Yesteryears film heroine Shyama, whose vim and spon­tane­ity lit up song se­quences in Guru Dutt’s breezy crime yarn, Aar Paar (1953), and AVM pro­duc­tions' weepy so­cial, Bhai Bhai (1956), passed away in Mum­bai on Tues­day. She was 82, says film data web­site IMDB. Ac­cord­ing to a 1952 book, though, she would have been 84.

Shyama acted in at least 140 movies es­say­ing lead parts, char­ac­ter roles and blink-and-miss parts. She is most re­mem­bered for her role in Bhabhi (1957) and Ch­hoti Ba­hen (1960). Her lone Film­fare Award as Best Supporting Ac­tress was for her per­for­mance in Sharada (1957) .
