Vet­eran ac­tress Shyama no more

The Hitavada - - NATION -

Her best known roles were in ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) and ‘Tarana’. She was also no­ticed in ‘Sawan Bhadon’, ‘Dil Diya Dard Liya’, ‘Mi­lan’ and ‘Sharda’, for which she was awarded the Film­fare Award for Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress.

Like Shammi Kapoor among male ac­tors, Shyama was most re­spon­sive to the rhythm and lyrics of the mu­sic di­rec­tors and po­ets.

Songs pic­turised on her such as “Ae dil mu­jhe bata de”, “O chand ja­han wo jaye”, “Ae lo main hari piya”, “Dekho, wo chand chhup ke karata hai kya ishare”, “Ch­hupa ke meri aankhon ko” and “Ja re ka re badara” are ex­am­ples of her sen­si­tive act­ing. She mar­ried cin­e­matog­ra­pher Fali Mistry in the year 1953. Shyama is sur­vived by two sons and a daugh­ter. Her fu­neral took place at a ceme­tery at Ma­rine Lines the same af­ter­noon.
