Sharmila was 13 at her debut, so she will have 13 reasons I love her! And one more than Dharmendra, to make up for going after him. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Okay, let’s do this! A full 85! I broke it into 3 parts last year, but this year I think I will just do one massive post. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
I though about not posting this today, because it is Christmas, but then I thought a little more, and I realized it isn’t really a sad post at all. Sadhana passed away yesterday, which I learned through Aamir Khan’s twitter. I have no idea how he found out. Spies at the hospital?
Anyway, Sadhana sounds like a nice lady who had a pretty nice life, and then died. Which is a pretty nice epitaph!
(If you feel the need to honor her by watching one of her films, I highly recommend Waqt. It is very cheerful and Christmas appropriate, lots of family values.)
