According to media reports, Waman passed away on Monday morning due to age related issues at the age of 87. While his demise came as a shock to many, Madhur Bhandarkar took to social media to mourn Waman’s death.

On the other hand, Vikram Bhatt, during his conversation with BT, recalled his time working with Waman. He said, “He is the first genius that I came across in the film industry. He was so good when it came to editing. He was my friend, philosopher and guide. He’s taught me so much. I was a Chief Assistant on Agneepath (1990) when I first met him. He took me under his wings. He taught me the finer points of film editing. That was the time when the process used to be different as there were no computers.”
