NEW DELHI: Renowned Bollywood analyst and film producer Vikas Mohan passed away today, aged 65. Mohan who was founder editor of the film trade paper ‘Super Cinema’ suffered a heart attack yesterday evening and was hospitalized. His end came early this morning.

Mohan is survived by his wife and two sons who were presently working with him on his magazine. Mohan had undergone a by-pass surgery around two decades earlier.

Vikas had produced the Gulzar-directed ‘Libaas’ in 1988 earlier which became a national award winner and later produced the film “Arzoo” in 1999 starring Akshay Kumar and Madhuri Dixit.

The last rites were held this afternoon in the presence of a large number of Bollywood celebrities and media persons.

Known to always help out filmmakers, at least nine other Bollywood films including ‘Shagird’, ‘No Problem’, ‘Action Replayy’, ‘Akrosh’, ‘Anjaane’ and ‘Page 3’ carried special or sincere thanks to him in the credits.

Several Bollywood celebrities mourned the death of Mohan. They described him as a respected and wonderful human being.

Filmmaker Karan Johar in a tweet called him a “a truly respected and loved member of our fraternity… Always helpful and supportive…thoughts and prayers to the family”.
