Famous TV actor Jagesh Mukati who has worked in serials Amita ka Amit and Shree Ganesh passed away at 47. His friend Sanjay Goradia confirmed the news to Indian Express telling the actor passed away on Wednesday at 3 PM.
“Jagesh was hospitalised on Friday last week, but he never told anyone about it because he didn’t want anybody to be stressed, especially because there is so much worry about COVID-19 these days. Jagesh had asthma and obesity-related health issues for many years. He was working out and dieting, but then the lockdown began, and he couldn’t continue his work-out. So, his asthma started getting worse. Last week, when he got breathless, he was taken to CritiCare hospital in Juhu, Mumbai. His oxygen level was low. He was tested for COVID-19 because that’s the protocol. His tests results came negative.”
The actor further said:
“Yesterday, suddenly he got an asthma attack and was kept on a ventilator. Later in the day, he passed away. He was only 47 years old.”
Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Star Ambika Ranjankar mourned for the death of the actor in a post.
He was also seen with Parineeti Chopra in the movie ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’.
