Ahuja was reportedly found dead under suspicious circumstances. The police have sent his body for a postmortem examination.

After suffering a heart attack, he was immediately rushed to the hospital and was declared dead on arrival.
Ahuja, who was adopted by Kumar, had directed movies like Jahaan Jayega Humein Payega, which saw Govinda playing the role of the protagonist.
