Bollywood casting director and producer Seher Aly Latif has passed away. She was 40. 

Seher succumbed to a cardiac arrest in a Mumbai hospital on Monday, reports state. She had worked as a casting director on The Lunchbox, Monsoon Shootout, Durgamati and others. She had co-produced the Swara Bhasker-starrer Netflix series, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag

"Really sad to hear the demise of an outstanding Casting Director & a really amazing friend. Working with her was always fun. Rest in Peace Seher Latif," Nawazuddin Siddiqui tweeted. 

“One of the kindest, most loving people Mumbai gifted my life with. Still trying to process this unreal news... Travel on into the light my dearest, sweetest Seher. The unpredictable, ghastly shortness of life remains baffling... Await to meet you on the other side," tweeted The Lunchbox star Nimrat Kaur.

Sharing an old video with Seher, Swara Bhasker wrote, “Seher, I teased you because I didn't know how to tell you how much I like you- for your warmth, for your cheer, for your gentle goodness, for your kindness to strugglers, for your fun, for your beliefs, for standing up for me, for unwittingly helping me out of a dark place. I wish we'd met this last month Seher. I wish I'd referred to u as ‘Seth ji'... If we are wishing, what I really wish is this cruel accident of fate be reversed and you threaten not to sign my cheques again. I can't say goodbye Seher Aly Latif... Not yet, not yet…”

"We are deeply saddened by the untimely demise of Ms. Seher Latif. This is an irreplaceable loss for the Indian Film Industry. Our condolences are with her friends and family. May she rest in peace," read a post by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment.
