Deven Verma, who is known for some epic comic roles in Bollywood, passed away in his Pune house on Tuesday at 2am. The cause of death has been reported to be a heart attack and kidney failure. The 78 year old actor was known for his roles in Golmaal, Chor Ke Ghar Chor, Angoor, Dil Toh Paagal Hai and Andaz Apna Apna, among others.
Apart from acting, Verma also produced and directed a few films. He won Filmfare awards for Chori Mera Naam, Chor Ke Ghar Chor and Angoor. Deven’s contribution to Bollywood has been immense and will never be forgotten.
Here’s one of my favourite scenes of him:
May you rest in peace, Sir.
