Tamil actor Meena Sagar’s husband Vidyasagar passed away on Monday leaving her devastated. As soon as the news of his death came to light, rumours and speculations about the cause of his death started doing the rounds in the media and over the internet. On Friday, in an Instagram post, Meena requested her fans and media to stop spreading these rumours and urged them to give her and her family the much needed privacy.
In the caption of the post, Meena shared a folded hands emoji, “I am deeply saddened by the loss of my loving husband Vidyasagar. I sincerely request all media to respect our privacy and sympathise this situation. Please stop further broadcast of any false information on this matter. During these difficult times, I want to express my gratitude to all those good hearts who helped and stood with our family. I would like to thank all the Medical Team who tried their best, our Chief Minister, Health Minister, Radhakrishnan IAS, Colleagues, Friends, Family, Media & My loving fans for sending love and prayers."
Earlier, Meena’s close friend, actor Khushbu Sundar had also requested people to not spread false information about her personal loss. She had said, “I very humbly request the media to be little responsible. Meena's husband had Covid 3 months back. Covid worsened his lung condition. Pls do not send out a wrong message & create any kind of fear or cause flutter by saying we lost Sagar to Covid. Yes we need to be cautious, but pls.”
Vidyasagar and Meena tied the knot in 2009. Sagar was a Bangalore-based businessman. They have a daughter named Nainika Sagar. Meena started her Tamil film career as a child artiste in the 90s and early 2000s and became extremely popular.
