He was battling a kidney disease
Indian TV and film actor Ashiesh Roy passed away at his house in Mumbai on Tuesday.
According to Indian Express, the 55-year-old lost his life due to kidney failure.
“He collapsed around 3:45am,” Roy’s staff member confirmed to the publication. “He had a kidney ailment and his dialysis was also going on but he had gotten better in the last few weeks.”
Roy’s funeral will be held after his family members arrive from Kolkata. “His sister will arrive from Kolkata in the evening,” added the staff member.

Roy appeared in numerous television shows including Baa Bahu Aur Baby, Sasural Simar Ka, Mere Angne Mein, and Aarambh, and films such as Home Delivery and Raja Natwarlal.
