Bollywood Actresses who died young!

Davya Bharti: This cute bubbly actress died at the age of 19 on April 5, 1993. It was said that she allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the 5th floor of her building. Fans are still not sure if she was drunk and fell off the building or she was murdered. Though Divya was a part of the industry for barely four years, she managed to leave an unforgettable mark in Bollywood with movies like Deewana opposite Rishi Kapoor and Shah Rukh Khan.

Nafisa Joseph:Successful model and actress Nafisa Joseph passed away when her career had just started shaping up. She died at the age of 26 on July 29, 2004. She was also a VJ on MTV and was crowned Miss India in 1997. Nafisa, who was everyone's darling knocked everyone for a six by hanging herself to death. It's said that her fiancee had the previous day, called off the wedding following differences of opinion over his earlier marriage and divorce. The only question that can come to one's mind now is - Why is a woman's universe still a man ?

Samita Patil:It was a great loss for Bollywood, the day Smita Patil passed away. She died at a young age of 31 on December 31, 1986. This outstanding beautiful actress passed away giving birth to her youngest son Pratiek Babbar, who was seen in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na as Genelia's younger brother. Smita was not just an amazing actress but also a newsreader and a photographer.

Madhubala:One of the most beautiful face of Bollywood was Madhubala. This legendary actress too died at an early age of 36 on February 23, 1969. Her performances in films like Mughal-E-Azam, Howra Bridge and Kaala Paani to name a few are remembered till date. The sad part was that she was surrounded by a number of people when she was a big name, but during her last days when she was bedridden, she had no one besides her and she died a lonely death.

Geeta Bali:Small pox killed Geeta Bali at a young age of 36.
Her performances in Baazi and Albela made her a star to love. She married the superstar, Shammi Kapoor, and had two children. But, before she could come back to films in a film named, Rano, she got bed ridden by the deadly disease.

Meena Kumari: known as the 'tragedy queen' of Hindi films, rose to fame with her tragedy-stricken women's role and the struggle they do in their lives. It is told that, Meena Kumari's maternal grandmother was the widow of Rabindranath Tagore's younger brother.
Most notable performances of Meena Kumari can be seen in Pakeezah, Phool Aur Patthar and Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai. Although she was very successful in films but her real life was also full of tragedies she portrayed in the movie. She started drinking too much and died due to alcoholism in 1972, at the age of 39.

    It's such a tragic loss that these GORGOUS women died so young as they could have lived to achieve much more than what they already did do .
    This is however SOLID PROOF how great they were in comparison to so called actresses of the modern era like SOHALI KHAN ,EOSHA DEOL and RANI MUKAGHEE all who can't act at all.
    How about the likes of PRIYANKA CHOPRA ,NEHA DUPIA and KATRINA KAIF ? all who are DROP DEAD GORGOUS but again can't act to save their lives!!!!!
    I for ONE was madly in love with SRIDEVI when I was still a child and she was at the height of her popuality,still I hate to admit but she was never a good actress at her time it was the LOVELY but no near as popular JAYA PRODA who I think deserved the attention and the love which SRIDEVI did get instead.
    MEENA KUMARI was unmatched for acting and that she died at just 39 is proof enough how greater she could have and should have been!
