In a tribute to late director Jagmohan Mundhra, actress Yuvika Chaudhary, who worked with him in his last project 'Naughty@40', said he "lived life to the fullest and was a bundle of knowledge".

Filmmaker Jagmohan Mundhra suffered a heart attack and died at the Bombay Hospital on Marine Lines on Sunday afternoon. He was 62.

Mundhra is known for his socially-relevant films including Provoked starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and based on the life of Kiranjit Ahluwalia, a London-based Punjabi woman who was a victim of domestic violence.

The Los Angeles-based director was hospitalised in the city two days ago. "On Friday night, he was admitted for internal bleeding. Thereafter, he suffered a cardiac arrest and was kept on ventilation. But he expired at 12.57pm on Sunday," said a doctor at Bombay Hospital. Mundhra's body was taken to his Shivaji Park residence and cremated at a neighbouring crematorium. "I spoke to him the day before and he seemed perfectly fine," said actor Seema Biswas, who was about the start shooting for Mundhra's Kissa Kuttey Ka. Mundhra was keen on making a film on Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
