According to a report by Indian Express, Manoj Chansoria, who recently retired on March 31, was a relative of Kartik Aaryan. Their connection was confirmed by a family friend. The tragedy unfolded when Manoj and Anita stopped at a petrol pump in Ghatkopar on May 13th. Around 4:30 pm, a large billboard weighing approximately 250 tonnes collapsed due to the strong winds, striking their red SUV. 

Their son, Yash, residing in the United States, lost contact with them later that evening. Unable to reach his parents by phone, Yash contacted his father's colleagues for help. Yash's concern prompted Manoj's former colleagues to involve the Mumbai Police. Using mobile network data, authorities traced the couple's last location to Ghatkopar near the Eastern Express Highway.  

Sadly, after hours of searching, friends and colleagues found the couple deceased, trapped beneath the debris of the collapsed hoarding. Yash immediately flew back to India upon learning of his parents' disappearance. The final rites were held at a crematorium in Sahar on Thursday.

While news of this personal tragedy emerges, Kartik Aaryan is currently preparing for the release of his upcoming film, Chandu Champion, directed by Kabir Khan. The movie, slated for a June 14 release, is a biographical sports drama based on the life of India's first Paralympic gold medalist, Murlikant Petkar.
