Another attendee at the event, Yashpal Sharma, published a comment about it on Instagram.
“Today, I was in Mumbai for this programme… Everything seemed to be going well. There were hundreds of artists there, but just after accepting the prize, Shahnawaz, one of our favourite artists, suffered an attack.
“With the support of the people, the entire programme came to a halt, and the doctor picked him up and rushed him to the nearest hospital, Kokilaben, but no one could save him, and he died… May his spirit rest in peace and provide courage to his family “Yashpal Sharma wrote.
