New Delhi: Remembering his mother Nargis Dutt on her birth anniversary, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt says he misses her even 29 years after her death.

Nargis died in 1981 after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer. Tuesday marks her 81st birth anniversary.

"It`s been 29 years now that my beloved mother left us. It`s her b`day today. As I remember her each time, everything comes to me in flashes," Sanjay posted on the microblogging site Twitter.

"Wishing my mom a lovely birthday. May god bless her soul. I know whereever she is, she must be happy. Love you ma."

Born as Fatima Rashid, Nargis made her screen debut as a child artist with `Talash-E-Haq` in 1935 and `Tamanna` (1942) was her first film as a full-fledged actress.

In her two-decade long career, Nargis appeared in several successful films like `Barsaat`, `Andaz`, `Awaara`, `Deedar`, `Shree 420` and `Chori Chori`.

She is still remembered for her role in Mehboob Khan`s Oscar-nominated rural drama `Mother India` that came in 1957. The following year she tied the knot with her co-star Sunil Dutt who played her son in the movie.
