She is most remembered for her glamorous roles alongside top heroes of the 1970s and early 1980s.
She was known for her portrayal of iconoclastic women who did not care about conventional norms of Indian society.
This glamorous actress met a sad death. She died at the age of 55 on January 20, 2005 in her Juhu residence.
As she lived alone, nobody got a hint of what was in store for her. Her door was locked from inside, so the police had to break open the door and that's when they found her body three days after her death.
It's still unclear if it was a natural death or a suicide case.
