Ameen Sayani suffered a heart attack on Tuesday night and was taken to a hospital but could not be saved.

"He passed away at around 7:00pm of heart attack at the HN Reliance hospital," Rajil Sayani told Press Trust of India.

Ameen Sayani, whose introduction ’Namaskar bhaiyon aur behno, main aapka dost Ameen Sayani bol raha hoon’ on Radio Ceylon still evokes strong nostalgia.

He was born in Mumbai in a multilingual family on December 21, 1932.
