Bollywood actor Rahul Vohra died due to COVID-19 just after hours of his plea for better treatment. He was 35 years old. The news of Vohra’s death comes just a day after he posted on his Facebook page saying ‘he could have been saved if he had received proper treatment, and he will be born again soon.’
On Saturday, Rahul Vohra shared a heart-breaking post on Facebook from hospital. “Mujhe bhi treatment achha mil jaata to main bhi bach jaata, he wrote, adding details of which hospital he was in and also he said “Jald janam lunga aur achha kaam karunga, ab himmat haar chuka hu.” He tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi in his post.
