The very sad news about a 15-YO young actor Rahul Koli’s demise is spreading and saddening the internet. The young talent was a part of India’s official Oscar entry Gujarati film; Chhello Show (Last Film Show). He played the character of Manu in the film but unfortunately is no longer with us.
The young talent left the world days before the awaited theatrical release of Chhello Show. Chhello Show aka Last Film Show, is India’s official entry for the best international feature film category at the 95th Academy Awards.
As per a Times Of India report, Rahul Kohli succumbed to leukemia after undergoing treatment for the last four months. The Chhello Show actor reportedly first developed a low-grade fever which was ever present despite multiple treatments. He was then taken to Jamnagar for treatment before being hospitalized in Ahmedabad.
Recalling one of his last interactions with his eldest child, Rahul’s father Ramu Koli told TOI, “On Sunday, October 2, he had his breakfast and then after bouts of fever in the following hours, Rahul vomited blood thrice and just like that my child was no more. Our family is devastated, But we will watch his ‘last film show’ (Chhello Show) together on the release day of October 14 after we perform his final purification rituals.”
The father of the late young actor also continued to say, “We are poor, but Rahul’s dream meant everything to us. We had to sell our rickshaw for Rahul’s treatment, but when the film crew realized they got the rickshaw back for us.”
Chhello Show director Pan Nalin told TOI that the news was devastating for him and all associated with the film. He said, “We have been with the family looking after Rahul for weeks but in the end, he could not be saved.”
