Madhur Bhandarkar on Satish Kaushik’s demise: I met him just 15 days ago at the UP Summit; He was as energetic as ever – Exclusive | hindi movie news – Usky News

Satish Kaushik died on March 8 in Gurugram at the age of 66. After conducting the postmortem, his body will be brought to Mumbai. ETimes got in touch with Madhur Bhandarkar who shares a good rapport with the actor-filmmaker.
Sharing details of how he got the news of Satish’s demise, Madhur said, “I woke up early this morning and I just checked my WhatsApp. A friend of mine from Delhi messaged me that Satish Kaushik has passed away. I couldn’t believe it. I called him immediately and asked if it was some kind of joke. He said that he is serious and this news is true. I was in shock.

Elaborating further, he said, “Satish bhai has many memories. He has given us many memorable characters to remember, be it ‘Calendar’ from ‘Mr India’, ‘Pappu Pager’ from ‘Deewana Mastana’ and many more. I had met him just 15 days ago at the UP Summit. He was full of energy as always. He was telling me about ‘Kaagaz 2’. We wanted to work with each other for the longest time. I had approached him for ‘India Lockdown’ but due to dates we could not be together. And something similar happened during ‘Bubli Bouncer’. He told me that it has not happened twice but it should happen for the third time. I assured him that we would break the estrangement for the third time and work together soon.
The filmmaker said that Sathish greatly appreciates both his films and is sad that he could not be a part of them. “We both had mutual admiration for each other. We have met many times in the past at events, parties and movie screenings. We had blasted the UP summit as well.

He said, “It is very difficult for me to make sense of this whole thing. I just saw his twitter post where he is playing Holi with Javed Akhtar and others. He played Holi here in Mumbai and then went to Delhi to meet his friend.” Gone and then this happened.

“We will greatly miss Satish Bhai as a director, actor and a person. He had a great personality and was a versatile actor who had millions of fans”, he concluded.
