We all are shocked by the news of the sudden demise of Kavi Kumar Azad, best known as Dr Haathi from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma.
On Monday afternoon he suffered from major cardiac arrest and then he was declared dead in Wockhardt Hospital in Mira Road, Mumbai.
The last rites of Kavi Kumar Azad will take place on Tuesday afternoon that is today itself.
On Monday, the actor was not well and was admitted in the hospital. The doctors declared him dead as soon as he arrived in the hospital.
Asit Kumar Modi, the producer of the show expressed his grief over the news, “We are very sad to inform loss of our senior actor Kavi Kumar Azaad. He was playing the character of Dr Hathi in Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma. We lost him to a massive cardiac arrest today morning. He was an amazing actor and a very positive person. He truly Loved the show and always came for the shoot even if he was not feeling well. He called today morning that he is not well and will not be able to come for shoot. And later we got the news that he passed away. We are all too numb to say anything.”
It was also a news that despite being unwell Kavi reported on sets everyday and it was only on Monday that he took a leave as he was too unwell to report to work.
Well, as much as the co-stars, we as an audience also are taken aback with the sad news.
