Narendra got married to Pankaja Thakur three years back. Pankaja is the former CEO of the Censor Board and this was her second wedding. She is having a daughter from her first marriage. The family is still in a shock after the sudden death of the actor.
These kind of deaths are becoming so common in the industry that we are made to think that, “Are our stars really fit?”. We pray that the soul of the actor Rest In Peace. Not only actors but our students are also tensed and committing suicides.
