Earlier, Meena’s co-actor and friend Khushbu Sundar slammed a report citing the wrong reason for Vidyasagar’s death. She clarified that he didn’t die due to Covid-19. She explained that Meena’s husband contracted the virus three months ago and it worsened his lung condition. The actress also urged the media to not 'send out the wrong message and create any kind of fear or cause flutter by saying Sagar died due to Covid.'
Vidya Sagar, who was a businessman by profession, was cremated in the presence of his family and friends at the Besant Nagar crematorium in Chennai. He is survived by his wife Meena and daughter Nainika.
