Mumbai- The Cine & TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) on Friday mourned the demise of veteran actress-model Kavita Chaudhry (67), who passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest in Amritsar late on Thursday night.

“CINTAA expresses its condolence on the demise of Kavita Chaudhary, ” it said in a social media post.

In a condolence post, actor Amit Behl said: “RIP Kavita Chaudhary. Is baar aapne lambi udaan bhar li, Naman, " tagging NSD and CINTAA.

Chaudhary was known for her role as an IPS officer in the popular television serial 'Udaan' telecast on Doordarshan (1989-1991). She later became a household name with the ‘Lalita-ji’ series of ads for a detergent brand.

An alumnus of the prestigious National School of Drama (NSD), Chaudhary’s co-star in 'Udaan' was acclaimed actor-filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

'Udaan' was inspired by the real-life story of her elder sister and IPS officer Kanchan Choudhary-Bhattacharya, the second woman IPS officer in India and the country’s first state Director-General of Police of Uttarakhand.

Kavita Chaudhary had two other big TV shows, 'Your Honour' and 'IPS Diaries', besides other contributions to the glamour and entertainment world.
