Veteran actor Viju Khote most famous for playing the dacoit Kalia in Sholay passed away on Monday.
The actor died at his residence due to multiple organ failure. He was 77.
Viju niece Bhavana Balsavar quoted saying to media, “He passed away today at 6.55 am peacefully in his sleep at the residence. He has been unwell since quite some time. He had multiple organ failure. He did not wish to die in the hospital so we had brought him home a few days ago. It is a great loss for all of us”
The last rites will be performed at Chandan Wadi around 11 am. Khote featured in popular films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Andaz Apna Apna and the TV show Zabaan Sambhalke.
