English term or phrase: Drop Dead
HI, I am translating an English novel in Urdu in which this expression has been used only too often. I need an equivalent expression in Urdu which expresses the same. I dont want the literal meaning.

Explanation:
It really depends on the context and who is saying, but you can use any of the famous urdu bad-dua to replace this. e.g. mardood, mar ja kambakht, keeRhe parheN. You may know more than me. ;-)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Kashif , Thanks a lot for your prompt answer. I do happen to know all this terms that you have written. But I am sorry they dont click to me as the perfect alternative to this phrase. I asked here in sheer desperation in hope of getting something which didnt occur to me. Thanks anyways

Asker: Hi Kashif, This term has been used often in the text I am translating but I am perplexed at a point where theres nothing else to support it. Like theres this couple having a conflict. She goes to his office to pick a fight but after talking to him she is so disgusted , she leaves . Says nothing else just "Drop Dead Steve!" so I wanted something appropiate.
