Worship Khanna, who played Leena’s son in Seth Ji told an online portal, “The actress was suffering from kidney ailment for 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.”

Leena’s last Instagram post came on November 3 when she had shared a picture of herself in a pink saree. The post had no caption.
