Balaji Telefilmsâ€™ most popular director Garry Bhinder is no more. He breathed his last on Sunday night at Hinduja Hospital. He was 33 and is survived by wife Roshan and two children. A close friend of the family informs, â€œGarry had blood cancer three years ago but apparently he had been cured. But, he had a relapse on June 24 and was immediately rushed to the Hinduja Hospital. His condition took a turn for the worse on July 4 and he was declared dead on Sunday at 11.30 pm. He had complications in his lungs, which were blocked. He then contracted pneumonia, which became the reason for his untimely death.”
Garry had been working with Balaji for eight years and had started as an assistant to Anurag Kashyap. He had been associated with all major Balaji shows like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii.
“Before his health deteriorated, he was working on Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki and Kiss Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil.
He was also the highest paid director in Balaji and had a very bright future. He was cremated at the Oshiwara crematorium on Monday morning.
All the top actors from the TV industry and head honchos of Balaji came there to pay their respects,â€ adds the friend.
