Film journalist Chandi Dutt Shukla passed away yesterday (11th May) in his hometown, Gonda, in Uttar Pradesh due to various ailments, predominantly diabetes. He was 46 and is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter. He had been unconscious for the past six days. His sugar levels had been fluctuating a lot, for which he had been admitted to a hospital in Lucknow. He was discharged from hospital a few days back, after more than a month.
Chandi, as he was affectionately called, was very serious about his work but that did not come in the way of his jovial nature.
