'Raj told Mandira that he was getting a heart attack. Mandira acted swiftly and called Ashish Chaudhary, who rushed to their place. Mandira and Ashish put him in the car but he was losing consciousness. I think they drove off, taking him to the Lilavati hospital if I'm not wrong. But in the next 5-10 minutes they realised that he had no pulse. Before they reached the doctor, it was too late,' he added.
