She would be laid to rest at a London cemetery on the same day.

Salman said that the delay in her mother’s burial was caused by the lack of space at a nearby graveyard.

End an era of Pakistani films

Her demise brought end to an era of Pakistani films. From the late 50s to the 90s, Shamim Ara stayed active on the film circuit first as an actress, later as a producer and finally as a director with countless hits to her credits.

Be it her role of a Tawaif opposite Mohammad Ali in Aag Ka Darya, her brilliant acting in Saheli opposite Nayyar Sultana and Darpan or her double role in Humraaz, Shamim Ara captured the attention of the public with her innocence.

She could act as well as dance in an era when females didn’t venture into films due to family pressure; it was the family of Putli Bai (her maiden name) that encouraged her to go for films and their decision proved to be beneficial to Pakistani films. She was one of the top actresses in the 60s. – SAMAA
