Once a part of big banner films such as Chandni and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge , Achala Sachdev, 88, is now shunned by the industry she's been a part of since childhood. The actress has been ailing and bedridden for the last three months at a hospital in Pune but none from the film industry has bothered to inquire about her health. Achala Sachdev was recently seen on TV too. Achala Sachdev had broken her left leg after a fall in her house three-and-a-half months ago. Since then, she is being treated at the Poona Hospital and Research Centre. The MRI scan conducted later revealed that a clot that had formed in the artery close to the heart had moved away and fragmented into smaller clots and entered the brain vessels. Rajeev Nanda, a family friend of Achala has been calling and informing people in the industry, her relatives and friends about her health. Achala Sachdev has acted in over 250 films. Her most memorable role was as Balraj Sahani's wife in the 1965 blockbuster Waqt , where she was part of the legendary song Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen . Sachdev's son, Jyotin, is a business consultant who lives in the US. Her daughter stays in Mumbai. However, neither of them are in touch with her. Tweet
