Filmmaker Raj Kaushal, who directed movies like 'Shaadi Ka Laddoo and 'Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi', passed away early Wednesday morning following a heart attack, family friend and actor Rohit Roy said. He was in his 50s. Kaushal was married to actor-TV presenter Mandira Bedi. The couple has two children, son Vir and daughter Tara. For the uninitiated, Mandira and Raj adopted Tara during the first wave of a pandemic outbreak. The duo was excited to share the news when their younger daughter accepted them as a family.

"He passed away today morning, at around 4.30 am at his home. He had a heart attack," Roy told PTI. 

Apart from direction, Kaushal had also produced filmmaker Onir's 2005 acclaimed drama 'My Brother, Nikhil', starring Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawla. Onir paid tributes to Kaushal on Twitter. "Gone too soon. We lost film maker and producer @rajkaushal1 this morning. Very Sad. He was one of the producers of my first film #MyBrotherNikhil. One of those few who believed in our vision and supported us. Prayers for his soul," Onir wrote.

Kaushal's last directorial was the 2006 thriller, 'Anthony Kaun Hai?', starring Arshad Warsi and Sanjay Dutt. Raj Kaushal is survived by his wife Mandira and kids - Vir and Tara.
