Veteran Bollywood actress Geeta Kapoor (57), who acted in over 100 films, died at an old-age home in Mumbai early this morning. The thespian was reportedly ignored by her children who left her at a private hospital in Gurgaon without clearing the medical bills. Knowing about her status through media channels, noted filmmaker and CBFC member Ashok Pandit has come forward to clear the hospital charges and later, joined her at an old-age home in Mumbai.
Geeta Kapoor, who was part of 1972's classic film Paakezah as Raj Kumar's second spouse, had a sudden and tragic death on Saturday morning and while revealing about her death, director Ashok Pandit said - 'We tried our best to keep her healthy but her wait for son and daughter made her weaker day by day.'
When the veteran actress was getting treated in Mumbai hospital, she spoke to media - 'he (son) used to beat me if tried to correct him and I was served meal once in 4 days. As I denied going to an old-age home, he intentionally doesn't feed me and now, he ran away by admitting me in the hospital. I don't care even if I lose my life, but I wanted to see my son for one last time.' Too sad, isn't it.
Who would want their children to ignore like that during the last days of their life and even after her death, their children failed to turn up for the last rites of mother. While Geeta Kapoor's son Raja is a choreographer, her daughter Pooja is working as an air hostess.
