The actress said, “On her 107th birthday ..here we have the OG Sita who was at one point and still is to my way of thinking one of the most beautiful women in the world. One of sharpest and most forward thinking women of her time. Who bought her own filters from the United States when they were not available here for her close ups in films!!! Who knew and managed not only her own finances but her daughters as well and with great success I might add. And yes also had a huge hand in raising her seven grand daughters. This is true #feminism ! For all those who ask me what it means and where I get my attitude from .. 🙏 #ramrajya #bharatmilap #rambaan #sita #shobhanasamarth #mygrandmother #theOG”
While Shobhana was a great actress, her legacy has continued over the years. She had three daughters and one son. Her daughters Nutan and Tanuja went on to become really popular as actresses and have their own fan following. This legacy has continued Tanuja’s daughters Kajol and Tanisha Mukjerji both. Nutan’s son Mohnish Bahl is also a well-known actor and his daughter Pranutan has continued the legacy.
Apart from Tanuja and Nutan, Shobhana’s other two kids – Chatura and Jaideep didn’t become actors. While Chatura is an artist, Jaideep is an advertising producer.
