The actor’s close friend Karan Singh Chhabra, said the MTV star “was healthy and a satisfied person.”

“It is most painful for me to lose him like this. He was enjoying and having fun, I am really clueless as to how this happened,” Karan told India TV News.

Another close friend, Mohammad Al Mahmoodi, claimed that the star was into “fitness.”

“He was perfectly healthy. In fact, he was very much concerned about his health and fitness,” he explained.

Mohammad said he “couldn’t understand how this happened,” adding: “It was difficult for me to accept the news.

“He was a traveler and explorer but who knew he would travel to heaven so soon. I am really missing him a lot.”

LOVE SCHOOL

Jagnoor found fame when he was cast in seasons one and two of MTV’s Love School.

The reality show followed the real-life relationships of young Indian couples.

In season one, Jagnoor struggled through a rocky relationship with his then-girlfriend Manisha, but the couple ended up calling it quits.

In the second season, he entered a relationship with a woman named Monica, but their love also fizzled out.

SHOCKING LOSS

Just days before his death, Jagnoor shared his final post to Instagram, a video compilation of his time at the Egyptian pyramids.

He was seen posing in front of one of the seven wonders, riding a camel, and running through the desert.

He captioned his post: “A dream come true when I visited the great pyramids of Giza. Another place ticked off my bucket list.” 

Fans and friends filled the comments with their condolences, with one writing: “extremely shocking … RIP brother … life is unpredictable.”

A second penned: “RIP MY FRIEND. Gone too soon…”

“May his soul rest in peace,” a third added, while a fourth agreed: “Rip brother you will be missed a lot.”

Jagnoor was born in 1981 in India to a Hindu family and worked heavily in Indian beauty pageants.

The MTV star coached contestants on their runway walks and helped them prepare for the competition.

In his Instagram bio, Jagnoor revealed that he previously survived an accident so that he could “change the world.”

An avid traveler, the TV personality revealed that he had been to 11 countries before the time of his death.
