Last two days have been a nightmare for the Indian film industry as the country lost two of its biggest gems, Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor. While the industry is still struggling with the horrifying events, another devastating news came in as the CEO of the Producers Guild of India, Kulmeet Makkar, lost his life on Friday.

Kulmeet Makkar was in Dharmshala, Himachal Pradesh, where he had a massive and fatal heart attack. The Producers Guild of India issued a statement to mourn his death and remembered him for his contribution to the growth of the Indian film and television industry.

“Today we lost our pillar of strength. Kulmeet is irreplaceable.

Today we have lost someone who has played an integral role – always unassumingly and behind the scenes to nurture and grow the Indian film and television industry. Our dearest Kulmeet, you will always be missed. Your legacy will live on,” the statement read.

Renowned filmmaker Karan Johar took to his social media handle to condole his demise and paid his tribute. “Kulmeet you were such an incredible pillar to all of us at the Producers Guild of India….relentlessly working for the industry and towards its enhancement and advancement… you left us too soon…We will miss you and always Remember you fondly…. Rest in peace my friend…” Karan Johar tweeted.
