"I knew Rajesh for more than 40 years. It's extremely sad and a huge loss to the industry," his friend Vishnu Sharma told IANS.

Rajesh Vivek was a theater actor and has starred in many Bollywood movies including 'Swades' where he was seen playing the role of a postmaster. During the beginning of his career he established his mark in B-town by playing villain in Veerana and Joshilay.
