Many from the film industry were affected by the virus
While fortunately Seshadri is fine, many from the entertainment industry have tragically died in the deadly COVID-19 second wave in India. Producer Ramu, filmmaker KV Anand, director Naveen, composer Shravan Rathore, editor Waman Bhonsle are among those who lost the battle to COVID-19. Meanwhile, Bhumi Pednekar, Kartik Aaryan, Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Vicky Kaushal, and Ranbir Kapoor tested positive but then recovered successfully.
Seshadri was among the reigning Bollywood stars of the '80s
Seshadri made her Bollywood debut in 1983 with the film Painter Babu. She became a household name after featuring in the 1983 movie Hero opposite Jackie Shroff. Seshadri also starred in many blockbuster movies like Meri Jung, Ghayal, Ghatak, Damini, and others. The acting icon reportedly runs a dance school in Texas and teaches Bharatanatyam, Kathak, and Odissi.
Open to making a comeback once her kids are settled
She kept her distance from the film industry after tying the knot with investment banker Harish Mysore in 1995. The couple has a son and a daughter. She only posts on Instagram to keep her fans up-to-date about her life. In an interview with TV9, the veteran actress said she is open to making a comeback once her kids are settled.
Other celebrities who became victims of death hoax
Not just her, many actors fell prey to rumors of their death. There was once a speculation about Amitabh Bachchan succumbing to an accident in the US. Even Ayushmann Khurrana became a victim of a similar hoax, which claimed that he died in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland. Dilip Kumar, Katrina Kaif, and Nick Jonas also had to face similar hoaxes.
