Mumbai: Celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Riteish Deshmukh paid emotional tributes to veteran actress Rita Bhaduri, who passed away on 17 July. They remembered her as one of the "finest" talents to emerge out of FTII, and described her as a warm and full of life person.
Rita was 62. She died at a hospital where she was admitted for over a week. She had a weak kidney and was undergoing dialysis.
The actress' ongoing show, Star Bharat's Nimki Mukhiya, saw her as grandmother Imarti Devi. She was also known for playing important supporting roles in movies like Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Kya Kehna, Dil Vil Pyar Vyar and Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon, apart from having extensive appearances on the small screen.
Here is what the celebrities had to say:
#RitaBhaduri was one of the finest actresses that #FTII gave us. I had the honour of working with her in Ghar Ho to Aisa, Beta & Viraasat & I'm really saddened to hear about her passing...She will be dearly missed by her friends, family & fans...

#RitaBhaduri 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 @FTIIOfficial. Om Shanti.🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/8V8lwMjHSX — Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) July 17, 2018
