Veteran director/producer Harish Shah, who is best known for producing Mere Jeevan Saathi, starring Rajesh Khanna and Tanuja, passed away at the age of 76 on Tuesday morning in Mumbai.

He passed away today at 6 am. He was 76 years old. His funeral will take place today around 1 pm at Pawan Hans crematorium. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, very few people are allowed for the funeral. It is going to be only 2 or 3 of us to do his last rites."

Harish Shah has directed a number of Bollywood blockbusters, including Zalzala (1988), starring Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha, and Dhan Daulat (1980), starring Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh.
