Bollywood actor Faraaz Khan has passed away at 46 after battling a neurological disorder in Bengaluru today. Actor Pooja Bhatt announced the unfortunate news on Twitter today. Pooja said, “The void he has left behind will be impossible to fill.”

Faraaz’s family had also sought financial help earlier in October to pay the medical bills for the actor’s treatment. Actor Pooja Bhatt and Salman Khan had come forward to help the actor. Bhatt had earlier encouraged people on social media to contribute towards his medical bills. Faraaz’s family had set up a fundraiser for his medical treatment, detailing his illness and listing the hospital expenses as Rs 25 lakh.

After people contributed for the cause, including actor Salman Khan, Faraaz’s younger brother Fahmaan told Mumbai Mirror, “We will forever be grateful to Salman Khan. May God bless him and give him a long life.”

Faraaz was the son of actor Yusuf Khan and had risen to fame with his work in the late nineties and early 2000s. Take a look at his top five performances:
