    A great loss she shall always be remembered for her unique and different style of acting . Besides Khuda Ki Basti and Bababan Khala ke Bettyan , her role in Zakia Akbar’s long play “Hajj e Akbar” was a masterpiece and classic along besides many other charters she portrayed in various PTV plays. She is and will remain a role model for the generations to come on screen. Recommend
