Sooraj was unwell since the past few days and even had a mild fever.
His sister Vineeta told Navbharat Times that the actor frequently travelled from Mumbai to Goa ever since the shoot location of the show was shifted there amidst the surge in COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra.
Urging everyone to pray for Sooraj's speedy recovery, his sister further shared that while shooting for his show, he used to return to his hotel room and never venture out. He used to take good care of his health and diet and despite that, he fell ill.

The actor had a high fever and his health deteriorated following which he was directly admitted to ICU at a hospital in Malad.
