Actors and filmmakers alike were moved by the tragic loss that the film fraternity suffered today

Zohra Sehgal was a talented, feisty and elegant lady. The actor who worked in Indian cinema for more than seven decades passed away last night due to a cardiac arrest.

The actors’ fraternity expressed sorrow at Sehgal’s demise on Twitter. Amitabh Bachchan deemed her death as the end of an era. Shah Rukh Khan said that he is yet to meet a naughtier girl than her! Almost every actor or director lauded Zohra’s zest for life and her spirit of living life to the fullest.

Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Khan who are in Turkey currently for Dil Dhadakne Do‘s shooting also expressed their condolences and sadness over the demise of this legendary actor.

Zohra Sehgal was quoted on her 102nd birthday saying, “If they tell you that I am dead, I want to give you a big laugh.” though the phenomenal actor was prepared for her own death, the film industry most certainly wasn’t and we know that there will be no other like Zohra herself.
