Gagan Kang, and Arjit Lavania were known for their roles in the popular mythological TV serial Mahakali - Anth Hi Aarambh Hai on Colors.

TV actor Gagan Kang, known for his role as Lord Indra in the popular mythological TV serial Mahakali - Anth Hi Aarambh Hai on Colors, died in an accident on Saturday. He was accompanied by two more people, actor Arjit Lavania who played Nandi in the serial and a spotboy, who also died.

The trio was returning from Gujarat’s Umbergaon when the accident took place at the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway in Palghar district near Mumbai. The spotboy was seated in the rear seat of the car.

Kang, who was driving, lost control of the vehicle at around 11:15 am, and crashed into a stationary trailer. The police initially detained the driver of the trailer, but found that he was innocent as his vehicle had been correctly parked. Eye-witnesses said that the car’s roof got crushed in the impact of the crash.

Kang’s peers in the TV industry offered condolences on social media:

Will always cherish the fun times we had together..#gagankang #rip #BRO #tooyoungtodie
