He was rushed to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

His Dhoom stars pay him tribute.

Abhishek Bachchan: I took this photo of Sanjay whilst we were filming the climax of Dhoom 2 in South Africa. We made 2 films together -- Dhoom and Dhoom 2.

Sanju, when I spoke to you last week and we were reminiscing about our shoots and memories I would never have imagined even in my craziest dreams that I would have to write a post like this.

I'm shocked beyond belief.

You had faith in me, even when I didn't. You gave me my first ever hit!!! I can never ever forget that or be able express what it meant to me. I will cherish your friendship always. Rest in peace my brother.
