Dinesh Phadnis, the actor who portrayed the first Indian detective in the television series ‘C.I.D.’, has sadly passed away. He took his final breath on Monday at noon while receiving treatment at the hospital. He had accumulated 57 years of experience, and the Times of India published this press release.
Dinesh fell ill a few days ago and was subsequently admitted to Tunga Hospital in Mumbai, as reported by the media. Since then, he has been receiving support from a ventilator. He passed away during his treatment. It is expected that his funeral will be completed today.
It is widely known that Dinesh was taken to the hospital after experiencing a heart attack. However, Nayananda Shetty, another actor from CID, has contradicted this information, stating that it is inaccurate.
During an interview with Pinkvilla, the actor clarified that it was not a heart attack but rather his liver that had been harmed. Due to this, he was promptly admitted to Tunga Hospital. Dinesh initially fell ill due to an adverse reaction to a medication.
According to Dayanand Shetty, Dinesh was being treated for another illness. The medicines had adverse effects on Dinesh’s liver, resulting in damage.
Cautious use of the drug is recommended in this specific case. The CID campaign was initiated in 1997. Inspector Fredericks, also known as Freddy, was portrayed by Dinesh Fadnis in the television series from 1998 to 2018—the viewers of the television show liked his character.
CID was consistently ranked as one of the most popular shows on Indian television throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s.
