Maker of Vaastu Shastra, Saurabh Narang, passes away

Saurabh Narang, the man who had directed Sushmita Sen starrer Vaastu Shastra (2004) has passed away. He was battling stomach cancer for last few months and breathed his last today morning. He was in Sri Lanka where he was undergoing treatment.


Barely in his 30s, he started off quite young in the industry when he bagged an opportunity to direct one of the first horror films coming from the house of Ram Gopal Varma – Vaastu Shastra. The film was a moderate success. Narang was looking at making a comeback by directing a new film. As per reports, the film was titled Return Gift and was supposed to star Rajeev Khandelwal.


Many of his friends from the industry were shocked to hear about his demise though they were aware about his battle for cancer. Filmmakers like Sudhir Mishra, Suparn Verma, Shivajee Chandrabhushan and Sachin Khot were especially fond of him.


Acknowledged as being one of the nicest young filmmakers in the industry, his demise is being mourned. His body would be brought to Delhi and subsequently the last rites would be held.
