Veteran Bollywood actress Sadhana no more

She was 74 and is survived by her foster daughter.

Veteran Indian actress Sadhana Shivdasani, known for films like "Mera Saaya", "Wo Kaun Thi" and "Waqt", died here on Friday after a brief illness. She was 74.

Sadhana, who is credited for introducing the fringe hairstyle in Indian film industry, passed away at a private hospital here, sources said.

Her body was taken to her residence in suburban Mumbai where Bollywood personalities, including her former colleague and friend Waheeda Rehman, went to pay their last respects.

Sadhana was admitted to a suburban hospital here last year for a lesion in her mouth and underwent a surgery.

Born in 1941 in a Sindhi family, she was named after her father's favourite actress Sadhona Bose. Her father and actor Hari Shivdasani were brothers. Hari's daughter is actress Babita Kapoor.

Sadhana was the only child and and her mother home-schooled her until she was eight. In 1955 she played a chorus girl in the song "Mur mur ke na dekh mur mur ke" in Raj Kapoor's "Shree 420". She made her full-fldged film debut in the first ever Sindhi film "Abana".

Some of her memorable films include "Love in Simla", "Hum Dono", "Ek Musafir Ek Hasina", "Asli-Naqli", "Mere Mehboob" and "Woh Kaun Thi".
