Mumbai, August 4
Veteran actor Mithilesh Chaturvedi, best known for starring in films such as ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Ready’, died on Thursday morning due to cardiac arrest, a family member said.
The 67-year-old actor suffered cardiac arrest 10 days ago and was admitted to Kokilaben Dhiruben Ambani hospital in suburban Mumbai.
“He was admitted to the hospital for eight to 10 days as he suffered cardiac arrest. He had breathing issues and was undergoing treatment. He passed away on Thursday at 4am due to cardiac arrest,” his son-in-law Ashish Chaturvedi told PTI.
The character artiste had delivered memorable performances in Hindi films such as ‘Taal’, ‘Fiza’, ‘Asoka’, ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, ‘Krrish’, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and web series ‘Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story’.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta was one of the firsts from the film industry to pay tribute to the actor.

The official Twitter handle of Cine & TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) posted, "CINTAA expresses its condolences on the demise of Mithilesh Chaturvedi."
Chaturvedi's last rites will be held in the evening at a crematorium in Versova.
The actor is survived by wife, two daughters and a son.
