Initially reported to have suffered a heart attack, it was later clarified that Phadnis battled liver damage, a condition that led to his hospitalization on Friday. Despite the team’s efforts, including placing him on a ventilator, Phadnis’s health deteriorated rapidly.

His passing serves as a poignant reminder of the fragility of life, emphasizing the importance of cautious medication practices. Phadnis, respected for his contributions to Indian television, leaves behind a legacy of memorable performances, especially as the beloved Inspector Fredericks.
