It’s thought that Kaushal went into cardiac arrest and before medical help arrived, he sadly breathed his last. There have been ongoing tributes to the filmmaker on social media.
One of my oldest, closest friends passes by and I can’t even be there at the funeral…can’t even see him okie last time…can’t pay my respects in person…and people think an actors job is all cushy and fun! It’s the most unenviable job in the world at times… @rajkaushal1 RIP??
