While at the end of her performance she suddenly collapsed. She was rushed into the nearby Gore Hospital were the Doctor declared her dead. Due to increase in blood sugar the symptoms of heart attack weren’t recognised. Ashwini was merely 44 years old & was married & mother to a child.
Ashwini has been an integral part of all three mediums of Marathi entertainment. Apart from acting Ashwini was a classical dancer. She breathed her last while performing classical dance in the event titled ‘Natyatrividhi’. When ashwini collapsed on stage at the end of her dance the audience thought that too was part of the act but unfortunately it wasn’t.
