The actor’s grandson Anish Nandlaskar confirmed the news to indianexpress.com.

While expressing his grief, Marathi star Sanjay Narvekar said, "Nandlaskar kaka was a gem of our Marathi entertainment industry. I have never met such a sincere actor in my life. He used to come early morning on set just to memorise his lines of the script. Because of old age, he had a problem memorise the script, so just to avoid re-take, he used to come early. He was a very sweet person. I think there will never be another like Nandlaskar kaka"
