Mushtaq Sheikh tweeted early morning, “Mrs Sudha Shivpuri (wife of Om Shivpuri) also popularly known as Baa in Kyun Ki passed away this morning. May her soul rest in peace. #RIP”
Sudha was battling health-related woes since a long time, which forced her to stay away from the small screen.
On Dec 2, 2013, she suffered a stroke, which affected the lower brain and thus, her basic motor skills, following the attack she couldnâ€™t talk much due to tracheotomy.
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.
She started acting at a very young age to support her ailing mother. Sudha married popular actor Hari Shivpuri in his struggling days and together they started a theatre company. Mrs Shivpuri started her Bollywood career with Basu Chatterjee’s Swami (1977). She then was seen in films like Insaaf Ka Tarazu, Hamari Bahu Alka, Sawan Ko Aane Do, Sun Meri Laila, Burning Train, Vidhaata and Maya Memsaab.
