Bollywood expresses grief over death of Girish Karnad

AMN / MUMBAI

Celebrated filmmaker Shyam Benegal, who directed Karnad in critically-acclaimed films “Manthan” and “Nishant”, said he was heartbroken about the demise of his long-time collaborator and friend.

Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah remembered Karnad for being a major driving force in getting him his break in cinema with Benegal’s “Nishant”.

He said Karnad was an intellectual giant and a compassionate person, who will be missed in very many ways by very many people.

Many other prominent personalities like Shabana Azmi, Deepa Mehta, Anil Kapoor, Nandita Das and Prabudeva tweeted their condolences.

Karnad’s last commercial film appearance was “Tiger Zinda Hai”. Ali Abbas Zafar, who helmed the movie recalled Karnad as a man with a golden heart and fountain of knowledge.
