Actor Raza Murad, his friend from the theatre industry, confirmed the news.

"Dinesh Thakur passed away today morning. He was not keeping well since last three to four years," Raza told IANS.

He is survived by actor-wife Prita Mathur.

Thakur mainly appeared in character roles in Hindi films, as a screenwriter and story writer. He is known for writing the story and screenplay of 1978 film "Ghar", which won him the 1979 Filmfare best story award.

He was also seen in popular television serial "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi".
