Actor Rajesh Vivek, who was part of Bollywood for more than two decades, succumbed to a heart attack in Hyderabad on Thursday, a close friend of his said. He was 66.

"I knew Rajesh for more than 40 years. It's extremely sad and a huge loss to the industry," his friend Vishnu Sharma told IANS.

Rajesh, known for his role of the astrologer Guran in the Aamir Khan-starrer Lagaan, and as the postman in Shah Rukh Khan's Swades, was shooting in Hyderabad for a film when he suffered a massive heart attack.

"He passed away at around 3 o'clock in the afternoon," Vishnu Sharma said.

His last rites will be performed in Mumbai on Friday.
