Hrithik Roshan's grandfather and veteran filmmaker J Om Prakash passes away

Hrithik Roshan's maternal grandfather and veteran filmmaker J Om Prakash breathed his last at the age of 92 in Mumbai. Actor Deepak Parashar took to Twitter to confirm the demise of his uncle. ''Mr J Om Prakash”passed away about an hour ago So saddened as he joins his friend, my Mamaji “Mr Mohan Kumar “in heaven ! Their contributions to Indian cinema is a gift they left behind for us ! Took this pic few months ago when went to see him ! Om Shanti,” he tweeted.

J Om Prakash is known for his directorial hits such as Rajesh Khanna's Aap Ki Kasam (1974) and Aakhir Kyon? (1985). He also collaborated with Jeetendra for Apna Bana Lo (1982), Apnapan (1977), Aasha (1980), Arpan (1983), Aadmi Khilona Hai (1993).

Earlier, before the release of his film Super 30, Hrithik took to Twitter to share pictures with his 'deda' and wrote a heart-warming note, ''#MySuperTeacher - My Nana who I lovingly call Deda, for the lessons he has taught me at every stage of my life, which I share with my kids now. And Dr Oza, my speech therapist as a child, who taught me to accept my weakness and helped me overcome my fear of stammer''.

Hrithik was close to his maternal grandfather. He even gifted his maternal uncle a luxury car in 2016. As per Hindustan Times, the actor's nana was quite fond of a model of Mercedes Benz, hence, Hrithik surprised him by gifting that same car.

J Om Prakash's contribution to Hindi cinema will always be remembered. May his soul rest in peace.
