Earlier this week, the 41-year-old actress mourned the death of a crew member Irfan, from her show Thapki Pyar Ki. In a long Instagram post, she revealed that Irfan was already battling a long illness and that his health condition deteriorated after he tested positive for the coronavirus. She wrote in her post: “The guy inside this, our Irfan, is no more. He was unwell from a long time. I kept on asking him for his reports to try to understand what the basic issue was that was creating all his health problems since the last 2 years but… Gulab Dada told me of his being in hospital and on a bad state some days ago and then his weak body contracted corona. Today news from Susu, Irfan is no more. D**n it. This is the second, lovely, hardworking, talented, person I am losing in this manner. I am no medicine person but if we get to the correct doctor at the correct time for correct diagnosis we can save a life…That’s what I believe. I feel like s**t right now.”
