Zohra Sehgal, Grande Dame of Bollywood, known to U.S. audiences for The Jewel and the Crown and many movies, has died aged 102


Recommended Posts

The venerable Indian actress/dancer Zohra Sehgal has died aged 102. I remember seeing her first in The Jewel and the Crown and then in My Beautiful Lauderette, Bend It Like Beckham, and Bhaji on the Beach. (To mention only a few of her Western credits does a disservice to her amazing career in India, where she has been called the "Grande Dame of Bollywood.") She was a remarkable, endearing presence and has said "When I pass away I want no mourning." But she will be missed.






This photo is from The Jewel in the Crown in which she played Lady Lili Chatterjee.
