Theatre and film actor Asif Basra, known for films like Outsourced, Black Friday, Parzania, Jab We Met and Krrish 3 and more recently Amazon Prime Video’s Paatal Lok and Disney+ Hotstar’s Hostages, died by suicide at a private guest house in McLeod Ganj, Himachal Pradesh.

Vimukt Ranjan, SP Dharamshala, told indianexpress.com, “Asif Basra committed suicide today morning. The body has gone for post-mortem. It will be done tomorrow. There is no suicide note.”

Sachin Krishn, who directed Basra in his last on-screen outing Hostages season 2, told indianexpress.com, “I am stunned by the news. I don’t know the full facts. He was such a jovial person on sets. In fact, we used to envy his life because he would stay in the hills and come to Mumbai only to shoot. He was not only a fine actor but more importantly, a beautiful person. It feels like a personal loss.”
