IndiaGlitz [Saturday, February 04, 2012]

Filmmaker Raj Kanwar, who passed away yesterday following kidney transplant complications, is known for giving notable breaks to several B-town stars in the initial stages of their careers. While Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra can boast about their launch pad with Kanwar's films, many have fond memories of the noted late producer-director-screenwriter.

Quoted Abhishek Bachchan on his micro-blogging site - "Terribly saddened by the passing of Raj Kanwar. Was the 1st person to sign me after Refuggee. He made Aishwarya and my 1st film together. Dhai Akshar Prem Ke. Was a lovely man, always happy, smiling and joking. Have wonderful wonderful memories of him. Now no more."

While Khiladi Akshay Kumar who worked under Kanwar in 'Humko Deewana Kar Gaye' wrote, "Deeply saddened to know, Raj Kanwar, one of our finest directors passed away. He'd directed two of my personal favourite films of my career, Andaaz & Humko Deewana Kar Gaye. My thoughts & prayers with his family. RIP." As a matter of fact, Kanwar's son Abhay featured alongside Akshay in the film, at a time when Abhay was ten.
