‘Bandish Bandits’ actor Amit Mistry dies of cardiac arrest at 47

Popular Gujarati and Hindi film actor Amit Mistry, known for starring in films like ‘Shor In The City’, ‘Bey Yaar’ and Amazon Prime Video series ‘Bandish Bandits’, died on Friday following cardiac arrest, his manager said.

The 47-year-old actor was at his residence in Andheri with his mother when he breathed his last around 9.30 am.

“He woke up, had his breakfast and even exercised before he suffered a cardiac arrest. He was absolutely fit and fine. Amit had no underlining medical condition. It’s an absolutely shocking news,” the actor’s manager Maharshi Desai told PTI.

Mistry is survived by his mother. The actor was a prominent face in the Gujarati theatre circuit.

His work in Hindi films like ‘Kya Kehna’, ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’, especially his collaborations with filmmaker Raj-DK, including ‘99’, ‘Shor In The City’ and ‘A Gentleman’ got him wider attention.

Mistry also earned acclaim in last year’s hit series ‘Bandish Bandits’ playing musician Devendra Rathod. His TV credits include popular show ‘Yeh Duniya Hai Rangeen’.

Mistry’s sudden death shocked his colleagues and industry people.

Actor Tisca Chopra also expressed shock. “Such a lovely guy, totally chill…deepest condolences to the family,” she wrote.
