EXPIRED: 11/10/09 – Simple Kapadia, 51, Bollywood actress and costume designer, has died after battling cancer for three years.

Born of an acting family, Kapadia is the older sister of super star actress Dimple Kapadia,  aunt of Twinkle and Rinke Khanna, and sister-in-law of Rajesh Khanna with whom she began her career at the age of 18 when she was paired opposite him in “Anurodh.”

Struggling to step out from under her superstar sister’s shadow, Simple Kapadia appeared in about 20 movies turning in notable performances with “Ahsaas,” “Shaaka,” “Jeevan Dhara” and “Lootmaar.” She quit acting in 1986 after “Pyar Ke Do Pal.”

Later in 1994, she worked as a costume designer for “Rudaali” and won a National award for costume design.
