Arun Dutt, son of legendary Hindi film actor-director Guru Dutt, passed away in a hospital here due to a kidney ailment, a family source said on Sunday.

Arun, 58, passed away on Saturday and is survived by wife and two daughters.

A recluse, Arun was praised for his untiring efforts to keep his famous father’s legacy alive by organising Guru Dutt film festivals in India and abroad.

The film festival revived interest of subsequent generations in the movie icon, who made and directed immortal films such as Pyasa and Kagaz ke Phool

Arun, who held all rights of his father’s work, had carried out a project for digitisation of his films to preserve them for posterity and also floated a dance and acting academy in the legendary director’s memory.
