Yesteryear Diva the late Parveen Babi has left her assets for the needy women and children in her will. The actress who was found dead in her Juhu home in January 2005 was living an isolated life. She was suffering from some psychological problems. Now eleven years after her death the High Court has ratified her will. Babi’s philanthropy will truly pave way for the better future for many.
Sources said, Babi’s uncle Muradkhan M Babi had claimed to be left in charge of Babi’s assets comprising of of her Juhu apartment, her house in Junagadh, Gujarat, some jewellery and bank deposits.
Muradkhan M Babi produced a will as per which it was revealed that Parveen Babi had wanted to form a trust. He was to manage it and divert 70% of the funds for the upliftment of women and children. 10% of the assets were to be donated to Babi alma mater St Xavier’s college Ahmedabad. 20 % of the assets were willed to Muradkhan M Babi.
Parveen Babi’s relatives had questioned the Diva’s will, they were of a view that it was not a legitimate one. Babi uncle had then moved the court in 2005 and had requested the will to be probated. His claims were supported by two witnesses to the actress will. Finally, after a wait of eleven years, the High Court has given the decision in his favor. Justice Patel directed the HC registry to grant letters allowing the administration of the will to Babi’s uncle Muradkhan M Babi by December 23 this year.
Truly a magnanimous gesture by the actress who was supposed to be not in her senses by many. We truly salute her gesture.
