Renowned Gujarati theatre actor, director and producer Arvind Joshi is no more. The veteran actor was 3 Idiots actor Sharman Joshi and Manasi Roy's father. Manasi is married to Television actor Rohit Roy. Reportedly, Arvind Joshi breathed his last on January 29 at Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai. The news was shared by Komal Nahta's Film Information. Arvind Joshi was a very known face in theatre and he also appeared in a few films like Sholay and Ittefaq, and Apmaan Ki Aag.
The cause of his death has not been revealed yet. Sharma Joshi or any other member close to Arvind Joshi is yet to comment on the same. Sharman Joshi has been a part of the film industry for more than two decades. It was recently that the actor spoke about feeling like an outsider and being sorry for himself.
To news agency IANS, he had shared, "I still feel like an outsider. I understand that there is certain monogamy of certain generations of families that have been in business, and tomorrow my children would enjoy the fruit of my presence in Hindi cinema. I have established relationships with people, and they will get the advantage. It is about the time spent in the business and familiarity. There have been experiences and adventures that people share." He added, ""I understand that but I do feel a little sorry for me sometimes, that I was not connected to a film industry family. I was born into a theatre family, though, so I have plenty of experience on that front." Sharman has appeared in many hit films like Golmaal, Rang De Basanti, Mission Mangal, Life In A Metro and more.
May Arvind Joshi's soul rest in peace.
