US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Over the past two days, two Bollywood stars have passed away. April 30 reported the death of actor Rishi Kapoor – one of the sons of the famous actor and director Raj Kapoor. He died in India at the age of 68.
And the day before, on April 29, it became known about the death in India of Irfan Khan, known for the films Slumdog Millionaire and Life of Pi, The New Spider-Man, Jurassic World, Inferno and many others. He was 53 years old.
Both actors have been treated for cancer in recent years.
Khan, who has been fighting cancer since 2018, has died in a private clinic in Mumbai.
Rishi Kapoor returned to India last September after being treated for cancer in the United States. In February he was hospitalized twice, after which he lived for about two months.
Member of Parliament, leader of the Indian National Congress party, Rahul Gandhi said that “this is a terrible week for Indian cinema.”
Rishi starred in several dozen films, including films that were shot in collaboration with Soviet directors – in particular, in the film “The Black Prince of Ajub”. He is also known as a director and producer, recallsRIA News .
Also these days it became known that in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Indian film industry decided to completely stop production of films for rental and television until March 31, 2020.
The National Association of Producers also recommended that all Indian film crews currently working on overseas projects return to India within three days.
Obviously, as a result of the forced downtime, Bollywood will suffer significant damage, and one of the “victims” will be the Indian version of the famous Hollywood drama “Forrest Gump”.
