Actor Faraaz Khan, who was hospitalised in Bengaluru since 8 October, has passed away, confirmed actor-producer Pooja Bhatt on Wednesday.

Bhatt tweeted her condolences on social media

Khan, son of late Bollywood actor Yusuf Khan, was in the hospital where he was being treated for a brain disease. His family had previously said the actor had been suffering from a cough and an infection in his chest for nearly a year, which had recently aggravated.

For his treatment, the actor's family and friends sought financial aid through a public fundraiser. Post admission, it was found out that the actor who had been suffering from a cough and chest infection had suffered three consecutive seizures due to a herpes infection in his brain.

Kashmera Shah had later revealed that his medical bills had been cleared by Salman Khan.

Khan had debuted in Bollywood with the 1996 film Fareb and later acted alongside Rani Mukerji in Mehndi. He was also seen in a few television shows like Ssshhhh...Koi Hai, Raat Hone Ko Hai and Sinndoor Tere Naam Ka.
