Actress Minoo Mumtaz, also known as Malikunnisa Ali, died today in Toronto, Canada, where she resided with her husband Sayyed Ali Akbar, son, and three daughters. The actress was diagnosed with cancer a few days ago, and her condition swiftly deteriorated, culminating to her death today.

Confirming the news, her nephew Naushad says, "Since she was old, 80 plus, there wasn't much to be done. She was one of the loveliest people I had ever met".

Her younger brother Anwar Ali, who is also a part of films and now a producer, wrote, "Regret to inform that my loving sister Minoo Mumtaz, passed away (in Canada) a few minutes ago...
