The 78-year-old had complained of discomfort while watching TV at their residence after which he was rushed to a nearby hospital. However, he was declared dead.


Jani, Usha's second husband, had a background in tea plantations. They first met at the iconic Trincas in the early 1970s. Usha previously married the late Ramu.
