Sushma Anand, Wife of filmmaker Vijay Anand, passed away on Sunday.

Sushma Anand, wife of acclaimed filmmaker Vijay Anand, reportedly passed away on Sunday, August 27. The reason for her death is still awaited. As per an interview in Filmfare, Sushma revealed that she met Vijay Anand (also known as Goldie), brother of Dev Anand, on the set of Ram Balram.  Vijay is popularly known for directing and producing acclaimed films such as Guide (1965), Teesri Manzil (1966), Jewel Thief (1967) and Johny Mera Naam (1970).

Sushma told the publication, “Goldie (Vijay ji’s nickname) and I got married in 1978 during Ram Balram’s shoot. He liked my simplicity. I understood his temperament. He rarely lost his cool. I was the one who’d lose my temper. I was crazier. I’d deliberately do things to annoy him. Sometimes, he managed me. Sometimes I managed him.” 

Sushma remembered her husband and said, “He rarely complimented me, but when he did, it made me happy. He liked me in sarees and sometimes picked up sarees and pieces of jewellery for me. We loved to travel. Our best holiday was in Hampstead in London just after our marriage. There were theatres across the road. We shopped a lot. Once when we were in Europe, he quietly slipped out. “Yeh lene gaya tha,” he said later showing me a sweater he had bought for me.” Vijay Anand passed away on February 23, 2004.
