The Hindi film industry agonized a devastating blow, when one of its most promising actors, Smita Patil, breathed her last. Legendary Smita Patil is gazed upon as one of the finest actors in Marathi and Hindi cinema. In a career straddling a decade, Smita acted in over 80 films.
Smita Patil was married to actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar, and passed away in 1986 at the age of 31 due to some difficulties, barely two weeks after giving birth to son Prateik Babbar.
On Thursday morning, remembering his wife on her 32nd death anniversary, Raj Babbar shared a heartwarming post with a photograph of the actress. He wrote, “Nature gave you such a short span, yet you lived such a fulfilling life. Your journey may have finished but the memories get enriched every single day. Remembering, Smita. It’s been 32 years that you left for another world this day. To absorb this, is still difficult.”
On the other hand, actor and son Prateik Babbar also shared a black-and-white photograph of her mother and wrote: “32 years since she left us.. my heart skips a beat every time I think of her.. my heart is restless.. yet perfectly content.. my veins feel heavy.. I can feel my blood.. it feels so warm.. she takes me in.. she takes my breath.. she is my breath.. she is my air.. she is my soul.. she is me. Rest in power, my beautiful.”
We really feel bad and mourn this day. Rest in peace and power- Smita Ji.
