Mumbai: Actor Rajesh Vivek, who was part of Bollywood for more than two decades, died following a heart attack in Hyderabad on Thursday, a close friend said. He was 66.

“I knew Rajesh for more than 40 years. It’s extremely sad and a huge loss to the industry,” his friend Vishnu Sharma told IANS.

Rajesh, known for his role of the astrologer Guran in Aamir Khan-starrer “Lagaan”, and as the postman in Shah Rukh Khan’s “Swades”, was shooting in Hyderabad for a southern film where he had a massive heart attack.

“He passed away today (Thursday) around 3 o’clock in the afternoon,” Vishnu Sharma said.

His last rites will be performed in Mumbai on Friday.
