Filmmaker Ravi Chopra did in Mumbai at the age of 68. Celebrities such as Madhur Bhandarkar, Rati Agnihotri and Smriti Irani said his death is a huge loss to the film industry. The Baghban director had been reportedly suffering from a severe lung ailment since the last few years.

Here’s what the celebrities have to say:

Madhur Bhandarkar: Saddened to hear about demise of Ravi Chopra-ji. Apart from being a fine filmmaker, he was also a very nice human being. Rest in Peace, Sir.

Rati Agnihotri: Oh my god. I am in Punjab shooting. I am truly sad.

Divya Dutta: I just got the news. It’s certainly very sad news and a huge loss for this industry. He was one man who was full of life. For me, working with him in Baghban was like a picnic. He never used to get sad or stressed over anything.

Raajpal Yadav: He was the most lovable and humble person I have ever come across. I worked with him in ‘Baabul’ and before that he had given a huge hit film Baghban, but still he was so down to earth. He was a wonderful person but, unfortunately his health was not good. It’s certainly a very sad news.

Payal Rohatgi: RIP #RaviChopra Sir. May God give strength to the family. A huge loss to the Indian Film Industry.

Smriti Irani: Just heard about the sad demise of Ravi Chopra. Was blessed to work with him. A lovely soul. My condolences to his loved ones.

Alok Nath: Rest in peace Mr.Ravi Chopra, i will ever be grateful to you for giving me a break in Aaj ki aawaz during my struggle time. RIP sir.

Tusshar Kapoor: RIP Mr Ravi Chopra, deep condolences for the entire family, may his soul rest in peace!
