"Vinay had worked with me in 'Chandni Bar', 'Corporate' and 'Traffic Signal," wrote the filmmaker.

Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpai described Apte's death as a massive loss.

He too took to Twitter to express grief and wrote: "Oh god! Just heard that famous theatre and film actor Vinay Apteji is no more. May his family get all the strength to bear this massive loss!"
