Mandira Bedi’s husband Raj Kaushal passed away at 4:30 am on Wednesday morning after he suffered a cardiac arrest. A filmmaker by profession, Raj Kaushal was 49 years old. Jitu Savlani, a close friend of the family, when contacted, confirmed to ETimes, “It is true, he suffered a cardiac arrest early in the morning.” Raj Kaushal had directed films like ‘Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi’ and ‘Shaadi Ka Laddoo’. He had also called the shots for commercials.
On Sunday, Mandira and Raj Kaushal had hosted a get-together which was attended by their close friends Neha Dhupia, Angad Bedi, Sagarika Ghatge, cricketer Zaheer Khan, Ashish Chaudhary and his wife. Ashish Chaudhary was one of the first to reach Mandira Bedi’s residence after the unfortunate news was reported.
Filmmaker Onir fondly remembered Raj Kaushal and shared on Twitter, “Gone too soon. We lost Film maker and Producer @rajkaushal1 this morning. Very Sad. He was one of the producers of my first film #MyBrotherNikhil. One of those few who believed in our vision and supported us. Prayers for his soul.”
