Our priority now is to take care of Ashraf’s son, Anurag Kashyap

Bollywood actor Asraful Haque passed away in Mumbai too early leaving behind his nine years old son on Tuesday. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who was closely associated with the ‘Fukrey’ actor said that his priority is now to take care of his son.

"He was one of my closest friends and we knew each other since our struggling days. From my TV show to short-films to features, I worked with him quite often as he was a terrific actor. I was aware of his illness and we knew that his health was fast deteriorating. We were all there for him and it's truly tragic that he had to depart so soon. Our priority now is to take care of his 9-yearold son", Kashyap said.

Anurag said that he was aware of his illness. The ace filmmaker who directed Ashraf in his critically-acclaimed ‘Black Friday’ is highly moved with the sudden death of the talented actor.

His ‘Fukrey’ co-star Pulkit Samrat added, "It's tragic. His work has always been worth learning from. May God bless his soul."

Richa Chadda was quoted in the report, "The industry has lost him too soon. I wasn't aware that he was unwell. To me, he will always be Smakiya, the guy who selflessly helped every Fukra." 

Graduated from National School of Drama, Ashraf was suffering from Myelodysplastic Syndrome for the last two years. Hails from Goalpara, Assam, he worked in movies like‘Company’, ‘Jungle’, ‘Ravan’, ‘Deewar’, ‘Black Friday’.
