While confirming the news of his demise, Parvez’s longtime assistant Nishant Khan in his interaction with Indian Express said, “He was rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead. He was completely fine and healthy. Last night, he felt chest pain. He would often tell people that one has to go through pain in life and it was no big deal. His team would call him Tiger because he never gave a reaction for any pain."

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta reacted to the news of his demise by tweeting, "Just heard that action director Parvez Khan is no more. We had worked together in Shahid where he executed the riots sequence in a single take. Very skilful, energetic and a good man. RIP Parvez. Your voice still rings in my ears!”
