Britain-based Indian filmmaker Gurinder Chadha remembers Zohra Sehgal as an artist who "loved shocking you with her unorthodox approach to her life and art". And the filmmaker admits that her 1993 comedy drama "Bhaji On The Beach", an unorthodox take on Indian womanhood, wouldn`t have been possible without the late veteran.
