Actor Shrivallabh Vyas, who starred in films like Lagaan and Sankat City, passed away in Jaipur on Sunday morning.
Reportedly, in 2008, the actor had suddenly collapsed in his hotel room and since then kept very unwell. He stopped working in films thereafter.
Shrivallabh’s popular films include the likes of Sarfarosh, Abhay, Aan: Men at
Work, Shool, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero and Sankat City. He
also did a few theatre plays among which Virasat (1985) gained him recognition.
