Legendary radio personality Ameen Sayani, known for his iconic voice, passed away at the age of 91. His son Rajil Sayani confirmed that Sayani suffered a heart attack late Tuesday night, leading to his demise.

Sayani Ji leaves a void behind that will be difficult to fill. His golden legacy makes him immortal. My sincerest condolences to his near and dear ones and millions of admirers. Om Shanti."

President Droupadi Murmu also mourned the loss, remembering Sayani's contribution to Indian broadcasting. "I am saddened to learn that Fali Nariman, a titan among legal luminaries, is no more.

He served the nation in various roles, including as a member of the Rajya Sabha, with equal dedication," the President wrote.
