Television actor Manisha Yadav, known for playing Salima Begum in the Zee TV show Jodha Akbar, died on Friday. Reportedly, the cause of her death was a brain haemorrhage. Her co-star Paridhi Sharma was devastated and wrote on Instagram Stories, “This news is so heartbreaking. RIP @manisha_mannu.”

Paridhi said in an interview that she was shocked to hear that Manisha is no more. She added that she is concerned about her late co-star’s son, who is just one year old.

Speaking to a leading daily, Paridhi 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.”

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.”
