Smita Patil left for the heavenly abode in 1986, but her absence is felt even today. Whenever names of the best actresses of Indian cinema are discussed, Smita’s name will definitely top the list. Smita’s death created a void which will never be filled.

Remembering the actress on her death anniversary, Raj Babbar penned a heartfelt post for her.

Sharing a beautiful picture of his late wife, Smita Patil, Babbar took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Today decades ago, you went away silently. Each year this day reminds me that you shall be missed more with every passing year.”

In her acting career, Smita was honoured with a number of awards including two National Film Awards. She was also conferred with Padma Shri in 1985. The power-house performer died on December 13, 1986, due to childbirth complications. She was only 31-years old then. Raj and Smita share a son Prateik Babbar, who is also an actor.

A few days back, Prateik had shared a major throwback picture of his mother.
