Bollywood and Film industry is mourning the loss of director, producer and Mandira Bedi’s husband Raj Kaushal’s untimely demise. As per reports he succumbed to a heart attack this morning leaving behind his wife and two kids. However, the cause of death is not concrete as there is no official announcement from the family’s side on the cause of death. Some portals are also quoting cardiac arrest to be the reason behind Raj Kaushal’s sudden death. This is indeed sad news for Kaushal and Bedi families.
If sources are to be believed, he suffered a heart attack early in the morning. Before the family members could analyse his condition and get medical help, he was gone. This is indeed shocking news and we pray to God to give strength to the families to bear this loss.
Here’s how Industry people have reacted to this sad news.

What Causes Heart Attack?
Here are some of the possible reasons why a heart attack occurs:
Coronary heart disease- CHD is one of the major causes of heart attacks wherein the arteries supplying blood to the heart get clogged due to deposits of cholesterol, also known as, plaque. This affects blood supply and increases pressure on the heart which leads to heart attack. Obesity, high cholesterol, smoking are some of the risk factors that increase the risk of a heart attack in a person.
Hypoxia or lack of oxygen- This is the second most common cause of heart attacks. When the lungs are ill-functioning, the oxygen isn’t filtered and contains traces of carbon monoxide that reaches the heart through blood. This causes damage to heart muscles and triggers heart attacks.
Drug abuse- There are various drugs as well as tobacco whose consumption causes artery blockage that leads to heart attack. It restricts blood supply to the heart thereby affecting heart functions.
Stress- Many people experience mini heart attacks due to excessive stress. This might not be a prominent cause of heart attack but it is one of the possible causes.
Heart attacks have become quite common these days owing to sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary habits. These compromise heart health and increase the risk of heart diseases including heart attacks and cardiac arrest.
