Shrivallabh Vyas, who was seen opposite Aamir Khan in films like Lagaan and Sarfarosh, passed away on Sunday morning in Jaipur.
Shrivallabh Vyas had to take a break from acting in 2008 after he collapsed in his hotel room in Gujarat.
We have seen him in over 60 films and some of the popular films are Sarfarosh, Lagaan, Aan: Men at Work, Shool to name a few.
Television actor Daya Shankar Pandey, who is a close family friend of Vyas, confirmed the news to IndianExpress.com. He said, “Vyas was a great actor and we will miss him immensely. He died on Sunday morning around 9.30 am and his last rites will take place in the evening today. He has two daughters and his wife struggled a lot while taking care of Vyas.”
He further added, “He was a very well-read man and an immensely talented actor, but he didn’t get his dues. But his work has always spoken for him. He was also into singing and had started writing too, but life was cruel to him.”
Vyas was known for his impactful and stunning performances. His characters of Ishwar and Muhammad Ali Jinnah in Lagaan and Sardar respectively garnered a lot of appreciations by the audiences. He is survived by his wife Shobha Vyas and two daughters.
May his soul rest in peace!
