Kajol's father dead

Kajol's father Shomu Mukherjee passed away in Mumbai on Thursday morning. He was 65.

The filmmaker had not been keeping well for some time, and died of a heart attack around 8 am.

Shomu is survived by his wife, actress Tanuja and two daughters, Kajol [Images] and Tanisha.

Son of Shashidhar Mukherjee, the famous Bollywood film producer of the 1950s, Shomu produced and directed films like Chaliya Babu, Patthar Ke Insaan, Lover Boy and Nanha Shikhari in the 1980s. He was also one of the owners of the famous Filmalya studio. The last film that he directed was Sangdhil Sanam in 1994.

The funeral will take place at Mumbai's Santa Cruz crematorium at 2 pm, sources said.

Mukherji passed away on the eve of his son-in-law Ajay Devgan's [Images] directorial debut U Me Aur Hum, casting a pall of gloom in the family. Family sources said the film, however, will be released as per the schedule.
