Today marks 34 years since legendary actress Smita Patil met with a tragic untimely demise merely at the age of 31, in the prime of life and her career, stemming from childbirth complications that arose two weeks after giving birth to Prateik Babbar. She had tied the knot with actor Raj Babbar, who had then left his wife, Nadira, to begin a family with her. Now, on Smita Patil's 34th death anniversary, her son, Prateik, who has become an actor of some credibility himself, has penned an emotional note trying to picture what his mother would have been had she stayed longer with him.
Taking to his official Instagram handle, Prateik Babbar wrote: “34 years ago today my mother left us.. over the years.. iv tried to imagine & create the perfect image of her.. in my mind & heart.. we’ve arrived at a very special place.. a very precious place.. now.. she’s the perfect mother.. the perfect woman.. the perfect role model.. the apple of every little boys eye.. that perfect mother every little boy idolises.. & wants to grow up to be like.. the one that will never leave your side.. & stay #4ever.. till the end of time.. & every year she grows younger.. with me.. she’s 65 years young now.. she will continue to live with me.. within me.. to infinity.. & beyond.. my beautiful.. mama queen.. my reason.. numero uno.. my #superstar #legend...rest in #love.. in #power.. in #paradise.”
