Actor Jagesh Mukati, who played the title role in “Shree Ganesha”, is no more, confirmed Dheeraj Kumar, director and visionary behind the 2000 show.
Jagesh passed away on June 10.
“I can’t believe Jagesh Mukati is no more with us. He worked with me 20 years ago as Lord Ganesh for the show ‘Shree Ganesh’ and recently we connected again to promote the show. He did mention about being unwell and I told him that he will be fit and fine soon. And suddenly, we have lost him,” said Dheeraj.
“From the core of my heart and from all our colleagues, we pray to god to give strength to his family to bear this untimely loss and pray to the almighty for the departed soul. Jagesh was a fine human being, fun loving person, very down to earth and a great artiste. His contribution to art in theatre is immense. May his memories linger in our minds for ever,” he added.
Jagesh also starred in the show “Amita Ka Amit”, and films like “Hasee Toh Phasee” and “Mann”.
Meanwhile, “Shree Ganesha” is enjoying a re-run on Star Plus.
