director Kalpana Lajmi passes away in Mumbai


On Sunday, friends and family came into take part in the cremation of writer and director Kalpana Lajmi who passed away the same morning after suffering from chronic kidney disease and liver failure. The 64-year-old filmmaker’s last rites were performed by her brother Dev, while her mother Lalita Lajmi was also present at the cremation.

The filmmaker's close friend Soni Razdan was among the few from the film industry who had gathered to bid adieu to Kalpana Lajmi. Filmmaker Shyam Benegal and actress Shabana Azmi were also present at the funeral.

Although her name might not readily make it to the top across most lists of influential filmmakers, her cinema included some stand out films such as Ek Pal (1986), Rudaali (1993) and Darmiyaan: In Between (1997), which was one of the first mainstream films that addressed the third gender. What made Ms Lajmi a truly great filmmaker was not just the manner in which her films captured many wonderful moments or the zeitgeist or spoke about real people but how they managed to leave an indelible impression both on the medium as well as the audiences.
