"He died in his sleep early in the morning," a Shah relative told IANS.
According to writer-actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik, who wrote dialogues for "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro" and acted in it, Shah suffered a cardiac arrest.
Shah, who also gave the industry some much-loved television shows like "Nukkad" and "Wagle Ki Duniya", would have turned 70 on October 19.
Shah also directed popular film, 'Kya Kehna' starring Preity Zinta, Saif Ali Khan and Chandrachur Singh.
May god rest Kundan Shah's soul in peace.
