This Tuesday morning had been gloomy as the news of Rita Bhaduri’s demise made rounds on the internet. Rita Bhaduri was 62 years old and was not keeping well from days. The actress died in the hospital where she was admitted from over a week. She had a weak kidney and was undergoing dialysis.
Just as the news reached people, they couldn’t control their emotions and started tweeting and sending their prayers for her through social media. Celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Riteish Deshmukh paid emotional tributes to veteran actress Rita Bhaduri as one of the "finest" talents to emerge out of FTII, and described her as a warm and full of life person.
The actress played the role of the grandmother, Imarti Devi in the Star Bharat’s ongoing show, ‘Nimki Mukhiya’. She had also played many important roles in various movies like "Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa", "Kya Kehna", "Dil Vil Pyar Vyar" and "Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon”.
Here’s what the celebrities said:
1. Anupam Kher:
Rita Bhaduri was affectionate, helpful, jovial, bright and full of life. It is sad and unfortunate that we sum up a person only when he or she is gone. I wish we met more often. We have lost a very fine actress and a brand ambassador/alumni of FTII. Om Shanti.
2. Anil Kapoor:
Rita Bhaduri was one of the finest actresses that FTII (Film and Television Institute of India) gave us. I had the honour of working with her in "Ghar Ho to Aisa", "Beta" and "Viraasat" and I'm really saddened to hear about her passing. She will be dearly missed by her friends, family and fans.
3. Riteish Deshmukh:
She was part of so many films that I grew up on. Will always remember her for the warmth in her smile and her performances. Condolences to the family and loved ones. RIP Rita Bhaduriji.
4. Shruti Seth:
RIP Rita Bhaduri ma'am. Thank you for all the years of entertainment. May you shine with the stars now.
5. Vivek Dahiya:
Woke up to this news, a brilliant actress and a quintessential mother on screen. Saddened and at loss of words.
6. Ajaz Khan:
The world of art has lost a kind soul. Rest in peace Rita Bhaduri, your work will always be with us.
7. Pratik Gandhi:
An artist never dies, I was the fortunate one to have worked with her in probably her last film. May her soul rest in peace.
