Veteran producer Raaj Grover (in centre in picture above) passed away on 4th June in Old Bridge, New Jersey (USA). He was 87. He died peacefully in his sleep. His health had been fine.

Raaj had shifted to the USA many years back. He kept coming to India on short trips to keep in touch with his friends in the film industry.

A very jovial person, Raaj Grover’s trademark laughter, after almost every sentence he spoke, was legendary. He used to invariably say, “Grover never over.” He is survived by his wife and children.

Raaj had produced Taaqat, starring Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi and Raakhee. He had also co-produced Arya with Tirlok Malik. He had produced Thikana, starring Anil Kapoor, Amrita Singh and Smita Patil, jointly with Paul Arora and V.B. Soni. He had recently written a book, The Legends Of Bollywood.
