Famous actress Abhilasha Patil dies due to COVID-19 complications

On Tuesday, actress Abhilasha Patil passed away after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 47-year-old actress had featured in several Bollywood movies like Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘Chhichhore’, Varun Dhawan starrer ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and Akshay Kumar  starrer ‘Good Newwz’.

The co-star of her show BaapManus, Sanjay Kulkarni, confirmed the news of her death. 

Talking with Indian Express, he said, “Last evening around six, I got a call from Jyoti Patil, who worked with us in BaapManus, about Abhilasha’s poor health. I learnt she had gone to Benaras where she got fever and on her return to Mumbai, she tested positive for coronavirus. I tried reaching out to her, but both of her numbers were switched off. Then around 8.30 pm, actor Anand Prabhu, who played our son on the same show, informed me about her demise. This has been so shocking because she had so much to achieve in life. She had plans. Abhilasha was kind-hearted and such a hardworking artiste. It’s a huge loss to the industry.” 

Besides Bollywood films, Abhilasha had also featured in Marathi TV shows and movies like ‘Tujha Manjha Arrange Marriage’, ’Bayko Deta Ka Bayko’ and ‘Pipsi’.
