Arun Bali, a seasoned performer, passed away on Friday at about 4.30 am as a result of an ongoing age-related disease. Ankush Bali, the senior actor’s son, confirmed to that the cremation would take place on Saturday while they awaited the arrival of some family members from the US in Mumbai. His most recent movies were Laal Singh Chaddha, with Aamir Khan, and Goodbye, with Amitabh Bachchan. Both came out on Friday.

Arun Bali, who was born in 1942 in Jalandhar, Punjab, is well-known for his roles in a variety of movies, including 3 Idiots (2009), PK (2014), Airlift (2016), Kedarnath (2018), and Panipat (2019). In 1989, he made his television debut on Doosra Kewal. Later, he was in many TV shows, such as Chankaya, Swabhimaan, and Kumkum Pyaara Sa Bandhan.

Earlier this year, Arun received a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis, a rare neuromuscular condition. The sickness took a toll on him, and he was frequently in and out of the hospital since it was brought on by a breakdown in nerve-muscle connection.

In an interview with ETimes in January of this year, television artist Nupur Alankar stated, “I was on call with Arun Bali sir when I sensed something is majorly wrong with his speech and pointed it out to him. After that I tried contacting his son Ankush, but couldn’t get through. Then I called up Rajeev Menon who is Ankush’s colleague and got his other number and I advised him to take Arun sir to the hospital immediately. I was later told by Arun sir’s daughter about his condition.”

There was speculation that his son had abandoned him, which was dismissed by his son.
