Choti Sarrdaarni actor Amal Sehrawat has opened up about losing his father to Covid-19 last month. He said that he saw his father once for a brief period before he succumbed to cardiac arrest.

"My father didn't have any symptoms, we took him to the hospital for some other problem. But when they tested him for COVID-19, the reports came out positive. After that, I saw him once for a brief period. He was in the ICU all this while and finally succumbed to cardiac arrest last month. It's a void that can never be filled, but he has left us with a lot of good memories and that's helping us to sail through this tough time," Amal Sherawat told TOI about his father's battle with Covid-19.

Amal lauded his mother's fight with Covid-19 and how he always been the Iron Lady of the house. "This is an extremely unpredictable virus, my father couldn't survive whereas my mother, despite being diabetic, got through it. She's fine now, physically as well as mentally. My father always called her the Iron Lady of our house and he was right," he said.

The actor also took to Instagram to apologise to his fans for not being in touch with them all this while and also thanked the media for being sensitive and considerate during these trying times.
