While Leena’s Seth Ji co-star Worship Khanna shared a still with her from the show and captioned it stating, “It’s sad when the person who gave you memories becomes one. RIP.”
He also told The Times of India, “The actress was suffering from kidney ailment for the past one and half years. Her mother donated her kidney a while back, but she didn’t survive. In 2015, I had the opportunity to work with Leena Ji. She played my mother on-screen in Seth Ji. I was playing the role of Ganesh Rao, a Maharashtrian. I would call her Maeri instead of Maa. We shared a great bond. Being a bachelor staying alone in Mumbai, she would get food for me and say ‘Betu khaana kha le’. She was a very fun-loving person.”
Abhishek Gautam, the actor and screenwriter penned on his Facebook page, “My good friend and a great artist Leena Acharya, who would always stand up for others, bid goodbye to this world and I lost a good friend. You will always be missed, my friend.”
While Abhishek Bhalerao took to his Twitter page and shared a screenshot of WhatsApp conversation he had with Leena. He wrote, “May your soul Rest in Power. An amazing actress a hustler, one who would apply and go regularly to every audition I would share with her. A beautiful soul.”
