The action sequences in movies certainly thrill everyone. Witnessing their matinee idol in action fills excitement among fans. But if you are a fan of Salman Khan, here's some bad news for you. 

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan popularly dubbed Dabangg Khan is loved for his action thrillers. Be it his upcoming Tiger 3 or his action sequences in movies like Tere Naam or Radhe: The Most Wanted Bhai, he has been loved in this avatar. 

Well, fans are well aware that Salu never does his action sequences like several other actors. Filmmakers rope in his body doubles for the action sequences, who have close resemblance with the actor. 

Recently, one of the most popular body doubles of Salman, Sagar Pandey, passed away on Sept 30. Salman, taking to social media, expressed his deep condolences for the departed soul.

Salman shared his picture with Sagar and captioned it: "Dil se shukar adda kar raha hoon for being there with me . May your soul rest in peace brother Sagar. Thank u 🙏 #RIP #SagarPandey"

Sagar, who has worked in over 50 films as body double, suddenly collapsed while he was working at gym. The incident happened around 1.00 pm today. Sagar, aged about 50, has worked with Salman in movies including ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Tubelight’, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Dabangg 2’. 

As reported by a close friend of Sagar, two gym instructors took him to Suvidha Hospital after he had a heart attack at the gym. Following that, the doctors recommend transferring him to the Balasaheb Thackeray Trauma Center Hospital in Jogeshwari. However, the doctors declared him dead at around 2.00 pm. Sagar were a resident of Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh. 

The sudden demise of Sagar has left many in shock. While several fans of Salman expressed grief, many have even raised concerns that the action sequences of their matinee idol will certainly get affected after Sagar’s demise.
