Actor Vishal Anand Known For The Hit Song Chalte Chalte Passed Away In Mumbai

Mumbai: Hero Vishal Anand, who appeared in Kishore Kumar's title song 'Chalte Chalte Mere Ye Geet Yaadna Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna', released in 1976 in 'Chalte Chalte', died in Mumbai on Sunday. He was 82 years old and was ill for a long time.

It is notable that in 'Chalte Chalte', Vishal Anand not only played the role of a hero, but also produced this film himself. Simi Grewal was his heroine in this film and through this film he gave Bappi Lahiri a break in Bollywood as a musician. Vishal Anand's real name was Bhishma Kohli and he had acted in 10 more films besides 'Chalte Chalte', but as an actor he did not get any significant success in Bollywood.

However, when ABP News called Vishal Anand's daughter Bhasin Kohli to ask for more information in this regard, he confirmed his father's death, but declined to say anything, citing privacy.

In such a situation, when ABP News contacted Vishal Anand's nephew and a few years ago, London-shifted actor Poorab Kohli, he made a statement issued by Vishal Anand's family, which said, "Bhishma Kohli has Vishal Anand Also known as. He died on October 04, 2020. He was 82 years old and his health was deteriorating for the last several months.
