Yesteryear actor Achala Sachdev passed away in Pune on Monday, said family sources. She was 91.

According to reports, Sachdev was bed-ridden for the past seven months at Poona Hospital and Research Centre (PHRC). Sachdev broke her left leg after a fall in her house nearly six months ago. A clot was diagnosed in the artery near her heart through an MRI scan, which eventually broke into small clots and made a place in her brain vessels.

Sachdev gained immense popularity by playing roles of mother and grandmother in Hindi films. Her most memorable roles include playing actor Balraj Sahni's wife in 1965 film WAQT and Kajol's grandmother in the film DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE in 1995.

Born on May 3, 1920, Sachdev made her film debut with FASHIONABLE WIFE in 1938 and acted in over 130 Hindi films in her career.

She charmed the audience by playing some memorable roles in several films like, NA TUM JAANO NA HUM, KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM, CHANDNI, KARM and ALBELA.
