Young Actor Dies, Reason Unknown!

  • 12 Jul 2019

This is sad news for fans of Amit Purohit, who was famous for his role in the film "Sammohanam", as the actor had passed away yesterday.

There is still little information on the cause of death for now, but his death is certainly shocking as Amit was a relatively young man who has had several films under his belt such as Shobhna's "Seven Nights", "Aalaap" and "Bijuka", and 2010's "Pankh".

The news of his death was shared by actor Sudheer Babu and "Sammohanam" director Mohan Krishna Indragati.

The actor was very private as very few details of his life are publicly known. Amit Purohit's co-stars Aditi, Sudheer Babu and Sonu Sood were reeling from the shock upon hearing the news and have posted tributes to him on Twitter.

Sudheer Babu wrote in a tweet posted yesterday: "Saddened by the death news of Amit Purohit. He played Amit Malhotra (Sameera's ex-boyfriend) in Sammohanam. Very friendly guy and always gave 100% for every shot. Another young and good actor left us too early. May his soul find peace."


Aditi Rao Hydari tweeted: "Rest in peace, Amit Purohit. Prayers and healing to the family. A kind, gentle, hardworking person gone too soon. Thank you for your invaluable presence in Sammohanam."


Sonu Sood described the late actor as a 'dear friend, writing: "Really sad to hear about the tragic death of a dear friend and co-star Amit Purohit. He was such a great soul, so focused and so hardworking. May your soul rest in peace bhai. Will miss you always."


Raveena Tandon, who co-starred with the actor in Shobhna's Seven Nights, tweeted: "Really saddened to hear of the passing of such a young and talented Amit. Such a gentleman."


Sammohanam director Mohan Indraganti said in his tweet that he had wanted to cast Amit Purohit in another film: "I am unable to believe it. Amit Purohit, one of the gentlest, well-behaved and hugely talented actors I have worked with. And such a generous man. Amit, I will miss you, man. I was thinking of casting you again soon. May you rest in peace, brother."


Amit played Aditi Rao Hydari's ex-boyfriend in "Sammohanam" and his talent was obvious to everyone who watched the film. The film's story revolved around an unlikely romance between a fan and an actor.

Even The Hindustan Times noted the late actor's talents in its review of the film writing, "The film unfolds as a sweet love story of a man who has preconceived notions but still falls in love with a woman who wants to make it big in that profession. The misunderstandings are mellowed down, the romance is adorable and the shift in visuals every time Aditi comes on screen signifies her status as the star."

Stay tuned for updates on this tragic event.
