sana saeed father death janta curfew

Sana Saeed lost her father Abdul Ahad Saeed on March 22, the day Janta Curfew was observed in India in the wake of Coronavirus outbreak. Unfortunately, the actress was stuck in the US and she couldn’t fly back to India to attend her father’s funeral.


As per a report in Hindustan Times, the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ actress’ father died due to prolonged illness. He was an Urdu poet. Sana had gone to the US to attend an event when she learned about her father’s sudden demise on March 22.

“My dad was a diabetes patient, and this led to multiple organ failure. It was around 7 am in LA when I got the news and I wanted to rush back home and hug my mother and sisters. The circumstances under which I lost my father were very unfair. But I know in my heart that he was really suffering and he’s definitely in a better place now,” she told the daily.

Here’s an old post the actress had shared on Father’s Day.

Recalling how her family had only three hours to perform the funeral on the Janta Curfew day, Sana further added, “On their way, they were stopped by the cops to check, but after seeing the death certificate, they allowed them to go. Though I wasn’t there physically, my sister kept texting me every time during the ceremony.” 

The actress is still not sure when she will get to come back home as flights have been either banned or restricted amidst the Coronavirus outbreak.
