Producer Anil Naidu, partner of R. Balki and Gauri Shinde in their production banner, Hope Production, passed away on 28th October in Bombay following a heart attack. He was otherwise hale and hearty and the end was as sudden as it was shocking. Anil was in his mid-fifties.

Before turning a producer, Anil was an editor and an ad filmmaker and a brilliant one at that. He won the National Award for Best Editing. Anil had made hundreds of commercials. When R. Balki and wife Gauri Shinde started their own production banner, Hope Production, they took Anil on board with them. In fact, Anil turned a producer for Balki because he used to respect him so much. In this way, Anil co-produced Shamitabh, Ki And Ka, Pad Man, Dear Zindagi and Mission Mangal with Balki and Gauri. He had edited Balki’s Paa. An extremely good human being, Naidu won the hearts of all those he came in contact with. R. Balki had gone to Nasik to immerse Anil’s ashes into the river yesterday (29th October) and was too distraught to speak when Information called him. Said Gauri in a WhatsApp message, “We are gutted, we are gutted, there is no Hope without him. He was not just a producer but a brother, our family. We feel orphaned without him.”

According to producer Pravesh Sippy, who was a very close friend of Anil, “During the lockdown, Anil was probably the only person with whom I used to chat at least twice or thrice a week, sometimes for an hour a day. He had no vices but sadly, he went away too soon.” Anil is survived by his daughter whom he used to dote on. Recalled Pravesh, “His daughter meant the world to him. If there was pressing professional work on the one hand and something to be done for his daughter, Anil would first attend to his daughter’s work and only then move on to his professional commitment.” Those who’ve seen the bond Balki and Anil shared, would unhesitatingly say that they were more than brothers and completely in synch with one another.


  1. Indeed very shocking and sad. When his elder brother Sunil called me in the morning of a fateful day, I couldn’t believe. He was almost ten years younger to us, and not only that, he was very jovial person. Never seen him stressed. Our entire Evergreen team is shocked. He use to be busy most of the time because of his profession but whenever we use to meet, it use to be a blast. May God 🙏 rest his soul in peace.

  6. Yet another issue is that video games are generally serious in nature with the key focus on mastering rather than leisure. Although, it comes with an entertainment feature to keep children engaged, each one game is often designed to work on a specific expertise or course, such as math concepts or scientific research.

  10. לבילוי עם נערות ליווי יש הרבה מאוד יתרונות, מה שהופך אותו לטרנד הבילוי החדש של הגברים בישראל. זהו בילוי אשר יכול להתאים לגברים אשר סובלים מחוסר ניסיון עם נשים. אל תזלזלו בחוסר ניסיון, זה יכול לפגוע בביטחון העצמי ולהקשות על גברים ליצור קשר עם בנות המין השני. אך לא רק גברים חסרי ניסיון, גם גברים אשר רוצים איזה בילוי ספונטני מעכשיו לעכשיו יכולים ליהנות מבילוי עם נערת ליווי. יתרון נוסף של הנערות הוא שהן מספקות מפלט חם ומרגיע עבור גברים נשואים שלא מקבלים בבית את מה שהם צריכים. כאשר הנישואין הופכים להיות מערכת של חובות ולחצים צריך לצאת ולהשתחרר קצת.
