If you think the war against Coroavirus is coming to an end, think again because Indian cinema has lost veteran actress Ashalata Wabgaonkar after she tested positive while shooting for a TV serial. The 79-year-old Marathi actress was shooting for the show Aai Mazi Kalubai when she contracted the novel and fatal virus along with 27 crew and cast members, reports NDTV. She was soon shifted to a private hospital in Maharashtra’s Satara but the theatre personality developed complications later and succumbed to the brief illness yesterday.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, the grieving family couldn’t be there during her last rites which was then carried out by her co-star Alka Kubal. She told Mumbai Mirror, “Her family couldn’t come due to the ongoing pandemic and told us to cremate her in Satara and not bring her body down to Mumbai. I’m honoured I could fulfil her last wish given that she was like a mother to me.” Needless to say, it’s dark time for the entertainment industry. Celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Nimrat Kaur and Renuka Shahane have expressed their grief over her demise. Even Chief Minister of Goa, Pramod Sawant and other dignitaries have also expressed condolences.

Ashalata Wabgaonkar has acted in over 100 Hindi ,Marathi, Konkani films, dramas . She has starred in Hindi films like Ahista Ahista, Woh Saat Din, Ankush, Namak Halaal, Shaukeen Yaadon Ki Kasam among others. And has also sang Konkani cataram and has written Gard Sabhowati, a book about her journey in films.

Meanwhile, reports also claim that MNS Cine Workers Association has threatened to forcibly stop shootings if safety protocols are not followed. President of the association, Ameya Khopkar said, “Some producers, in order to cut costs, are not following the protocols issued by the government in view of the Covid-19 threat. They are putting the lives of the actors and the technicians at risk. I am warning that if we find any such case, we will crack down on such elements and stop their shoots.”
