"I started working with her when she was already established and I felt apprehensive to work with her. She encouraged me a lot. I had great experience working with her. She was obedient and punctual," Kumar told reporters.
Kumar remembers that he used to call her an angel.
"She was a very down-to-earth person with no attitude, extraordinary human being and a very talented actress. I used to call her angel," he said.
Kumar says she loved her performances in 'Jab Jab Phool Khile', 'Ittefaq', 'Chhoti Behan' and 'Toofan'.
Noted actor Prem Chopra, known for playing villainous roles, says he was fond of Nanda not only as an actress, but as a person.
"I did not have the privilege to work with her, but I admired her work a lot. She was a very warm and loving woman. She had no tantrums. I had met her socially she was good to talk," Chopra told reporters.
"It is unfortunate that she is no more. My sentiments and prayers for the family. It is sad that a lovely woman like her has left us," he said.
