Sanjay Kulkarni, who shared screen space with Abhilasha Patil in Zee Yuva daily soap BaapManus, confirmed the news of the actor’s demise to indianexpress.com. He said, “Last evening around six, I got a call from Jyoti Patil, who worked with us in BaapManus, about Abhilasha’s poor health. I learned 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.”
