A senior journalist and father of popular actor-comedian Mallika Dua, Vinod Dua left for heavenly abode today. The journalist was not keeping well for quite some time after he got Covid. Vinod was admitted to the ICU of Apollo Hospital in Delhi last week.
“Our irreverent, fearless and extraordinary father, Vinod Dua has passed away,” Mallika Dua shared on her Instagram story. The comic actor also shared that the cremation would be held at the Lodhi crematorium, Delhi on December 5, 2021.
Late Vinod Dua was admitted to the hospital with his wife radiologist Padmavati Dua after they both were diagnosed with Covid during the second wave. His wife died in June and Vinod has been struggling with his health since that time.
Vinod has two daughters – the comic-actor Mallika Dua and Bakul Dua, a clinical psychologist.
