Since last year, Coronavirus has claimed the lives of several Bollywood celebs. Yesterday, we came across the reports of Chhichhore actress Abhilasha Patil dying due to Covid. And yet another veteran actress has lost her life to the deadly virus. Popular Bollywood and Bhojpuri actress Sripradha breathed her last on May 5. She died due to Covid related complications.

Confirming the news of Sripradha’s death, Cine And TV Artistes’ Association General Secretary (CINTAA) General Secretary Amit Behl told Times Of India, “The second wave of Covid has taken too many precious lives. What has already been written in the media about the people who have passed away don’t need to reiterate but yes Sripada was a senior member of our fraternity.”

Mourning her death, Behl further added, “She has done incredible work down South and as well as in Hindi cinema. It is very unfortunate that we have lost a very senior actress. We pray that her soul rests in peace. We also pray that the second wave of the pandemic doesn’t snatch too many precious lives especially from our trade.”

Sripradha has shared the screen space with actors like Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna, Gulshan Grover, and Govinda. She was also part of several popular Bhojpuri films. Her Hum Toh Ho Gayi Ni Tohar costar Ravi Kishen told the daily, “She was my co-artist. She had a great nature, very humble and decent. May God give her family the courage to bear her loss every day.”

Also known as Shree Prada, the veteran actress has films like Purana Purush, Aag Aur Chingari, Sholay Aur Toofan, Meri Lalkaar, Shaitani Ilaaka, Aazmaiyish, and Bewafa Sanam to her credit.

We extend deepest condolences to Sripradha’s family and friends. May her soul rest in peace.
