"Her death leaves a void in the world of art and creativity which will be difficult to fill, Mukherjee added."
New Delhi, July 11 - President Pranab Mukherjee Friday condoled the death of cinema and theatre artiste Zohra Sehgal and said her demise leaves a void in the world of art and creativity which will be difficult to fill.

In a condolence message to her daughter, Kiran Sehgal, Mukherjee said Zohra was a veteran actress, theatre artist and TV personality who delighted countless Bollywood and Hollywood film watchers by her memorable acting and unabated energy.

She will always be remembered for her films like 'Bhaji on the Beach', 'Cheeni Kum', 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' and 'Saawariya', among others. Her singular contribution to Indian theatre and cinema was recognised through a number of awards, including the Padma Vibhushan, the Padma Bhushan and the Padma Shri, he said.

Her death leaves a void in the world of art and creativity which will be difficult to fill, Mukherjee added.

Conveying heartfelt condolences to the members of the bereaved family and Sehgal's countless fans and friends, Mukherjee said: I pray to the Almighty to give you and your family the strength and courage to bear this irreparable loss.
