Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 408

Adieu Sushila Rani Patel

Actor of silent cinema and classical singer by profession Sushila Rani Patel is no more. As long as she lived she lived life king size. She started her day with riaaz and ended her day with prayers. At 90 she singlehandedly organized her annual cultural event at her home attended by stalwats from the filmdom.

Her home Girnar in Pali Hill is a landmark address  for those associated with show business and journalism. Her husband Baburao Patel, editor of FilmIndia entertained many parties while he lived.

After his demise, Sushila Rani Patel said adieu to films and concentrated on music.

Her legacy is carried forward by her devoted students.
