The Indian Express report said Ashiesh Roy's staff confirmed the news about the actor's death.

The staff said that Roy collapsed around 3:45 am. He had a kidney ailment and was undergoing dialysis. His health had improved slightly in the last few weeks.

"His sister will arrive from Kolkata in the evening. A call on funeral will be then taken,” the staff member was quoted as saying.

Roy also complained of breathlessness before collapsing in the wee hours of Tuesday.

A report by The Times of India mentioned Senior Joint Secretary of CINTAA Amit Behl saying that he was informed about Roy's death by director Arvind Babbal.

Actress Tina Ghai said, “We are grief-stricken. We have activated the Zonal heads at CINTAA. There is a problem in acquiring the death certificate too as he passed away at home."

The report quoted the security guard of Pataliputra building in Jogeshwari, Mumbai where Ashiesh was residing saying the servant informed him that Ashiesh had a couple of hiccups and immediately collapsed. The actor was reportedly quite okay on Monday and he was supposed to undergo dialysis today (Tuesday).
