Remember Rajnigandha? The 1974 Hindi film directed by Basu Chatterjee starred a lovely young actress called Vidya Sinha. The title song,Rajnigandha phool tumhare, sung by Lata Mangeshkar, was a huge hit. Vidya Sinha was seen in films like Chhoti Si Baat and Pati Patni Aur Woh, and made the switch to television as a more mature star, with shows like Kaavyanjali and, more recently, Kulfi Kumar Bajewala.
Sadly, the lady has been unwell, complaining of breathless due to heart and lung disorders. She is on ventilator support in a Mumbai hospital and is, fingers crossed, getting better fast.
While everyone says a little prayer for her good health, listen to the song that made so much musical sense!
