Nishikant Kamat, the man behind some brilliant films like Dombivali Fast, Drishyam, Lai Bhaari, Mumbai Meri Jaan reportedly took his last breath in Hyderabad today. Bollywood has already started mourning, Milap Zaveri gave the latest update about the scenario.
In our conversation with Satyameva Jayate director, Milap Zaveri told, “He is not dead yet. He is on the ventilator. But for all probability, he will pass away today. Just spoke to someone who is with him in the hospital.”
While this still shatters our heart, Milap added about Nishikant Kamat’s condition, “They are gonna shut the ventilator anytime now.”
Even Riteish Deshmukh said the same as Milap Zaveri on his Twitter.
Nishikant kamat is on ventilator support. He is still alive & fighting. Let’s pray for him.

In Indian Express, Actor Jaywant Wadkar said, “I was in touch with producer Ajay Rai, who is a close associate of Nishikant Kamat. Nishikant passed away around 10:30 am today in Hyderabad. The process of bringing his body to Mumbai is currently on.”
2020 has just been cruel to everything and everyone around us. Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Saroj Khan, Wajid Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput and so many other talents that left us leaving a blackhole vacant in the world of cinema.
We all wish all the strength to Nishikant Kamat’s family and may his soul rest in peace. Om shaanti!
