Bollywood villain Gavin Packard passes away
British origin Bollywood actor Gavin Packard passed away on May 18 after fighting a respiratory disorder for which he was being treated at a nursing centre in Vasai, Mumbai. His funeral was held on May 19, but no one from Bollywood attended it as the 50-plus actor had distanced himself from the industry in his last years. Back in the ’90s, Gavin played a baddie in many Bollywood films, of which, Sadak, Tridev, Karan Arjun and Mohra became blockbusters. But he was also personally associated with some actors. Gavin, a bodybuilding expert, had pushed Sanjay Dutt into weight-training. He also trained Suniel Shetty while they worked together in the producer actor’s initial films like Waqt Hamara Hai and Hum Hain Bemisaal. Gavin even trained Salman Khan’s bodyguard Shera in bodybuilding. RIP.
