2020 keeps getting worse. Veteran producer and director Harish Shah passed away today at the age of 76 at his residence. He was suffering from throat cancer. His brother Vinod Shah told Indian Express, “Harish was battling throat cancer for ten years. He passed away today at 6 am. He was 76 years old. His funeral will take place today around 1 pm at Pawan Hans crematorium. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, very few people are allowed for the funeral.
