When he took a cab, he told the driver that he's not feeling well after which he was taken to Nanavati hospital. In the hospital, the doctors said that he suffered a heart attack and declared him dead.

Aziz's daughter Sana Aziz has said that they got to know about this news around 3 pm today. "He always used to travel with someone. So, we got a call from them only. He died due to heart blockage. The problem started even before he boarded the flight but he just wanted to get back home. The last rites will happen in Mumbai only but not much has been decided yet."
