Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s body double Sagar Pandey recently passed away after suffering a heart attack. Prashant Walde, the famous body double of Shah Rukh Khan, on Friday confirmed the news of his Pandey’s death to Bollywood Hungama.
Who was Sagar Pandey, Salman Khan’s body double who passed away due to heart attack?
Sagar Pandey was a body double for the actor in atleast 50 films including Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He had closely worked with Salman on Kuch Kuch Hota Hai which marked his first film with the superstar in 1998. He did Dabangg, Tubelight, Dabangg 2 and Dabangg 3 and Bajrangi Bhaijaan among other projects. He had four brothers and had moved to Mumbai from Uttar Pradesh in hopes of becoming an actor. When that didn’t work out, he became a body double.
Prashant Walde said, “Sagar was working in the gym when he suddenly collapsed. He was immediately taken to Hindu Hruday Samrat Balasaheb Thackerey Trauma Care Municipal Hospital at Jogeshwari East, Mumbai. That’s where he was declared dead. I am quite shocked. He was perfectly fit and healthy. He was too young to pass away. His age must have been around 45-50 years.”
On Friday, Salman Khan mourned the loss of his body double and even paid tribute to him. Khan shared a throwback picture and wrote, “RIP”. Alongside the picture, Salman wrote a thank you note saying, “Dil se shukar adda kar raha hoon for being there with me. May your soul rest in peace brother Sagar. Thank u #RIP #SagarPandey.”
