Wow, that's so sad. He passed so fast, just on the homepage there are people cursing at him like always, the family should never have hid how serious his condition was like they did from the start. Cancer is no joke. How will I ever watch Chandni again, man with no more Rishi, Vinod, or Sri alive???
