She was a very jovial person, and because she and my dad worked together in Aar Par, they would talk a lot about cinema. On the film’s set my dad met her younger sister Noorjahan, and the two got married. Shakila aunty was very happy with the work she did, and was a content person. We will miss her much.Nasirr Khan, Actor (as reported by Indian Express)
