              The sad part is that this actress has more talent than most of Bollywood combined, but she wont get the recognition she deserves as she is part of an industry with much smaller budgets.

                                            It's indeed sad. She was a bundle of talent. To p away so young is terribly tragic. May god rest her soul in peace.
