Veteran actor Viju Khote passes away at 77

Viju Khote is survived by elder sister and actor Shubha Khote.

The Hindi Film Industry has given us some of the most iconic characters which will be remembered forever. He has been unwell since quite some time. "He had multiple organ failure", actor Bhavana Balsavar, his niece, told Press Trust of India.

Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit: Unhappy to know in regards to the demise of one of many best actors #vijukhote ji. "Viju kutte aahe? ('Where is Viju?')" the veteran actor wrote.

Members and bodies of the industry mourned the actor's demise. "RIP Sir. My heartfelt condolences to the family", Ajay Devgn tweeted.

"#VijuKhote ji, rest in love! My condolences to his family", Abhishek Bachchan said.

Filmmaker Nila Madhab Panda said be it Kalia or Robert, the actor always made the audience laugh. "We will never forget you #VijuKhote", Panda tweeted.

As the affable Robert, the actor got a catchphrase that has left a strong pop-culture footprint: "Galti se mistake hogaya."He excelled in character roles through the years". Not only Hindi but Khote had also proved his mantle in Marathi cinema as well. On the popular tv show Zabaan Sambhalke, Khote played the role of Vitthal Bapurao Pote, a Maharashtrian who worked in nautanki and was trying to learn English.

In a career spanning nearly six decades, Viju worked in over 300 films, including "Phir Hera Pheri", "Andaz Apna Apna" from the modern era besides some television shows and ads.
