    Its a very sad news to Konkani theatre people. Minnabai was a great great actress who acted in number of Konkani plays with Benna Ruzai.

    The great stage of Don Bosco Hall had brought them together. She had supported Bennabab in every aspect of life. Very gentle and kind hearted Minnabai had been a source of inspiration to Bennabab in good and bad times. Together they formed Benaar Kala Kutam and staged many Konkani social and religious plays as well.

    Both of them acted in Bhogsanne Konkani movie. Minnabai was felicitated by Konkani Natak Sabha for her immemnse service to the Konkani stage. Our deepest sympathies to Bennabab.May God grant him strength and courage to bear this irreperable loss.May God grant her eternal rest.
