Actor Abhay Deol’s father and veteran superstar Dharmendra’s younger brother Ajit Singh Deol passed away yesterday evening in Mumbai.
Ajit Singh Deol was ailing since the past one month and was reportedly under treatment of gall bladder complications.
“He was unwell for past few months. He was earlier admitted to Breach Candy hospital for a month or so. Later, he was brought to Sunridges hospital in Juhu. He was there for two days. He was not responding to the treatment hence he was brought home. He passed away yesterday at around 6 pm at his residence in Juhu,” said the source.
Son Abhay, brother Dharmendra and nephew Sunny Deol were by Ajit’s bedside when he breathed his last.
The actor-director had been a part of many Punjabi films besides being known for Hindi movies like “Khhotte Sikkay” (1974), “Meharbaani” (1982) and “Barsaat” (1995).
The funeral took place at Pawan Hans, Juhu at nine in the morning today.
