RIP Goldie

Vijay "Goldie" Anand (the youngest of the Anand brothers; director/writer/producer/lyricist/actor) responsible for several strong entries in Bollywood mainstream cinema (including Guide and Jewel Thief) passed away at 71 today (morning IST), two days after a massive heart attack. {outlookindia}. The last film he was working on, Jaana Na Dil Se Door, a tribute to his brother Chetan Anand, with lyrics by the late Kaifi Azmi faced problems getting released, and early this month, Goldie mentioned that it would see the light of day within the next two months.
