Castro was one of the world’s longest-serving and most iconic leaders. He has died aged 90.

“What a day for history buffs! #Fidel #Castro is dead! A man who literally toyed with 11 US presidents... Loved and hated equally! #Cuba,” Siddharth posted on Twitter.

Bhandarkar wrote, “Death of Fidel Castro marks the end of an important era in Cuban history. An influential and a revolutionary leader. RIP.”

Mehta added: “Almost travelled to Havana. Visa issues made me change plans. Wish I’d made it before the passing away of Fidel Castro.”

“Whether you agreed or disagreed with Castro you couldn’t help be mesmerised with his aura. A light is extinguished.  Fidel Castro. RIP,” fFilmmaker Nikkhil Advani tweeted.
