Style icon and veteran actress Sadhna passes away at 74 in Mumbai
Veteran actress and style icon Sadhna Shivdasani passed away in Mumbai today morning. The actress who had turned 74 in September this year had been admitted to the Hinduja hospital.

The actress had been diagnosed with having a tumor and had been battling cancer for a long time. Last year in December she had been operated upon for a bleeding oral lesion. Her close friend and BJP city spokesperson Shaina NC confirmed the news to IANS saying, "Sadhna breathed her last at her home this morning."

The actress was a style icon during her prime and her legendary hair style with fringes of hair covering her forehead even today is referred to as Sadhna cut. Sadhna sported such a hair cut to make her broad forehead look smaller. Many believe that her trademark hair cut was inspired by Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn.

Numerous fans of hers have been expressing their remorse and condolences on social media through tweets and FB posts.

In her illustrious career spanning many years Sadhna acted in numerous films like `Parakh', `Hum Dono', `Love in Shimla', `Aarzoo', `Waqt', `Mere Mehboob' and `Who Kaun Thi.' With her passing away a golden era of Bollywood has ended.

The actress had married her `Love in Shimla' director RK Nayyar on 7 March 1966. The couple remained married for nearly 30 years until Nayyar's death in 1995 of asthma. The couple had no children. Later on after retirement Sadhna mostly refused to be photographed as she wanted to remembered the way she was.

Veteran actress Babita who is the mother of actresses Karishma and Kareena Kapoor is Sadhna's cousin. In an interview in 2013 Sadhna had said that she was hardly in touch with Babita.

The actress was last seen walking the ramp with Ranbir Kapoor in 2014. May her soul rest in peace.
