Renowned sound editor Nimish Pilankar passed away at the young age of 29 in Mumbai. As per the reports, Nimish suffered from high blood pressure, which resulted in brain hemorrhage.
Nimish’s first project in Bollywood was Salman Khan’s Race 3. He went on to work in films like Housefull 4, Bypass Road, Marjaavan and others.
From directors to actors, no known personality from the Hindi film industry has stated on Nimish’s death at the time of filing this report.
Nimish’s death has triggered a debate on Twitter, with people saying that unfixed, long working hours put a lot of pressure on sound technicians.
Actor Vipin Sharma wrote, “Many techs work overtime n rarely get paid for that. It is terrible. Afraid to lose work they stay quiet n keep working. Many times they may not get fully paid as well while they already accept to work for less money in the first place. Rest in Peace Nimish Pilankar.”
