Remember the actress who played the captain of the Women’s Hockey team in Shah Rukh Khan’s Chak De! India? We are talking about Vidya Malvade. Although she had appeared in movies before, Chak De! India became her breakthrough film. Did you know she entered the film industry after her husband’s death, two decades ago? Vidya Malvade had studied law and started her career as an air hostess. It was during her time as an air hostess that she met Captain Arvind Singh Bagga, a pilot with Alliance Air. They got married in 1997, but her world turned upside down when her husband passed away in 2000, when his plane crashed in Patna. Vidya was only 27 years old at that time.
Vidya revealed in an interview with Siddharth Kannan that she was in Germany when she heard about her husband’s death. She said that she was so shattered that she contemplated ending her life. She even bought a few sleeping pills from the local chemist.
