience of working with her. He said, “I was one of the privileged ones to have worked with her in three films – Bedaag (1965), Gumnaam (1965) and Shor (1972). While working with her in Bedaag, I was a junior to her but she never made me feel that way. She was so friendly that there was no inferiority complex (in me).” He added, “She was an angel to me.”

Apart from Manoj Kumar, a lot of B-townies took to Twitter to share their grief over Nanda’s death.
