Actor Ayush Anand, who worked with Acharya on Perfect Pati in 2018-2019, said the actor never mentioned her kidney ailment.

Mehraa shared a picture on Instagram from the filming of the ALTBalaji show with Acharya.

"Rest in peace, Ma'm. Last year, this time, we were shooting for Class of 2020. Will miss you (sic)," the actor captioned the post.

Describing Acharya as a jovial person, Anand said she was extremely passionate about her work.

"She never mentioned about this (illness) on set and was always smiling, keeping the environment on set positive," he added.
