Actor Leena Acharya, best known for her role in Hichki and Class of 2020, dies of kidney failure in Delhi on Saturday. Her Seth Ji co-star Worship Khanna 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. I knew she had health issues in 2015. She was surviving on one kidney and working. She had suffered many health ailments in between and in past four months her health had deteriorated a lot. She was an experienced actor and I will remember her forever.” Also Read - Teachers' Day 2020: Top Bollywood Movies That Celebrate The Essence of Teachers-Students Bonding
