Veteran actress Sudha Shivpuri aka Baa of Kyunki..passes away

Veteran television actor Sudha Shivpuri, who became a household name with role as Baa in the popular Hindi show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi on Star Plus, passed away at the age of 77 in Mumbai on Wednesday.

The news was broken on Twitter by television writer Mushtaq Shiekh, who wrote, “Sudha Shivpuri (wife of Om Shivpuri) also popularly known as Baa in Kyun Ki passed away this morning.”

Her funeral will be held at the Oshiwara Crematorium in Mumbai at 2.30 pm on Wednesday.

While her co-stars like Ronit Roy and Ketki Dave reminisced about the time spent with her, stars like Tusshar Kapoor and Divya Dutta expressed their condolences.

Ronit, who worked with Sudha during his stint as Mihir on the long-running Star Plus show “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi“, told: “I’ll always remember her as being a sweet Baa. I feel sad at her demise and my condolences for the family at the same time. I feel happy that the soul is now free from sorrow. My prayers for her soul and her family.

Ketki Dave, who essayed Sudha’s daughter-in-law in the Ekta Kapoor production, remembered Sudha for her kind attitude.

Shivpuri was keeping unwell since 2013 and passed away on Wednesday morning, the reports said. The actor had suffered a stroke on Dec 2, 2013, which affected her basic motor skills. She stayed at the hospital for almost six months after the stroke.

Shivpuri made her film debut with Basu Chatterjee’s Swami in 1977. She also worked in several movies including Insaaf Ka Tarazu, Hamari Bahu Alka, Sawan Ko Aane Do, Sun Meri Laila, Burning Train, Vidhaata and Maya Memsaab.

Sudha started her TV career with serials like Aa Bail Mujhe Maar, Rajni, Missing, Rishtey, Sarhadein and Bandhan. Ekta Kapoor’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu thi in 2000, marked the big break in her TV career.

A theatre enthusiast, Sudha married actor Om Shivpuri, who passed away in 1990. Sudha is survived by two children – son Vineet and daughter Ritu, who too is an actress.
