Bollywood d.p. Bobby Singh died Dec. 25 from an asthma attack while on holiday in Goa. He was 38.
Singh, who shot such niche hits as “Dirty Picture” and UTV’s “Life in a Metro,” may have had a reaction to seafood in his lunch, according to reports.
The lenser had recently been working on two films, Vikas Behl’s “Queen” and Neeraj Pandey’s “Special Chabbis.” While principal photography is complete on “Chabbis,” Behl’s Kangna Ranaut-toplined “Queen” was not done. It is unclear whether another cinematographer will be hired.
Singh started his career as an assistant cameraman on 1989’s “Shehzaade” and also worked on Bollywood blockbuster “Ghajini.”
He carved out a career as a d.p. beginning with 2006’s “Gangster.” He had about a dozen credits.
Survivors include his wife, Radhika, and a son.
