Mahesh Anand was usually seen as the main henchman of the villains in several films but was facing huge financial constraints for many years. He was virtually jobless and was living alone for many years.
The actor is suspected to have died at least two days ago, and the decomposed body has been sent for autopsy to ascertain the time and cause of death.
The 57-year-old actor has worked in several movies alongside big names in Bollywood. He starred with top actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Sanjay Dutt. He was seen last in Govinda’s ‘Rangeela Raja’.The film was released in January this year.
While the reason behind the actor’s death is unclear, doctors from the hospital said the body was brought from his residence in a decomposed condition.
Saddened to hear of Mahesh Anand’s demise. The man was a victim of the roller coaster ride that is Bollywood. RIP.
