Popular Marathi actor Abhilasha Patil has passed away due to COVID-19 complications. Patil is best known for her roles in films like Good Newzz and Chhichhore apart from being a household name in the Marathi circuit.
Actor Sanjay Kulkarni, who acted opposite Patil in BaapManus confirmed the demise to Indian Express.
Kulkarni 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 a 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.”
Following this, several Marathi actors and directors mourned her demise. She is survived by her husband and son.
May her soul rest in peace.
