Popular Bhojpuri film director Shad Kumar (49) committed suicide by hanging self. The incident happened barely a fortnight ahead of his latest film Swarg’s release. The film unit is shocked by Shad Kumar’s death.
Shad Kumar aka Shamshad Ahmed has made several hugely successful films in Bhojpuri. Among his hit films are ‘Ek Laila Teen Chaila’ and ‘Tumhare Pyar Ki Kasam’. Shad began his film career as an assistant cameraman and soon grew into a popular director. Sources close to him said that Shad suffered losses as some of his recent films failed to click at the box-office. Mounting debt burden may have forced him to resort to the extreme act.
