Paridhi shared that she is in a state of shock to know that Manisha has died. She also said that she is concerned about the one-year-old son of Manisha Yadav.
“I wasn’t in constant touch with her after our show went off air. But we have a WhatsApp group which is named Mughals and all the actresses who were begums in the show are a part of that group. So that’s how we stay in touch and if anything important is to be shared about anyone’s life, we do that on the group. I got to know about this yesterday on the group and I was shocked,” she shared while speaking to a leading news publication.
Manisha used to share the pictures and videos of her toddler (Son) on social media quite frequently. In July this year, she shared a couple of posts on her Twitter handle to share pictures of the celebration on the occasion of her son’s first birthday.
