Actor Shammi passes away at 89


Fondly addressed as ‘Shammi aunty’ by Bollywood celebrities, Shammi, whose real name is Nargis Rabadi, started her film career with Malhar as a leading lady and later on moved to the comic genre. Will miss her. May her soul rest in peace and her laughter and contagious smile rock the heavens. She was my mother’s dear friend and someone we all loved very much. pic.twitter.com/0BxQSNQRIL
