Noted filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi who was known for her several women oriented films like Rudaali and Daman, passed away in Mumbai on Sunday after a prolonged illness and a long battle with kidney cancer. Reportedly, she breathed her last around 4:30 am on Sunday at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. Her last rites will take place at Oshiwara Crematorium at 1 pm. She was diagnosed with kidney cancer last year and many pals from the industry had helped her out financially to fight the ugly C.
Needless to say, Bollywood is in a state of mourning including actors like Huma Quureshi and Raveen Tandon who took to Twitter to pay their last respects.
Her last directorial was the 2006 Chingari which featured Mithun Chakraborty, Sushmita Sen and Anuj Sawhney in pivotal roles. May her soul rest in peace.
