Dharmesh Tiwari passes away
MUMBAI: Cine and TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) honorary general secretary and president of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) president Dharmesh Tiwari passed away today. He was 63.
Tiwari, who had actively taken up issues faced by artists and fought for their welfare, was in Chandigarh for an event. He was a diabetic and as his health deteriorated, he was admitted to a hospital, where he breathed his last.
Born on 27 April 1951, Tiwari is survived by his wife and two daughters. He was best remembered for essaying the role of Kripacharya in BR Chopra’s ‘Mahabharat’ in the late 1980s on Doordarshan.
His body will be kept at his Juhu residence on Thursday for public to pay last respects.
