Satish Kaushik’s untimely demise shook the entire nation. Bollywood poured its condolences and extended support to the deceased family.
Bollywood actor-director Satish Kaushik passed away at the age of 67 in Delhi on Wednesday. As per reports, the actor was going to Gurugram to meet someone. While he was travelling, his health deteriorated in the moving vehicle itself and he suffered a heart attack.
The BBC reported that he was taken to the hospital where the doctors declared him dead. Along with films, Satish Kaushik was also in the headlines for his personal life. Satish Kaushik was married to Shashi. But very few people know that Bollywood actress Neena Gupta resided in his heart. Satish Kaushik proposed to Neena Gupta for marriage.
When Satish Kaushik offered to marry pregnant Neena Gupta and pass Masaba off as their child, he said, “Don’t worry, if the child is born with dark skin, you can just say it’s mine and we’ll get married. Nobody will suspect a thing.” She told, “he was concerned about not letting her feel alone. At the end of the day, that’s what friends are for, right?” His proposal to marry her was a mix of humour, concern, respect, and support and that he told her, “Main hoon na, tu Chinta kyu karti Hai?” What a gem he was. Gupta remembers Satish Kaushik and prays for his wife, daughter Vanshika.
The untimely demise of the veteran actor has shocked the Hindi film industry, many passing their condolences on his unfortunate departure. Kaushik started his career in theatre and went on to act in Hindi cinema. He also directed several films.
His friend and colleague Anupam Kher wrote, “I know “death is the ultimate truth of this world!” But I never thought in my dreams that I would write this thing about my best friend Satish Kaushik while alive. Such a sudden full stop on a friendship of 45 years!! Life will NEVER be the same without you SATISH!”

“I have accepted my failures just like I accepted my success. Also, not measuring my career with my age gives me the enthusiasm of a 20-year-old towards my work,” said Satish Kaushik.
