Late actress Geeta Kapoor breathed her last on May 26, at SRV Hospital in Mumbai. She has been living in an old age home after her son abandoned her last year. The news of her death was confirmed by Ashoke Pandit on Twitter. He tweeted, “Standing besides the dead body of Actress #GeetaKapoor 57 who was abandoned by her kids in #SRVHospital a year back breathed her last at a suburban Old age home today morning. We tried our best to keep her healthy but her wait for her Son&daughter made her weaker day by day. #RIP”. The late veteran actress had worked in over one hundred films. She was remembered for her role in Kamal Amrohi’s ‘Pakeezah’ where she played Rajkumar’s second wife. Kapoor’s son, Raja, is said to be a choreographer. Her daughter, Pooja, is an air hostess. Raja, the actor’s son had apparently abandoned her last year, and never returned to check on her. CBFC member Ashoke Pandit and filmmaker Ramesh Taurani had then paid the hospital bills of the veteran actor and cared for her. The late actor’s mortal remains will be kept in Cooper Hospital for two days, for her family to come and see her. The funeral will be held on May 28 (HT Correspondent )
