The veteran actor, renowned for her contributions to both Hindi and Marathi cinema with a repertoire of more than 80 films, breathed her last at her residence in Bandra. Seema Deo had been contending with Alzheimer's disease for the past three years.
Her son Abhinay Deo shared, "She passed away at 8.30-9 am at her residence in Bandra due to old age. She had been withdrawn completely, and eventually it is just old age.

She had dementia leading up to Alzheimer's and she was suffering from it for over three years."ALSO READ: Angad Bedi's father & former Indian cricket captain Bishan Singh Bedi passes away at 77
