Veteran actress Rajeeta Kochhar has passed away. She is survived by her husband and daughter
The 70-year-old was admitted to the hospital on December 20 after experiencing breathlessness and pain in her stomach. She eventually succumbed to renal failure.
Kochar had suffered a brain stroke in September last year and was not keeping well since then.
“When I met her in the evening (December 23), she held my hand and thanked me for everything. I told her that she had to live for me, and she gave me a thumbs up.
"That was the last conversation we had. I feel she knew that she was going,” Kochhar's niece Nupur told Etimes.
“She brought me up and I took care of her. She was someone who never troubled anybody. She loved her movies, plays and her co-actors. They were her life,” she added.
