Having hailed from a filmi family, whose roots were embedded in the entertainment industry since 1947, Rajjat contributed immensely to further expand their family business. Rajshri media credits itself on producing some of the best TV shows and delivering some really good family content for the audience. Rajjat himself created a path breaking progress in the digital medium for Rajshri. It is quite sad to learn about this sudden death at a very young age. We pray his soul rests in peace.
