Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's
The whole of Bollywood has come to a sudden standstill with the
most unexpected news that broke out this morning. Shomu Mukherjee,
the proud father of bubbly and effervescent Kajol, father-in-law to
Ajay Devgan and Tanuja's husband passed away this morning. Death
could not have been stone-hearted to have taken away the man, when
his darling daughter and son-in-law's magnum opus film (U, Me
Aur Hum) is just a day away from its gala release.
from a family headed by his father, Sashadhar Mukherjee (famously
known as the founder of Filmistan studios), Shomu was the youngest
of the three siblings, the other two being Joy Mukherjee and Deb
Mukherjee. While Joy and Deb went on to become actors, Shomu took
the plunge to become a director and producer.
We at Oneindia convey our deepest condolence to the bereaved
family of Shomu Mukherjee. May his soul rest in peace.
