Mumbai, Feb 14 (UNI) Veteran comedian Rajendra Nath's death was condoled by Bollywood stalwarts, who described the actor as having an 'inimitable style' that made millions burst into laughter.

Bollywood actor and filmmaker Randhir Kapoor told UNI that Rajendra Nath was closely related to him. ''I have been very close to him since childhood. We did a lot of films together and it is very sad as the man who made millions laugh is no more with us. He will be sorely missed.'' Indian Film Directors Association President Vinod Pande said.

''It is very sad even though in the past few years he was not much in circulation but his form of quirky comedy will be missed. He belonged to the golden era of Aga Saab and Johnny Walker, which was a curious mix of slapstick and flamboyance that seems to have vanished. Today, comedy has assumed another hue''.

The Vice-President of the Indian Film Directors Association B R Ishara said,''Rajendra Nath was a very fine actor and his passing away is a loss to the industry''.

''His brand of comedy will be missed as today the trend of filmmaking has changed, actors have changed and so has the business of filmmaking,'' Ishara said.
