New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday condoled the death of veteran actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar, who he says, will be remembered for his versatility.
"We will remember Sadashiv Amrapurkar as a versatile actor, popular across generations. RIP. My deepest condolences to his family," read a post on Modi's Twitter handle @narendramodi.
Sadashiv was hospitalised at the Kokilabein Dhirubai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai with lung infection. He died Monday.
Amrapurkar had won two Filmfare awards. In 1984, he won the award for the best supporting actor for "Ardh Satya" and in 1991, the best villain trophy for his portrayal of a ruthless eunuch in "Sadak".
His other works include "Aankhen", "Ishq", "Coolie No. 1" and "Gupt: The Hidden Truth".
He later shifted his focus on Marathi movies. Amrapurkar was last seen on the big screen in 2012 film 'Bombay Talkies'. He had become selective and was more into social work in last few years.
