He had been battling a lung ailment for a long time. Heart goes out to Meena and her young daughter. Life is brutal. At the loss of words to express grief. Deepest condolences to the family (sic),” she posted.
In another tweet, she clarified that Sagar did not die of Covid. “I very humbly request the media to take little responsibility. Meena’s husband had Covid 3 months ago. Covid worsened his lung condition. Please don’t send the wrong message or create any kind of fear or flutter by saying we lost Sagar to Covid. Yes, we have to be careful, but please,” she said.
Vidyasagar was a businessman from Bengaluru. In 2009 he married Meena and they have a daughter named Nainika.
Meena, who started her career as a children’s artist, became one of the most sought-after actors in the 90s and early 2000s.
