Bangalore: Bollywood actor Bob Christo, the man who played “gora” henchman in films of the eighties and nineties, including Amitabh Bachchan’s “Namak Halal” and “Agneepath”, passed away in Bangalore on Sunday afternoon.
The 70-year-old actor, of Australian origin, died of “rupture of left ventricle free valve”, or cardiac rupture in simple terms, at Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research, sources in the hospital told PTI.
Christo was admitted to the hospital yesterday after he complained of chest pain, and it turned out that he had a heart attack. The doctors performed angioplasty but his condition continued to be critical. One of the arteries even had a 90 per cent block.
