2020 is proving to be a disastrous year for everyone around the world. After Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Manmeet Singh, we now have yet another untimely demise in Bollywood. Salman Khan’s Ready co-star Mohit Baghel has passed away due to Cancer.
He was recently seen in Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra’s Jabariya Jodi. Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa got emotional on Twitter and posted a tweet about the same.
Raaj wrote (in Hindi), “Mohit, my brother what was the hurry to go? I had told you that the entire industry has stopped for you, you get well and then we’d start shooting. You act very well, and that’s why I will wait for you on the sets of our next film, and you would have to come).”
मोहित मेरे भाई इतनी जल्दी क्या थी जाने की?
मैंने तुझसे कहा था देख तेरे लिए सारी इंडस्ट्री रुक गयी है जल्दी से ठीक होके आजा उसके बाद ही सब काम शुरू करेंगे,
तू बहुत अच्छी एक्टिंग करता है,इसलिए अगली फिल्म के सेट पे तेरा इंतज़ार करूँगा…और तुझे आना ही पड़ेगा
