We are very sad to inform loss of our senior actor Kavi Kumar Azaad. He was playing the character of Dr Hathi in TMKOC. We lost him to a massive cardiac arrest today morning.
"He was an amazing actor and a very positive person. He truly Loved the show and always came for the shoot even if he was not feeling well. He called today morning that he is not well and will not be able to come for shoot. And later we got the news that he passed away. We are all too numb to say anything," says Asit Kumarr Modi, the show’s producer.
The actor was unwell for three days and was rushed to Wokhardt Hospital at Mira Road when he complained of uneasiness. He was declared dead on arrival.
