'Happy birthday to my gorgeous lady': Prateik Babbar remembers his mother Smita Patil
Remember his late mother Smita Patil on her 64th birth anniversary, Prateik Babbar shared two photographs of his mother.
While the first one is a black and white photograph where the veteran actress can be seen in a white furry dress. Second is a still featuring her from the song Tohfa Kabool from the 1983 movie Ghungroo. Captioning the first photograph, Babbar writes, "Happy birthday to my gorgeous lady." For the second photo, he is perhaps quoting his mother as he writes, "Do not breathe.. what people will think' ~ Smita Patil (1955-1986) Rest in Power."
Check out both the pictures here:
Smita appeared in over 80 Hindi, Marathi and Malayalam films in a career that spanned just over a decade. During her acting journey, she received two National Film Awards. She was the recipient of the Padma Shri in 1985. The actress was married to actor Raj Babbar. She died on 13 December, 1986 at the age of 31 due to childbirth complications. Over 10 of her films were released after her death.
