Actor Sachin Kumar, who was well-known for his role in Ekta Kapoor's Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii passed away on the morning of May 15, 2020 due to a heart attack. Sachin had walked away from the acting profession a long time ago and had turned a photographer. His good friends Rakesh Paul and Chetan Hansraj confirmed the news. Rakesh revealed to TOI, "Yes, it is heart-breaking to share the news, but it is true. I couldn't see him by the time I learnt about his demise, he was already taken to the crematorium. What I have learnt is that he went to sleep and the next day he did not open the door. His parents panicked and they got keys and when they opened the door, he had passed away. He was staying with his parents. The incident happened probably late in the night or early morning." Splitsvilla 4 Contestant and Actor Sai Gundewar Dies Of Brain Cancer at 42.
