Kapoor, who had produced films like Woh 7 Din, Judai, Pukar, Hum Paanch and No Entry, suffered a cardiac arrest.”I’m at Surinderji’s house right now. He had gone for a walk in the evening. He came back, drank a glass of water and while he was untying the laces of his shoes, he suffered a heart attack and died on the spot,” Anees Bazmee, the director of Kapoor’s production venture No Entry, said. Kapoor was the president of the Film and Television Producers Guild of India from 1995 to 2001 and was also felicitated with the L.V. Prasad Phalke Award in 2009.
