Raj Babbar too shared a picture of Smita Patil from an event where the actress looks into the camera beautifully. The senior actor wrote saying, “You were just 31 when you left us. The short pathway of memories you walked, left so many indelible impressions that your absence isn’t easy to believe. You saw so little & yet had so much to showcase. Your hasty retreat from our lives would always remain unexplained.”
