Others like Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Shabana Azmi and Abhishek Bachchan took to social media to mourn her.
 
In a career spanning over five decades and over 400 films, Shammi did everything from lead roles to character roles to bit-sized parts. Toward her later years, she replayed the garrulous granny over and over again.
 
Shammi began her career in a character part in Sheikh Mukhtar’s Ustaad Pedro (1951) before making her debut as a heroine in Malhar.
