She told The Business Standard, "I got acquainted with Aly Zaker while doing 'Baki Itihas' play. Friendship and family ties formed very quickly between us."

"We were supposed to read a play together, but it was not possible because he was ill. We were waiting for his recovery. That never happened again, he passed away," she added.
