Renowned director and actor Satyadev Dubey passed away in Mumbai on Sunday after remaining in coma for four months. He was 75 years old when he died.

Dubey, mentor of hundreds of aspiring actors and a veteran screenplay writer, had suffered a seizure at Prithvi Theatre Cafe in suburban Juhu in September, and since then he was in a state of coma.

“He suffered a brain stroke and died in the hospital at 11.30 AM,” said Satyajit Dubey, his grand nephew.
