New Delhi:

Veteran actress Geeta Kapoor breathed her last on Saturday at an old age home in Mumbai’s Andheri. She was 67.

The Pakeezah fame actress was allegedly abandoned by her children last year. Geeta Kapoor’s son had brought her to the hospital to treat her fluctuating blood pressure. He apparently her on the pretext of withdrawing cash from an ATM but didn’t return.

Her son named Raja is said to be choreographer while her daughter Pooja works as an air hostess.

Ashoke Pandit, who paid the yesteryear actress’ bills at the hospital, confirmed the news of her death on Twitter. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) member wrote, ‘’We tried our best to keep her healthy but her wait for her Son & daughter made her weaker day by day’’. 

Ashoke Pandit thanked producer Ramesh Taurani for the constant support.

“She died a natural death around 9 am in the old age home Jeevan Asha, where she had been since the last year. She was getting weak and was on a liquid diet’’, Ashoke Pandit told PTI.

“She died in the hope that her son, Raja, will come one day to take her from the old age home and that is more tragic,” Pandit told the news agency.

Ashoke Pandit hoped that Geeta Kapoor's children return back to bid her final goodbye. ''Everyone around her tried their best to keep her healthy & happy. But there was always an inherent sorrow in her, longing for her children. We hope that her children return to bid her a final goodbye'', Pandit wrote on Twitter.

Geeta Kapoor was part of over hundred films including Razia Sultan and Pakeezah.
