According to family sources, the actor suffered a heart attack at around 12:30 AM while he was at his residence in Four Bungalows, Andheri.
He will be cremated on Friday at Yaari Road Shamshaaan Bhoomi around 6pm. Inder worked in several films and starred alongside Salman in Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye, Tumko Na Bhool Paayenge and Wanted.
He had also appeared in Ekta Kapoor’s long-running TV soap Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi as Mihir Virani.
