His nephew Navin earlier shared that Sawan had ‘several health ailments’ and his lungs have been weak. “He has several health ailments. He is critical. We got him admitted to Kokilaben Ambani hospital yesterday and he is in the ICU. His lungs are weak too because of old-age. Doctors are treating him, but he is not responding much and is not recovering properly. So we are all praying for him,” he had shared.
Tak’s final directorial was the 2006 Salman Khan movie Saawan… The Love Season. His first venture as a producer was the 1967 movie Naunihal, which obtained a particular point out on the National Film Awards.

In an earlier dialog with The Hindu, Sawan Kumar Tak shared that he made his first movie Naunihal with a mortgage of Rs 25,000 that he took from a member of the family. “I came to Mumbai from Jaipur in 1965 to become an actor. I tried my luck at two-three studios. When I didn’t get a break, I decided to start from the top. I requested my sister to lend Rs 25,000 to produce a film. I had an idea about an orphan whose principal tells him that he has a relative in the form of Pandit Nehru. My sisters refused but my brother-in-law agreed. So I produced Naunihal,” he had mentioned.
