TV actor Roohi Bano passes away in Turkey

Veteran television actor Roohi Bano died today in Istanbul after a kidney failure. Renowned for her rich contributions to Pakistani television dramas from the 1970s to the 1980s, Roohi joined the television industry in psychology at the Government College, Lahore.

Her appearance in a quiz competition led to a prolific television career, beginning with Kiran Kahani, a Haseena Moin-penned.

Her growing stature as an actor in the 1970s led her to appear in a few movies like Palki, Kainat and Goonj Uthi Shehnai, but it was TV that made her home.

Her iconic performances such as Qila Kahani, Zard Gulab, Hairatkada, Darwaza are always remembered as golden moments in the history of Pakistan’s TV channels.

In 2011, she received the Lux Style Unilever Lifetime Achievement Award from the chairman. Despite her obvious brilliance as an actor, the career of Roohi was shortened by personal tragedy and conflict. After two unsuccessful marriages, in 2005 she lost her only son to murder— a loss she fought hard to endure.

In 2015, she also survived an attack on her life when her son’s friend attacked her because she refused to sell her residence in Gulberg. During the last decade of her life, she was treated for schizophrenia at the Lahore Fountain House.
