In a sad demise, actor Shri Vallabh Vyas, popularly known for his role in Aamir Khan’s Lagaan, died at the age of 60 in Jaipur on Sunday. The actor breathed his last at 9.30 am and the last rites took place in the evening.
Vallabh Vyas went through many ups and down in past few years. It can be called the worst phase of his life. It all started in 2008 when he suffered a brain stroke followed by a paralytic attack while shooting for a film in Gujarat.
As per reports, in the middle of the night, he fell in the toilet and was found the next morning in a pool of blood. He was immediately taken to the hospital and operated but unfortunately, he was paralysed since then. His family couldn’t afford his treatment and so, they shifted him from Mumbai to Jaisalmer and later Jaipur for treatment.
Vyas’s co-actors Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpayee and Aamir Khan had come forward to help his family with treatment. He is survived by his wife, Shobha Vyas and two daughters.
Shri Vallabh Vyas’ memorable work includes the role of Ishwar in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan (2001) and Jinaah in Sardar (1993). Some of his other noted films included Sarfarosh (1999), Shool (1999) and Dil Bole Hadippa (2009) among others.
