They shared the screen space in one of their best movies Anupama and Sharmila Tagore still remembers this experience with Shashikala. “Shashikalji was already a very experienced actress whereas I was relatively new when we did. Anupama together. It was Hrishida who gave her a very positive role in Anupama because Hrishida always saw the good in every character. Otherwise, Shashikalaji had been classified as the negative woman, so much so that I once heard that during an outdoor shooting the heroine was allowed to use the bathroom in a friendly local’s house. , but not Shashikalaji. It shows how convincingly she played the bad woman and how convinced the audience is when they see the image on the screen. I remember that once I was shooting on location. After the shooting, I took off my wig without thinking, and there was a collective gasp among the spectators, ”recalls Sharmilaji.

Sharmilaji praises Shashikala in Anupama. “She played a warm talkative extrovert. I was the introvert. She completed my character so well.

She doesn’t remember much of interacting with Shashikala during Anupama or Devar. “It’s strange. We were all together during the outdoor shoots. But I don’t remember much interacting with her during the shooting of Anupama or Devar. Shashikalaji was also an important part of another film Choti Bahu where I played the main role. During this movie, I remember interacting a lot with Nirupa Royji because her son damaged his eye (Sharmilaji’s husband Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi had a damaged eye). But I don’t remember any similar conversations with Shashikalaji.

What Sharmilaji remembers is Shashikala’s second phase as an actress. “She moved to Pune and performed very successful roles and films in Marathi. Like Bengali cinema, Marathi cinema has many literary resources to draw on. She has been offered brilliant versatile roles and I really love the work she has done in Marathi. Having said that, I wish Hindi cinema hadn’t typed it. But then it is like that.
