Bindumadhav met with an unfortunate accident on April 20, 1996. He died at the age of 42. He was returning from a holiday in Lonavala accompanied by his wife Madhavi, son Nihal, daughter Neha, two bodyguards and his driver.

Affectionately known as ‘Binda’, he had never shown an inclination to join active politics. Initially he started his own video company but later switched to producing feature films. He came into the limelight for his maiden Hindi venture ‘Agnishakshi’ starring Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala and Nana Patekar earning him rave reviews.
