According to his close friend and colleague Anupam Kher, an actor and filmmaker named Satish Kaushik died early Thursday morning after having a heart attack. He was 66.
Kher says that Kaushik was at a friend’s house in Delhi when he said he was feeling sick.
“He felt uncomfortable, so he told the driver to take him to the hospital. On the way, around 1 a.m., he had a heart attack,” Kher told PTI.
Kher tweeted earlier that Kaushik’s sudden death saddened him.
“I know that death is the ultimate truth, but I never thought I’d have to write that about my best friend, Satish Kaushik. 45 years of friendship came to an abrupt end. Without you, Satish, life will never be the same. Om Shanti, “Kher sent tweets.
