Well-known filmmaker Arjun Hingorani who is known for his hit films 'Kahani Kismat Ki', 'Khel Khiladi Ka', 'Katilon Ke Kaatil' and 'Karishma Kudrat Ka' and many more, died on Saturday night in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh at the age of 92. The veteran actor was famous for giving the most charming actor Dharmendra a break in Bollywood.

Dharmendra expressed his deepest condolences via his tweet that read,"Arjun Hingorani, the man who put his hand around the shoulder of this loner in Mumbai, has left us forever... I am extremely sad! May his soul rest in peace." Moreover, Hingorani was not just a filmmaker but an actor who appeared in small cameo roles as well. 

The CFJ expresses deep sorrow on the sad demise of well-known producer-director Arjun Hingorani. "His friendship with Dharmendra was evident from the fact that Dharmendra starred in most of his films. What's more? Even when Dharmendra opened his studio Sunny Super Sounds, he was the first one to make the booking," a statement read.

Arjun made his first film 'Abana' in 1958, India's first Sindhi film, and launched the beautiful actress Sadhana. Later on, he launched Dharmendra in 1960 with the film 'Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere'. From there he went on to work with the actor in a series of films, including 'Kab Kyoon Aur Kahan', 'Kahani Kismat Ki', 'Khel Khilari Ka', 'Katilon Ke Katil' and 'Kaun Kare Kurbanie'.

May his soul Rest in peace!
