Grieving the legacy of his onscreen mother figure and off-screen mentor, Shah Rukh Khan remembered Kaveri Amma in a heartfelt post.
May her soul rest in peace. Kishori ‘Amma’ will be sorely missed. Especially how she used to reprimand me for smoking. May Allah look after her. pic.twitter.com/E8UGZMZ0Zj— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 19, 2020
One of her most inspiring, heartwarming roles that has left an imprint on Hindi Cinema remains that of the wise and down-to-earth Kaveri Amma.

Like that ‘#KaveriAmma‘ character which has been seen in childishness and you have seen an imaginary grandmother. I never saw my grandmother, always thought it would have happened. Life is missing the part that will never come. (2/2) pic.twitter.com/mhRhl7YzJS— Shivam Dixit (@shivamdixit_17) February 19, 2020
#KishoriBallal, veteran Kannada actress is no more. May she rest in peace.— August Landmesser (@IndianVeritas) February 18, 2020
Was known in Karnataka for several memorable roles, but the pan-India audience knew her best as #KaveriAmma from #Swades. A stunning performance, to say the least.@FilmHistoryPic @iamsrk @AshGowariker pic.twitter.com/Zt0qIzH2TK
Really saddened to learn that veteran actress #KishoriBallal is no more. ☹️— Akshay Kumar G (@AkshayShakira) February 19, 2020
Although she played many great roles in her long career, she will be best remembered for her unforgettable performance as #KaveriAmma in Swades. Rest in peace. 🙏
I knew #KishoriBallal personally. Even after becoming such an icon in #Swades, she retained her simplicity and humility and came to the studio to give me an audition without any fuss.. few years ago in Bengaluru. She was lively as ever and giggled like a school girl— Nalinii Rathnam (@nalinirathnam) February 18, 2020
One of my favorite movies, some or the other way i can relate myself to Mohan.— Prandeep Dutta (@m1k3_rul3z) February 19, 2020
