‘Heartbreaking’ : Paridhi Shama on Co-Star Manisha Yadav’s demise

Actress Manisha Yadav, who was best known for her performance as Salima Begum in Zee TV’s soap opera Jodha Akbar, has died. Reportedly, she died of a brain haemorrhage but the exact cause and time of Manisha’s death have not been revealed yet. Mourning the death, her Jodha Akbar co-star Paridhi Sharma shared a still of Manisha Yadav from the show on her Instagram story and wrote: “This news is so heartbreaking. RIP Manisha.”

Paridhi Sharma also offered condolences to Manisha Yadav’s family in an interview with the Times Of India. She said, “I wasn’t in constant touch with her after our show went off air. But we have a WhatsApp group which is named Mughals and all the actresses who were begums in the show are a part of that group. So that’s how we stay in touch and if anything important is to be shared about anyone’s life, we do that on the group. I got to know about this yesterday on the group and I was shocked.”

She further added, “Manisha was a wonderful actor to work with. Her energy was always high and she was a chirpy person. We had a great time shooting together for the show. I remember she was always full of life. Hearing about her death is really saddening for me and what’s even more bothering is that she has a one-year-old baby. My heart goes out to her family.”

Manisha’s child turned a year old in July when she put up a post on her Twitter saying, “Happy 1st Birthday my precious baby!!! My little boy, you have been such a light in my life during a season of a hard year. I’m so blessed and thankful to be your Mumma. I love you so much.” One of her another read :
