Yesteryear actress Saira Banu could not believe that her good friend and ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ star Nanda was no more.

Veteran actress Nanda passed away this morning following a heart attack at her residence in suburban Andheri.
“It’s terrible to hear this sad news. I am devastated. She was a very sweet and loving person. She was homely and family oriented. She was not a party person… This was a common quality between the two of us,” Banu told PTI.

Though, Banu had not shared screen space with Nanda in any film, she admired her body of work.

“I loved her the most in ‘Chhoti Behan’, ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. I admired her work a lot, she was a very talented actress,” she said.
Banu became friends with Nanda in 1983-84 and since then they have been sharing good bond.

“We used to meet once in two-three months… We used to go to each other’s place. She loved biryani, shami kabab a lot at our place. Then she cut down on her eating habits and then she, Dilip Sahab and I used to have snacks,” Banu said.

“We shared a lovely friendship. We both respected, loved each other. We had a lot of regard for each other. We three used to go on drive as well,” she said.

Banu spoke to her last Saturday and had gifted her a white outfit, which Nanda loved a lot.
