Veteran actor Vinay Apte passes away

Vinay Apte, the man who was one of the driving forces of the entertainment industry, breathed his last on Saturday evening at Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Andheri. He was 62 years old. He was reportedly suffering from breathing problems. Even though he was majorly known for his Marathi films, he had contributed almost equally in Bollywood as well. Films like Chandni Bar, Ek Chalis Ki Last Local, Rajneeti etc… stand testimony to the same.


Reports have it that his breathing problems aggravated after his return from Shimla, where he had gone for a Hindi film shoot in September. Talking about him, his wife Vayjanti said that he was recuperating at home post his discharge from hospital last month. But when he complained of breathlessness on Friday night, they got him admitted in the hospital immediately. After that, in the morning hours, his blood pressure dipped and by evening 6pm, he breathed his last.


(Late) Apte is survived by his wife and son Vihaan.


Bollywood Hungama offers its heartfelt condolences to the Apte family.
