Usha Nadkarni, who played his wife in Pavitra Rishta confirmed the tragic news by stating,
“Yes, I got the news today. He was not keeping well since quite some time. When we shot for the last episode of Pavitra Rishta, I enquired about him and got to know that he was unwell. Since then I was in constant touch with him and his family. But I got busy lately due to the outdoor shoots and today I got this news that he is no more.”
May his soul rest in peace!
