The cause of Anil's death has not been revealed by his family yet, but reports suggest he suffered a massive cardiac arrest. The details of his last rites have also not been made public. As said by Ajay, there will be no prayer meeting for the departed.
Anil began his career with the film Raju Chacha, which was as ambitious as it was entertaining. It was loved by the kids. It doesn't matter if it could win over adults or not. He was also the creative director on movies like Shivaay and Son of Sardar. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
