Congress president Sonia Gandhi Tuesday condoled the death of renowned British actor and director Richard Attenborough.


In a letter to Sheila Sim, widow of the 90-year-old actor-director who directed the Oscar winning biopic "Gandhi" in 1982, Gandhi described Attenborough as a "true friend of India".

"I am grieved to learn of the passing away of Lord Richard Attenborough. During his long career as an actor, producer and director, he lit up the stage and screen with his inimitable brilliance. But his finest hour was as the director of 'Gandhi', a film that took the story of modern India's greatest man to all over the world," Gandhi said.

She added: "I join thousands of Indians in mourning the loss of a true friend of India and a great actor and director."
