Actor Ravi Baswani passes away

Talented actor and comedian Ravi Baswani who was known for his roles in films like ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’ and ‘Chashme Buddoor’ breathed his last following a massive heart attack in Shimla. He was 64. He will always be remembered for his comic timings.  

Filmmaker Sai Paranjpe who directed actor Ravi Baswani expressed his shock with the departure of the actor. "I am shocked... he was immensely talented and multifaceted personality. His comic timing was perfect. He was a bit introvert," Paranjpe said here. “Ravi did not get justice even though his talent was immense," she said.

In the film industry, Baswani was very close to Naseeruddin Shah. He was also part of Naseer’s directional debut ‘Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota’. He was also seen in films like ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’, ‘Pyar Tune Kya Kiya’ etc.

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted: "Sad to hear the demise of actor Ravi Baswani. The unforgettable performance in (Jaane bhi do yaaron, Chasme Baddoor), may his soul RIP."

"Just got to know that Ravi Baswani passed away. How sad and terrible. Wonderful man. A gypsy by heart. Always happy and helpful. RIP," actor Anupam Kher said.

His contribution to the Hindi film industry is immense.

May his soul rest in peace!
