Sanjay Gadhvi, the director of the famous Bollywood movie Dhoom, passed away on Sunday at home. He was 56 years old.

Gadhvi is well-known for two Yash Raj Films smash hits, “Dhoom” (2004) and “Dhoom 2” (2006).

Gadhvi’s daughter claimed that the director was in excellent health.

“He passed away at his home this morning at 9:30 a.m. Although we are unsure of the cause, a heart attack is most likely the culprit. He wasn’t sick; in fact, he was in excellent health, Sanjina said to Indian media.

“Tere Liye” marked Gadhvi’s directorial debut in 2000. He then went on to direct “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai,” his first film with Yash Raj Films, in 2002.

Gadhvi is survived by his wife and another daughter in addition to Sanjini.

In light of the unfortunate passing of director Sanjay Ghadvi, Abiskeih Bachan, Yash Raj Films, and Bipasha Basu sent their condolences to the director’s family.

Abhishek said: “: I took this photo of Sanjay whilst we were filming the climax of Dhoom 2 in South Africa. We made 2 films together - Dhoom and Dhoom 2. Sanju, when I spoke to you last week and we were reminiscing about our shoots and memories I would never have imagined even in my craziest dreams that I would have to write a post like this. I’m shocked beyond belief.
