The world of Indian cinema mourns the loss of one of its stalwarts as legendary Bollywood director Rajkumar Kohli breathed his last at the age of 95. The filmmaker, recognized for his prolific contributions to the industry, succumbed to a heart attack on Friday. The untimely demise unfolded in a tragic incident within the confines of his home, marking the end of a cinematic era.

Reports indicate that the veteran director was discovered unconscious after an extended period within the confines of his bathroom. Concerns arose when he failed to emerge from his morning routine, prompting his family to take immediate action. Upon forcibly opening the bathroom door, Kohli's son, Armaan Kohli, found his father in distress. The seasoned director was swiftly transported to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead, attributing the cause to a heart attack.

The unfortunate incident transpired around 8 AM, as Kohli entered the bathroom for a routine shower. However, his prolonged absence raised alarms, leading to the discovery of the dire situation. The film fraternity and fans alike mourn the loss of a creative genius whose imprint on Bollywood is indelible.

Funeral arrangements for Rajkumar Kohli are scheduled for this evening at his residence in Juhu, Mumbai. The final rites will be performed later in the day, as family and friends gather to bid a final farewell to the legendary director. The somber occasion reflects the profound impact Kohli had on the Indian film industry.

Rajkumar Kohli's illustrious career spanned several decades, during which he helmed numerous iconic films. Notable among them are classics such as 'Nagin,' 'Jaani Dushman,' 'Biwi No. 1,' 'Badle Ki Aag,' 'Raj Tilak,' 'Jeene Nahin Doonga,' 'Inteqam,' and 'Bees Saal Baad.' His prowess in storytelling and direction earned him acclaim, with 'Nagin' and 'Jaani Dushman' standing out as particularly significant successes.

In addition to his directorial achievements, Kohli played a pivotal role in shaping the careers of emerging talents. In 1992, he introduced his son, Armaan Kohli, to the Bollywood industry through the film 'Virodhi.' While his son's career may not have reached the heights of his father's, the legacy of the Kohli family in Indian cinema remains undeniable.
