Celebrated filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi was hospitalized here on Monday but her health condition is improving, a hospital official said.

The maker of "Rudali", who has been suffering from illness for quite some time, rushed to the Kokilaben Hospital on Monday and admitted to ICU. However, the hospital's Executive Director Ram Narain told IANS that she was "stable". "She is not on the ventilator and her health condition is improving," he said.

Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit said that the Indian Film and Television Directors' Association (IFTDA) has been supporting her treatment.

"IFTDA has always stood for the industry members and we help out in whichever way we can. I spoke to Aamir Khan and Rohit Shetty, who readily helped out," he said.

Starting her career as an assistant director with the legendary filmmaker Shyam Benegal, who is also her relative, Lajmi's work came to everyone's notice with "Rudali" featuring Dimple Kapadia, that won three National Awards.

She also produced and directed films like "Darmiyaan: In Between", "Daman: A Victim of Marital Violence", and "Chingaari" among other women-centric films. Having worked with actresses like Tabu, Kiron Kher, Raveena Tandon, Sushmita Sen among others, Lajmi was also the business partner of Assamese singer, the late Bhupen Hazarika.
