Casting director-producer Seher Latif breathed her last on Monday (June 7). Seher was in her early 40s and she died due to cardiac arrest. The news of her sudden demise came as a huge shock to the film fraternity. Talking about her death, filmmaker Neeraj Udhwani told PTI, “There was some infection, which caused renal failure. She was admitted last weekend. She was on antibiotics and was recovering. But today she suffered a cardiac arrest and suddenly it was all over.”

Seher had produced the Swara Bhasker starrer series Bhaag Beanie Bhaag. As a casting director, she has films like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Million Dollar Arm, The Lunchbox, Shakuntala Devi and Durgamati: The Myth to her credit. Anurag Kashyap, Swara Bhasker, Ritesh Batra and several other celebs took to their social media handles to pay heartfelt tribute to Seher.


The Lunchbox actress Nimrat Kaur mourning the demise of the casting director 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(sic).”

The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra is still finding it difficult to digest this news. “I don’t believe it, unfair parting with a kind soul and real friend. Goodbye Seher, I hope there is another side(sic),” he tweeted.

Swara Bhasker sharing an old video of Seher wrote, Seher, I teased you ‘coz I didn’t know how to tell you how much I like you- for ur warmth, for ur cheer, for ur gentle goodness, for ur kindness to strugglers, for ur fun, for ur beliefs, for standing up for me, for unwittingly helping me out of a dark place. I joked with u because I didn’t know how else to express my deep fondness & affection for u. For the warmth & good spirits u brought to your work & mine.. I wish we had followed through on the catch up sessions we planned. I wish I had called instead of texting. 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 #SeherAlyLatif Not yet, not yet(sic).”

Anurag Kashyap posted a picture of Seher on his Instagram stories and wrote, “Rest in peace.”

Rajkummar Rao also sharing a picture of the late casting director on his Instagram stories wrote, “Rest in peace#SeherLatif.”
