Actor Abhilasha Patil, who appeared in movies like Chhicchore, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Good Newwz and Malaal, passed away on Tuesday due to Covid-19 complications. Abhilasha 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 and 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.”
Apart from Hindi films Chhichhore, , 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.
