Kapur’s maternal uncle Sunil Bhalla confirmed the news to indianexpress.com, sharing that the casting director passed away on May 31.
“He died at 2.30 in the afternoon. This has come as a shock to us. He was so young and had no medical history,” Bhalla said.
Krish Kapur collapsed at his apartment, which led to excessive bleeding from his nose. He died due to brain haemorrhage.
