The vital organs of veteran Telugu actor Anjali Devi, who died in Chennai on Monday, will be donated to Sri Ramachandra Media College (SRMC). She was 86.

“Her body has already been shifted to SRMC. She wanted her organs to be donated to the college. On Thursday, her body will be brought home from the hospital for the public to pay their last respects,” Anjali’s agent said. “The last rites will be performed on Thursday after the arrival of her relatives,” he added.

Born in 1928 as Anjani Kumar, she made her cinematic debut as a child artist in a 1936 film. It was director C Pullaiah who rechristened Anjani as Anjali Devi. In 1947, she made her debut as a lead heroine opposite Akkineni Nageswara Rao in Telugu family drama Balaraju.

Before entering films, Anjali was a popular theatre artist. Mostly known for starring in mythological and family dramas, Anjali became a household name with memorable performances in films such as Lava Kusha, Bhakta Prahlada, Bhakta Tukaram and Badi Pantulu.

She had also starred in a few Tamil films such as Niraparadhi and Sarvadhikari and Hindi movies like Devta and Sri Ram Vanvas.

Under her banner Anjali Pictures, she had also produced about 20 successful films such as Anarkali, Paradesi and Suvarna Sundari.
