she had given very powerful perfomance Mirch Masaala as a strong woman who fights against dirty officer played by Nashiruddin Shah, who also gave extra ordinary performance. She really was very cultured and rooted actress in the line of Shabana Aazami, Jaya Bachchan later Dipti Naval, Sulakshana Pandit and all. Its great of Mr.Bachchan to pay respect to co-star's family and work. He is not saying all other were not good, as I dont think he, ever ever critisized any actor or director..
We are greatly moved by the homage paid to Smita Patil.a great actress of her time paid by Amitabh Bachchan, a famous actor & legend of the Cine world. It is true that Smita Patil is still remembered by many for her magnificent role in a large number of Hindi films in which she had enacted. She was an embodiment of truth and very caring to people at large. So, the homage paid to her by Amitabh Bachchan did not come as surprise to us when he had pleasure working with her in many films. Let us join many to offer our tributes to Smite Patil though she had passed away many years ago but her acting & role she enacted in many films are still fresh in our memories and will remain so for ever! We are pleased to learn that her son Prateik Babbar has also joined Bollywood & his acting in the film JAANE TU: YA JAANE NA produced by Aamir Khan is super .Let us wish him all success in his long & blissful life!Let us not forget to thank Amitabh Bachchan for his kind words for Smita Patil though she is not amidst us but her memories will remain always alive in our hearts for ever as she was so compassionate & famous atress of our Bollywood who had won many presetigious national awards of repute!
