The late actor looked beautiful as she flashed her million-dollar smile while she sat next to Sanjay, who looked cute as a button.

Nargis, who starred in numerous popular Hindi movies, including the Oscar-nominated movie ‘Mother India’, ‘Shree 420’, ‘Awara’, ‘Barsaat’ and ‘Raat Aur Din’ was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She died on May 3, 1981.
