New Delhi: Bollywood’s celebrated photographer – Jagdish Mali – passed away today at 11:20 am at Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai. Mali was dealing with health issues and thus was admitted to the hospital. He was battling depression along with problems of alcohol addiction and had turned into a recluse. The news of Mali’s death spread like wildfire in the film circuit and celebrities took to the microblogging site Twitter to express their grief.

In January 2013, the Mali was in the news for sometime when he was spotted by starlet Mink Brar roaming on the streets of Mumbai in a disheveled state looking clueless. He was suffering from a chronic mental ailment even then.
Jagdish Mali is also a father of actress Antara Mali who has done a few Hindi films. May his soul rest in peace forever.
