Zarina said she was unaware about Rita’s health issues. Zarina last met Rita at a FTII function. “Rita looked distinctly weak but did not discuss her health. It is extremely shocking and sad that my friend is no more. My problem is compounded by the fact that since early morning, I am tied at SJ studio (Saki Naka) for a film shoot and cannot go to see her even now. I will miss her a lot,” Zarina added.
