Mumtaz thanks fans for their love and refutes rumours of her death in a video while assuring she is not lonely as reported.

Refuting rumours of her death, yesteryear Mumtaz has posted a video on her daughter’s Instagram account and assured fans that she is hail and hearty. The actor is currently in Rome, her daughter Tanya Madhvani has earlier informed fans on her page.

In the video posted on Tanya’s page, Mumtaz says, “Aap sab logo ko mera bahut bahut namaskar, Mumtaz bol rahi hun. Mujhe ye dekh kar aur sun kar ajeeb laga ki itne saalo baad bhi mujhe itne logon ka pyaar mila hai aur itne log mere liye worried the. Magar aap sab logon ka pyaar jitna mila hai mujhe, mai kitni khushnaseeb hun. Kitne log hote hain zindagi me jinhein itna pyaar milta hai? Bahut kam!(Namaskar! I am Mumtaz. I felt weird amd humbled that people remember me and worry for me even after so many years. I am lucky that I have your love even after such a long time.Very few people are lucky enough to get such love.) ”

The 70-year-old actor, who lives in London with her family, further says, “Magar worry mat kijiye, koi bhi pareshan mat hoiye. Mai acchi hu, mera health accha hai. Mere bacche mujhe bahut sambhalte hain, aur mai bahut hi khush hu. Lonely bilkul bhi nahi hu jaisa papers mein aaya tha. Mai bahut khush hoon. Aur ek sher bolna chahti hu jaane se pehle....Ya to deewana hanse ya tu jise taufiyak de, warna is duniya me aakar muskurata kaun hai! (But do not worry, I am good and my health is fine too. My kids take good care of my health and I am very happy. Unlike the newspaper reports, I am not at all lonely. I am very happy. )”

“... there are some rumors going around that my mother wasn’t well and I would like her fans to know that she is doing brilliantly. It is just a rumour. She is in Rome with me and we are going for shopping today to buy some plants for my garden,” Tanya had said on Sunday.

Mumtaz ruled the 1970s and began acting at an early age. Her first film as a child actor was Sone Ki Chidiya (1958). She featured in films like Vallah Kya Baat Hai, Stree and Sehra before she played the hero’s sister in her first film as an adult, OP Ralhan’s Gehra Daag.

She even featured in action films and it was not before Rajesh Khanna-starrer Do Raaste (1969) that she was recognised as a mainstream heroine. However, Khanna and Mumtaz were soon the hit jodi onscreen and the duo worked together in several films including Apna Desh (1972), Aaina (1977), Prem Kahani (1975), Aap Ki Kasam (1974), Roti (1974)and Saccha Jhootha (1970).
