Shashikala Jawalkar is a veteran actress born in Solapur, Maharashtra started her acting career at the age of five and ruled the cinema industry for almost six decades, and appeared in over 100 films. Best known for her supporting roles in the 1960s-70s films like Aarti, Gumrah, and Chhote Sarkar, has away on Sunday at the age of 88.

And this news was confirmed by Ashoke Pandit, filmmaker and president of the Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association, and B.N. Tiwari, president of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees, “Shashikalaji has passed away. She was 88. We don’t know the exact details of her demise,” Mr. Tiwari said.

Personalities like legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, producer Naved Jafri, Union minister Jitendra Singh, and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar paid rich tributes to the late star.

Ms. Mangeshkar called Shashikala a gifted artiste who did full justice to every character she played. “I am saddened after learning about the demise of the talented actor Shashikala. She played every kind of role with equal elan. May she rest in peace. My condolences to her family,” she said.

Shashikala Jawalkar’s career breakthrough came in 1959 when she appeared in Bimal Roy’s Sujata, one of the early movies in Hindi cinema to explore the issue of casteism.
