Asif Basra Death

Asif Basra, who starred in web series Paatal Lok and film Kai Po Che, has died at 53, reported Indian Express. He was found dead in a private complex in Dharamshala.

“Asif committed suicide today morning. The body has gone for post-mortem. It will be done tomorrow. There is no suicide note,” Vimukt Ranjan, SP Dharamshala, said in an interview to indianexpress.com.

Hostages Season 2, director Sachin Krishn expressed shock over the news. “I am stunned by the news. I don’t know the full facts. He was such a jovial person on sets. In fact, we used to envy his life because he would stay in the hills and come to Mumbai only to shoot. He was not only a fine actor but more importantly, a beautiful person. It feels like a personal loss,” he told indianexpress.com.

Sachin mentioned how he had tried contacting Asif several times since September after the show went live, but the late actor never responded. “I got in touch with every actor after Hostages season two, so I was trying to get in touch with him too. I would ask my associates to reach out to him, but there would be no response. I would think, ‘What’s wrong with him?’ and later thought maybe I offended him. In this industry, you feel maybe the actor wasn’t happy the way the graph of his character was shown. But now, I am shocked.”

Several celebrities took to social media to mourn the demise of Asif Basra.

Manoj Bajpayee tweeted, “What? This is too shocking!! Shot with him just before Lockdown!!! Oh My God!!!”
