In some unfortunate news yesterday, we informed you about ad filmmaker and Mandira Bedi‘s husband, Raj Kaushal‘s, sudden passing following a heart attack. Raj is survived by his wife Mandira, his ten-year-old son Vir and daughter Tara, whom they adopted only last year.

Mourning his loss, his very good friend and actor Ashish Chowdhry penned a heartfelt note. Taking to his social media, he shared some lovely pictures with Raj taken over the many years they’ve known each other and called him his ‘guiding light’. He shares that after this sister Monica, who died during the 26/11 attacks in Bombay, Raj was his biggest support.

He wrote:

My guiding light, my happy quotient, my mollycoddler, is gone. My big brother who supported me fiercely like my sister Monica who I also lost, gone. Yet, he taught me well. To survive any storm. So I’ll do the same today. For him.Until then bro. Until we meet again @rajkaushal1.

Take a look at the post:

Apart from Ashish, food friend Arshad Warsi, Vicky Kaushal, Neha Dhupia, Madhavan and others also shared their deepest condolences to the family.

This sure is heartbreaking for us and definitely for his loved ones. May Raj’s soul rest in peace.
