Suchitra shared the sad news of Sujata Kumar’s death on Twitter:

“Our beloved Sujata Kumar has passed away and moved on to a better place leaving us with an umimaginable void. She left us an hour ago at 11.26 pm on the 19th of august 2018..Life can never be the same again...”

The actress is a cancer survivor and it is unfortunate that the Big C revisited her. After beating the ailment, she made comeback with Gauri Shinde’s comeback film, ‘English Vinglish’ and played Sridevi’s elder sister. The actress-model categorically said in one of her interviews, six years ago, “I didn’t have any creditable role under my belt; at least not until Gauri (Shinde, director) offered me the film. My earlier projects are not worthy of mention and where I had meaty roles the film flopped miserably.

May her soul rest in peace!
