Younger folks remember him as Shah Rukh Khan’s Aide in Baadshah. Others know him as Sudhir. Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria alias Bhaggu as fondly remembered passed away after battling a long lung illness. The actor, who was seen in films like Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Satte Pe Satta and Baadshah among the notable ones, was mostly seen playing antagonist in the films of 70s and 80s.
Tracing his family down, many reports suggested that Sudhir was the younger brother of filmmaker Milan Luthria’s father. The actor was also writer Ashok Banker’s step father but had become quite a recluse due to his ailment, losing touch with almost everyone he knew.
Close friends and immediate family have not passed on the information of his death to the media because Sudhir would have liked things to be silent. The actor left behind a bungalow in Andheri and was not married at the time of his death. Koimoi passes our condolences to his family and prays that his soul rests in peace.
