Guwahati: Actor Mandira Bedi’s husband, filmmaker Raj Kaushal, has died.

Filmmaker Onir confirmed the news on social media and wrote, “Gone too soon.

We lost Filmmaker and Producer @rajkaushal1 this morning. Very Sad. He was one of the producers of my first film #MyBrotherNikhil. One of those few who believed in our vision and supported us. Prayers for his soul.”

Actor Rohit Roy also confirmed the news and told  “Raj passed away this morning, around 4.30 am, he had a heart attack. He was at home, by the time the family could get any medical help, Raj had gone.”

Later, Rohit posted an emotional note bidding goodbye to Raj Kaushal. “And just like that, he’s gone, even without saying good bye. Too numb with grief and shock to react. This is not fair, just not fair,” he wrote.

The writer-director-producer helmed three films in his career – Pyaar Mein Kabhie Kabhie, Shaadi Ka Ladoo and Anthony Kaun Hai. He started his career as a copywriter. In films, he started with assisting Mukul Anand, including Subhash Ghai’s Trimurti.

He started his own advertising production company in 1998 and went on to direct over 800 commercials.
