Mumbai: Actor Ashraf-ul-Haq, best known for his roles in 'Fukrey' and 'Traffic Signal', died today at the age of 45 after losing a battle with a blood-related disease.

The NSD graduate had been suffering from Myelodysplastic Syndrome for last two years, said his friend Daulat Vaid.

"He died at 1:27 PM. He was kept on a ventilator for last three days. But he was declared dead today," Daulat told PTI.

The Assam-born actor started his career with theatres and worked with renowned playwrights including Ram Gopal Bajaj before trying his luck in Bollywood.

In 'Fukrey' he played the character of a drunkard who had loads of money but lived like a beggar on streets. He was last seen in national award-winning film 'The Lost Behrupiya' (2013), where he played the lead role.

He is survived by his wife.
