Veteran and legendary actress Durdana Butt known for her roles in popular productions such as Silsilay, Tanahaiyaan and Intezaar breathed her last in Karachi. She had been on the ventilator for eight days after contracting Covid. Durdana Butt was in her 80s.
Actor and RJ Khalid Malik shared the tragic news on his Instagram account. “Her family told me she was admitted because she had Covid,” Khalid said, adding that she was on the ventilator for about eight days. “Till the end, the doctors said she’s a fighter but when you are called [by your Creator] — and she understood that — she let go, she stopped fighting.”
Journalist and public relations specialist Tehmina Khalid also confirmed Durdana Butt’s death and said though she had Covid, she also suffered from cancer for the past few years. She was in poor health before she got Covid as well, she said.
