Rupali Ganguly, Sneha Wagh and Deepika Singh remember late actor Rituraj Singh.

Actor Rituraj Singh passed away on Tuesday, February 20. As reported by ETimes, the actor was suffering from some pancreatic disease and was hospitalised recently after he faced a cardiac arrest. However, he passed away on Tuesday at the age of 59. Rituraj Singh’s sudden demise has sent shockwaves across the entertainment industry.

Rupali Ganguly took to Instagram and wrote, “Dear Rituraj Sir, It was an honour to share screen space with you… like an enthusiastic student getting to learn her favourite subject from a teacher who has taught many others, I was overjoyed… You said you had seen my work and yet I wanted to prove to you that I could earn my place in the frame standing next to one of the legends of television whom I had watched growing up… your all-knowing smile after our scenes and your words of encouragement was like a report card to me.”

She added, “I was thrilled by your kind words… but there was so much more to learn Sir…. These pictures I had taken of you when you wore the chef cap… I was tardy in sending it to you… never thought these would be put up here as a remembrance…. Your life stories, quirky sense of humour, immense knowledge about world cinema and talent shall always be remembered. Thank you for being Yashpal Sir to my Anupamaa. Thank you for the words that left an indelible mark.”

Actress Deepika Singh said, “I have not known him very well but we did meet once and he came across as someone who is very genuine the short meeting left a lasting impression on me..i did wish to work with him at some point sadly it will always remain unfulfilled.”

Sandiip Sikcand also remembered the late actor and said, “I am shocked and heartbroken on hearing the news! Someone posted the news on one of my whats app groups early in the morning and since I have just been in shock. I have worked closely with Rhitu in Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii, he was one of the only actors who gave me a warm welcome on the show. To say that he was a brilliant actor is an obvious thing, but more than an actor he was one of the finest human beings that I know. I am really saddened by the news. May his soul rest in peace and may his wife and kids get the strength to deal with this loss.”

“It’s just a couple of days ago that my first Hindi tv series Jyoti completed its 15 years of launch and today this news of Rituraj ji passing away has literally had me in shock! I was very young and I remember him mentoring us like we were little kids. He played an important role in the show. When we were on set, his cheerful laughter changed the whole environment. He made sure that everyone was in a good mood. It’s really not okay to wake up to such sad news. Recently I saw him in a lot of movies and OTT shows. He was doing well. I wish he had taken better care of his health too. My condolences to his family and friends.

We never know what times are ahead of us, let’s pray for each one of us to gather the strength of facing realities of life,” said actress Sneha Wagh.

Rituraj Singh is known for shows like Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Kutumb, Abhay 3 and Never Kiss Your Best Friend among others. He was also seen in Rupali Ganguly’s superhit show, Anupamaa. Rituraj also worked in films like Satyamev Jayate 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. In the latter, he played Varun Dhawan’s father. The film also starred Alia Bhatt in the lead.
