Celebrities took to twitter to express their condolence.

Hiten Tejwani, actor: She was the eldest on the sets, but was very childlike. We all called her ‘Baa’. She was warm, friendly and lively. I worked with her for four years. She was very caring and lovable. 

Hussain Kuwajerwala, actor: Be it her professionalism or her personal behaviour, there was a lot to learn from her. I remember everyone used to call her ‘Baa’, and one hardly heard anyone call her by her name.  

Ronit Roy, actor: I feel sad about her demise. I offer my condolences to her family. At the same time, I feel happy that her soul is now free from sorrow. I will always remember her as the sweet Baa.

Ekta Kapoor, producer: I am shocked. She was the wife of my father’s friend, Om Shivpuri; that is how we came to know each other. She was Baa for all of us. 

Achint Kaur, actor: We used to share one make-up room. I loved her food and we often swapped our tiffin boxes. She was a simple person at heart.

Apara Mehta, actor: We had the longest association on KSBKBT. She was professional, and a humble human being. She had a great sense of humour too. She was a fine actor. I hadn’t met her in a while, but was in touch with her over the phone.
