The sad news was shared by her son, Abhinay Deo, who revealed that Seema Deo had been battling Alzheimer’s disease.
Abhinav Deo’s Message
“She passed away at 8.30-9 am at her residence in Bandra due to old age. She had been withdrawn completely, and eventually it is just old age. Alzheimer’s is such a thing that you stop figuring out how to function. She had dementia leading up to Alzheimer’s and she was suffering from it for over three years. “There’s no specific reason (for her death). Due to Alzheimer’s and dementia, the person forgets how to walk. The muscle memory starts coming down and one by one, the organs start shutting down,” Abhinay Deo conveyed message
