Sushant Singh Rajput’s Chhichhore co-star Abhilasha Patil has died due to COVID-19 complications. The actress breathed her last yesterday evening. Sanjay Kulkarni who was her co-star in Zee  Yuva daily soap “Baap Manus” confirmed the news of her passing away to Indian express. He was quoted as saying, “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.”

He had added, “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.”

Many remarkable actors from the Marathi film industry mourned the actress’s death. Actor-director Shankar Udapurkar mourned the actress’s demise by sharing a post on social media, “Abhilasha Patil, very hard working and energetic co artist.. We worked together in PRAWAAS. Don’t have words to express. RIP Abhilasha Ji (sic).”

May her soul rest in peace!
