Experienced Marathi actor-director Ravindra Mahajani, known in the industry for his talent, was found dead in a rented apartment in the Talgaon Dabha area near Pune.
The police informed us of some details of a tragic incident on Saturday. They disclosed that a melancholy Friday evening saw the discovery of the dead body of renowned actor Ravindra Mahajani, 77. It is really upsetting to consider that he might have passed away over three days before his body was eventually discovered. Our condolences are extended to his family at this trying time.
The neighbors of that apartment, where Mrs. Mahajan was residing alone, called us. They told us that her home was emitting a repulsive odor. She was found dead inside the apartment after we arrived and busted down the door. A senior official from the Talegaon Dabhade Police Station made this statement.
It is believed that she passed dead three days ago, he stated. The policeman noted that Mrs. Mahajan had lived in Talegaon Dabhade for the previous eight months despite owning a home in Mumbai.
Police said that his body has been sent to the hospital for postmortem. Ravindra Mahajani acted in several Marathi films from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s.
As an actor, Ravi Mahajan had made notable appearances in films like “Zunj,” “Devta,” and “Devghar.” His son, Gashmeer Mahajani, is also an actor and works in Marathi cinema./
