Bollywood actor Rajesh Vivek who was best know for his role of astrologer 'Guran' in Lagaan(2001) passed away today following a heart attack.

He was 66 years old and was shooting for his upcoming film in Hyderabad during which he got a heart attack. His body will be brought back to Mumbai tomorrow morning following which his funeral will take place at Versova cremation ground, Mumbai.

"I knew Rajesh for more than 40 years. It's extremely sad and a huge loss to the industry," his friend Vishnu Sharma told IANS.

He further added, "He passed away today (Thursday) around 3 o'clock in the afternoon."

Rajesh Vivek was a theater actor and has starred in many Bollywood movies including 'Swades' where he was seen playing the role of a postmaster. During the beginning of his career he established his mark in B-town by playing villain in Veerana and Joshilay.

Later on, he started doing comic roles and was also seen in mythological television series Mahabharat where he played Veda Vyasaya.

This versatile actor was also a part of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Whats Your Rashee? Bunty Aur Babli, etc.

We pray for the departed soul to rest in peace and may the Lord grant enough courage to the family to bear the loss.
