Bollywood actor Inder Kumar passed away early Friday morning. He was 43.

Inder Kumar suffered a heart attack at his residence in Andheri’s Four Bungalows at around 2am today.

“He passed away at 2am on Friday morning after suffering a cardiac arrest,” said Inder Kumar’s former father-in-law Raju Karia.

Inder Kumar, who made his Bollywood debut with 1996 film Masoom, worked in over 20 films in a career spanning nearly twenty years. He was best known for playing supporting roles in Bollywood films such as Tirchhi Topiwale (1998), Kahi Pyar Na Ho Jaaye (2000), Paying Guest (2009) and Wanted (2009). Inder, last seen in the 2011 film Yeh Dooriyan, was currently shooting for his next film Phati Padi Hai Yaar.

Inder also briefly played Mihir Virani in the popular TV show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. The actor was quite close to Salman Khan’s family as the two actors have worked together in several projects.

Inder Kumar also had a controversial past. In 2014, the actor was accused and arrested in a rape case. Inder had maintained that he did not rape the woman, but was in a consensual relationship. Later that year in June, Inder Kumar was granted bail.

He is survived by his wife Pallavi Saraf and daughter Khushi.

The cremation will be held today evening at Yaari Road Shamshaan Bhoomi.

Meanwhile, Bollywood and TV celebrities took to Twitter to pay tribute to Inder Kumar.

While Raveena, who shared screen space with Inder in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1996), said: “Omg shocking news. Worked with him in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi. Too young to go. May his soul rest in peace. God give strength to his family,” Abhishek Bachchan tweeted, “God! Just read of the passing of Inder Kumar. Very sad. He was such a nice guy and actor. Always was very kind to me. Rest in peace.”

    RIP Inder. Sad to hear about him. I had met him in 1995 on the sets of Masoom, a song being shot in the outskirts of Chennai. He was one of the most handsome and versatile actor. Unfortunately succumbed to the vagaries of time and bad people. May god punish all those who contributed towards spoiling his career and cutting his life short. Still he lived smiling and struggling. Great personality and we have got many things to learn from him.

          May his soul rip!but may God punish that woman who is behind the ruin of his life! I hate women who play around with some one's life and then blame the same person who is going thru pain, and thank you to our Indian society, who never cares for the Human value, rather pays attention to fake People and Rumours!
