  MUMBAI: Film editor Ajay Sharma, known for his work on films like “Ludo” and “Jagga Jasoos”, passed away on Wednesday due to COVID-19 complications at a government hospital in New Delhi, sources said.

  He was in his late 30s.

  ”He was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was in the ICU for the last two weeks. He breathed his last between 1-2 am today at Rajeev Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi,” a source close to Sharma told PTI.

  He is survived by his wife and a four-year-old son.

  After working as an associate editor on features like “Barfi!”, “Kai Po Che!” and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, Sharma worked as an editor in the Irrfan Khan-starrer “Karwaan”, “Ludo” and 2020’s Amazon Prime Video series “Bandish Bandits”.

  He made his directorial debut with the short film “Jolly 1995”, which is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.

  Sharma was working on the upcoming sports drama “Rashmi Rocket”, starring Taapsee Pannu.

  Many film personalities took to social media to shared condolence messages on his demise.
