Esmayeel Shroff has directed several blockbuster movies such as Ahista Ahista, Zid, Agar, God and Gun, Police Public, Majhdhaar, Dil Akhir Dil Hai, Bulundi, Nishchaiy, Suryaa, and Jhuta Sach. The filmmaker’s last movie as a director was Thoda Tum Badlo, Thoda Hum, released in 2004. In this film, Arya Babbar and Shriya Saran were in the lead roles.

Govinda was introduced by Esmayeel Shroff in the film industry. Love 86 was his maiden movie. Govinda mourned the loss of the filmmaker and said, “I’m deeply saddened. He was responsible for my lucrative career in the film industry. Uparwala unko jannat naseeb karaye (may God place his soul in heaven). May his soul rest in peace. He gave me work and showed a lot of faith in me as well. Once, he said that Govinda understands cinema. He played an immense role in making me Govinda from Govind. “

Padmini Kolhapure also paid tribute to the late film-maker. She called him a ‘very sensitive director’ with a “smiling face.” I did Thodisi Bewafaii and Ahista Ahista with him. Ahista Ahista is very close to my heart. He was a remarkable director, and his death is a huge loss. He will always be remembered for his brilliant work in the film industry.

Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit also paid tribute to Esmayeel Shroff. He tweeted on Thursday, “Sad to know about the demise of ace filmmaker Esmayeel Shroff ji… Had directed many hits, including Ahista Ahista, Bulandi, Thodi Si Bewafai, Surya, etc. It’s another big loss for the film industry. Heartfelt condolences to his family… “
