Akshay Kumar offered condolences for Nimish Pilankar’s death. 

Housefull 4 and Race 3 sound editor Nimish Pilankar passed away on Monday, 26 November. He was only 29 years old. According to reports, Nimish suffered from high blood pressure, which resulted in brain hemorrhage.

Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to mourn the death of the sound editor. “ Very sad to learn about the passing away of Nimish Pilankar, that too at such a young age. My heart goes out to his family at this difficult time,” he wrote.


Pilankar’s death has triggered a debate on Twitter, with people saying that long working hours have put a lot of pressure on sound technicians.

Actor Vipin Sharma wrote, “Many techs work over time n rarely get paid for that. Its 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.”

Director and producer Mrunalinni Patil wrote, “SOUND TECHNICIAN, NIMISH PILANKAR, aged 29, has passed away...of high blood pressure leading to brain haemorrhage. Point is; does anyone care? Technicians contribute silently n immeasurably to Bollywood cinema. They work long hours coz they love cinema. Do they get credit."
