Zarina Wahab Tests Negative For Covid, Laments Death Of Colleague Ashalata

Zarina Wahab  dismisses  reports  of  having contracted the Covid 19.  “I had travelled to  Hyderabad  to meet my sister.When I was on the way  to the airport to catch my  flight back to Mumbai I got completely drenched. When I reached Mumbai I  was sneezing and feeling cold. So I got myself  immediately  admitted into hospital. I didn’t want  anyone at home to be  infected, in case I  had the Covid. Luckily I tested negative ,and  am  back home safe and sound with my family,” says Zarina who’s  in her 60s.

Regrettably Zarina lost a dear co-star Ashalata Wabgaonkar  to Covid.

“I’ve done  many  serials  with Ashalataji . She was  such a lovely human being , and a  joy to work with. She  had a lovely sing-song speaking voice. We  affectionately called her a   tota(parrot) . I am so  grieved to know she’s no more,” says Zarinaji.

Ashalata was  much older than  Zarina.  “In fact Ashalataji played  my mother in some serials. She had  amazing enthusiasm  for her work. She did theatre, television and cinema with equal  passion.”
