From the mid-1960s to the raging 80s, a star captivated the audience with her talented acting. Everyone knew her by one name, Kabori.
Previously in an interview when she was asked about death, she said she was scared of it.
The veteran actress said, "There are many doors humans have to cross in life. Death is the last one. My eyes fill with tears when I think of death. Kabori will never come back, not even for a word. It's scary to think I will have to leave everyone one day. So I want to work for people until death. As long as I live, I want to be close to people, I want to be in their hearts."
The beloved actress Sarah Begum Kabori breathed her last at 12:20 am on Saturday at Sheikh Russel Gastro Liver Institute and Hospital in the capital.
Kabori caught fever and tested positive for Covid-19 recently. She was hospitalised on 7 April. As her condition deteriorated, doctors put her on life support.
She will be laid to eternal rest at the Banani graveyard in Dhaka, followed by her namaz-e-janaza and state guard of honour.
Kabori is and will be in the hearts of millions. She is as eternal as her magical performances.
