Ramesh Deo

Ramesh Deo, a veteran Bollywood and Marathi cinema actor, director, and producer best known for his appearances in films like ‘Anand’ and ‘Mere Apne’, died of a heart attack on Wednesday.

The news: Deo was 93 years old when he died. His son, well-known Marathi actor Ajinkya, informed the media that he had been ill for a few days.

  • He is survived by his wife, Seema, who is also an actress, and two sons, Ajinkya and Abhinay, who directed the films ‘Game’ and ‘Delhi Belly’.
  • Born on January 30, 1926, in Amravati, Maharashtra, Deo celebrated his 93rd birthday three days ago, and a number of his well-wishers took to Twitter to express their joy.
  • The character actor is most recognised by Hindi film fans for his performance as a doctor in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Anand’ (1971), starring Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, and in Gulzar’s ‘Mere Apne’ (1971), starring Meena Kumari, Vinod Khanna, and Shatrughan Sinha.
  • Deo had a variety of parts in Hindi films throughout the course of five decades, including the black comedy ‘Jolly LLB’ (starring Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani) in 2013 and Sunny Deol’s ‘Ghayal Once Again’ in 2016.
  • However, Deo’s first love was Marathi cinema. In 1951, he made his debut in the film ‘Patlachi Por’, in which he had a cameo. In 1956, he made his debut in the starring part with ‘Andhala Magto Ek Dola’.

Deo appeared in nearly 250 films, produced more than a dozen, and directed a few more. He was the recipient of a number of honours, including the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 11th Pune International Film Festival in 2013.
