Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Divya Bhatnagar who was on a ventilator after her COVID-19 diagnosis passed away earlier today. The actress was suffering from COVID-19 induced pneumonia and was put on a ventilator last week after her condition worsened during the treatment.
Divya was hospitalised on November 26 and post her diagnosis, the actress had also shared a picture of her with an oxygen mask on her Instagram story and wrote, “Hi my Instagram family. Pray for my speedy recovery. I love you all.” However, not too long after that, her brother had talked about her deteriorating condition and she was also shifted to a different hospital so as to give her the best treatment possible.
Divya was just 34 and the news of her demise comes as a major shocker. Her friends from the industry are heartbroken and have been writing emotional tributes to the actress. Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee took to Instagram earlier today to bid a heartfelt farewell to one of her closest friends in the industry. She posted a picture of her with Divya and wrote “Jab koi kisi k saath nahi hota tha toh bas tu hi hoti thi...Divu tu hi toh meri apni thi jisse main daant sakti thi,ruth sakti thi,dil ki baat keh sakti thi..I know life was tooo hard on you."
Devoleena further added, "The pain is intorelable...but i know today you must be in a better place and free from all the sorrows, pains, sadness, cheats, lies… I will miss you divu and tu bhi jaant i thi i loved you and cared for you...Badi tu thi par bacchi bhi tu hi thi...God bless your soul.Jahan bhi hai tu abhi bas khush reh.You will be missed & remembered.I love you @divyabhatnagarofficial.Too soon to be gone my friend...
