    The 53-year-old actor Asif Basra gave a remarkable performance in the American comedy film Outsourced (2006). He was last seen in the thriller web series ‘Hostages’, and did several Bollywood films including a movie on the 1993 Mumbai blasts, ‘Black Friday’, and the 2002 Gujarat riots, ‘Parzania’.

    The sudden death of actor Asif Basra, who was reportedly found hanging in a private complex in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh on Thursday, has left his fans and Bollywood celebs shocked.

    Speaking to Sputnik, a senior official from the Himachal Pradesh Police said that at first glance, it appears to be a case of suicide. However, all the angles are being examined.

    Shocked by the news, filmmaker Hansal Mehta took to social media and wrote, “Can’t be true... This is just very, very sad.”
