Bollywood actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar, who played a menacing transgender villain in the Hindi film SADAK in 1991, died on Monday morning in a Mumbai hospital. He was 64.


The actor was being treated for lung infection at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH).

Sadashiv Amarapurkar was a versatile actor who performed in both Marathi and Hindi films since the 1980s. He was a screen villain in many Bollywood movies.

He had received the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role in 1991 for SADAK.

Later the actor was also seen playing comedian in several films but perhaps he would always be remembered for the transgender Maharani running a brothel in SADAK, a film made by Mahesh Bhatt.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled the passing away of Sadashiv Amrapurkar.

'We will remember Shri Sadashiv Amrapurkar as a versatile actor, popular across generations. Rest in Peace. My deepest condolences to his family,' the Prime Minister said in a tweet.
