Director of hit television shows ‘Gangaa’ and ‘Veera’, Waseem Sabir has passed away.

Sabir reportedly knocked his head when he fell and was rushed to hospital on Sunday. However, his injuries to the brain were said to be serious and he died the following day.

Deccan Chronicle reports that Sabir had injured himself on the sets of show ‘Tamanna’ back in March. A source at the time said, “During the rehearsals, the leading lady, Anuja was teaching her neighbour’s children to play cricket in the sequence. Our director was busy analysing the shot when Anuja swung the bat missing the ball completely. It accidentally landed on Waseem sir’s elbow, and injured it badly. He had to be rushed to a doctor instantly.”

In September last year, Sabir had handed over the baton over directing ‘Gangaa’ to Yusuf Ansari. He tweeted the following today:
