RIP Zohra Sehgal (1912-2014)
Sad news of the passing earlier this month of Indian actress and choreographer Zohra Sehgal (27th April, 1912–10th July, 2014).
A truly wonderful performer and a very well-known face in British productions, appearing in such works as The Jewel in the Crown (1984), Bhaji on the Beach (1993), Bend It Like Beckham (2002), Anita and Me (2002), to name but a few. She always stood out, invariably bringing a smile or a laugh to the viewer.
RIP Zohra Sehgal (1912-2014). Thank you for all the joy and entertainment you brought through your work. God bless.
