Nimish Pilankar, the sound editor of Housefull 4 and Race 3, passes away at 29
Nimish Pilankar, who worked as the sound editor on films like Race 3, Housefull 4 and the recent Marjaavaan, passed away at the age of 29 due to brain hemorrhage
In an unfortunate incident, sound designer Nimish Pilankar, who worked on some very big films like Race 3, Housefull 4 and Marjaavaan, breathed his last due to high blood pressure that resulted in brain hemorrhage. The news definitely comes as both shocking and saddening that technicians work day and night and perspire on film sets without taking care of their health.
Ace film critic and noted journalist tweeted about the news on his Twitter account and also raised a crucial question- Do people even care about the technicians that also pour in as much effort into making a film? They are the backbone of a film after all.
Take a look right here:

Actor Vipin Sharma also gave out his reaction to the news, check it out:
Many techs work over time n rarely get paid for that. Its terrible. Afraid to loose work they stay quiet n keep working. Many times they may not get fully paid as well while they already accept to work for less money in the first place. Rest in Peace Nimish Pilankar. https://t.co/DdjHgXCeJb— Vipin Sharma ðÂÂ¨ðÂÂ¦ðÂÂ¥ðÂÂ®ðÂÂ³ (@sharmamatvipin) November 24, 2019
