Kavita Chaudhary Of ‘Lalitaji’ And ‘Udaan’ Fame, Dies

MUMBAI (IANS) – Actress Kavita Chaudhary, who is known for playing the role of an IPS officer in the television show ‘Udaan’, passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The actress, who was battling poor health for a long time, passed away in Amritsar. Her last rites were performed on February 16.

As per media reports, she breathed her last at Parvati Devi Hospital in Amritsar where she was being treated.

‘Udaan’, which was written and directed by Kavita herself, aired in 1989. The show was based on the life of her sister Kanchan Chaudhary Bhattacharya, who became the second IPS officer after Kiran Bedi.

Kavita inspired a lot of young women as at the time there was very little female representation in the police force. ‘Udaan’ gained immense popularity and made her a household name. The show was re-telecast on Doordarshan during COVID-19 pandemic.

Chaudhary 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, Chaudhary’s co-star in ‘Udaan’ was acclaimed actor-filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

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