Actor Faraaz Khan breathed his last on Wednesday. On October 14, it was revealed that Faraaz suffered three consecutive seizures owing to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. The actor was admitted to a hospital in Bengaluru last month after he developed pneumonia as a consequence of the seizures.

The news of his demise was shared on Twitter by actress Pooja Bhatt. She wrote: "With a heavy heart I break the news that #FaraazKhan has left us for what I believe, is a better place.Gratitude to all for your help & good wishes when he needed it most.Please keep his family in your thoughts & prayers.The void he has left behind will be impossible to fill (sic)."

The family started a fundraiser for the actor's treatment. Actors like Salman Khan and Pooja Bhatt had come forward to provide financial aid.

"Faraaz was admitted to the emergency ward of Vikram hospital where we found out that he suffered three consecutive seizures due to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. Besides, while he suffered from these seizures, he swallowed the mucus and saliva of his cough which entered his lungs and caused pneumonia," the family had said in the statement.

"The doctors are trying their best to get him out of danger but that will require another 7-10 days of critical care...It has been years since Faraaz has worked in films. And 25 lakhs is a huge amount to be arranged. We have a simple life and earn our living with our job and enjoy spending the weekends with our family," the family added.

Faraaz starred opposite Rani Mukerji in the 1998 release "Mehndi" and also toplined Vikram Bhatt's 1996 thriller "Fareb".
