A senior film critic, Nikhat, 53, passed away Friday after battling breast cancer.
"Nikhat Kazmi, a generous film critic from the Times of India stable, has passed away after a long struggle with cancer. A buoyant demeanor and a genuine lover of film, she was never too harsh in her assessments and comment," Amitabh wrote on bigb.bigadda.com.
"She was also rather liberal with the stars that she assigned to the ratings of the films released and in general was a much loved person in the community. Our prayers and condolences," he added.
