┬áMarathi actor Ravindra Mahajani, who is known for films such as ‘Mumbai cha Fauzdar’, ‘Zoonj’ and ‘Kalat Nakalat’ was found dead in his Talegaon residence near Pune. He was 77.

A police officer said that the actor passed away 3 days before his body was discovered. The actor’s body will be handed over to the family for the last rites after his autopsy.

Mahajani was found dead in a locked flat at Xrbia Housing Society in Ambi area of the Talegaon Dabhade after neighbours complained of a foul smell from the house.

As per media reports, Ravindra’s son Gashmeer Mahajani had been trying to reach his father but the phone calls were going unanswered. Hours before his body was found, Gashmeer asked a friend in Pune to visit Talegaon Dabhade to check on his father.
