Veteran Bollywood actress Vidya Sinha, who was also seen in popular shows such as Kaavyanjali, besides Kulfi Kumarr Bajewala, passed away at 71 on Thursday afternoon.

The veteran actress was put on life support after she’d complained of breathing problems.

“Her prolonged medical issues had aggravated, leading to breathlessness and she even developed heart and lung disorders, leading to more breathlessness. All that has been taken care of,” a hospital official had told Hindustan Times last week. “She will have to stay here till complete recovery.”
