The novel coronavirus is spreading like a wild fire and has been taking lives one after the other. Now, as per reports, Chhichhore and Good Newwz actress, Abhilasha Patil who appeared in many Marathi and Hindi films, succumbed to her COVID-19 complications and left for heavenly abode on Tuesday, May 04, 2021.
She was in her early 40s and is survived by her husband and son.
Sanjay Kulkarni, who shared screen space with Abhilasha Patil in Zee Yuva daily soap BaapManus, confirmed news of the actor’s demise to Indian Express and shared,
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.- Sanjay Kulkarni
Shocked by her untimely demise, several of Patil's former colleagues took to social media to pay tribute to the actress.
Her Prawaas co-star and director, Shashank Udapurkar, and actress Pallavi Ajay tweeted their condolences, hailing Patil's enthusiasm and work ethic on the sets.
Abhilasha Patil appeared in various Marathi and Hindi projects over the years, including the Bollywood movie Chhichhore, which featured Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.
Apart from Hindi films Chhichhore, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Good Newwz and Malaal, Abhilasha was also known for her work in Marathi movies like Te Aath Diwas, Pipsi, Bayko Deta Ka Bayko, Prawaas and Tujha Majha Arrange Marriage.
We pray for her departed soul to rest in peace and may God grant strength to the family to bear the loss.
