Renowned fashion photographer and father of actress Antara Mali, was found walking the streets of Mumbai in a decrepit condition. He was found in Versova by Mink Brar, who like many in Bollywood, had her portfolio created by this man.
Clad in nothing but a t-shirt and covered with dirt, Mink still recognized him. She and her brother managed to clothe him, feed him but were unable to make any progress with the staccato photographer. As Mali stayed unresponsive, Mink called Salman Khan who immediately swung into action and sent a car for him with attendants. It was later confirmed that Mali had been taken to his home in Lonavla.
The photographer having gone through a bad spell, sold his studio and turned a recluse. Daughter Antara Mali, it has been reported, has not responded to the issue nor has she taken a step towards reaching out to her father.
Jagdish Mali is famous for his portraits of Rekha, Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji among others.
