Filmmaker B. R. Ishara passes away -news. This month seems to be a month of heavenly departures in Bollywood
This month seems to be a month of heavenly departures in Bollywood. First, it was the ever green Rajesh Khanna, and now its director-screenplay writer B.R. Ishara, who passed today morning, as he was suffering from tuberculosis and was undergoing treatment at Criti Care Hospital, Mumbai. Readers may recall that he had suffered a major paralytic attack during a Directors' Association meeting last year.
The late Ishara launched Parveen Babi and cricketer Salim Durrani in his film Charitra. Not just that, he is also known to be the man who gave breaks to today's heavyweights like Danny Denzongpa, Reena Roy, Shatrughan Sinha, Raj Kiran, Raza Murad… to name a few. He is survived by his former actress wife Rehana Sultan.
Amitabh Bachchan, who had worked with him in Ek Nazar, tweeted, "The well known writer director BR Ishara passed away early this morning. Brought in fresh style subject for films. Did "Ek Nazar"'.
Bollywood Hungama prays for the departed man's soul to rest in eternal peace.
