One user wrote, “Anupam and Satish both always talked about how their friendships made it through everything and were always proud of having a nearly 40 year friendship and how proud they were of each other and didn’t hesitate to talk about their lows. Even if they weren’t in interviews together they always gave each other a shout out. Boney and Archana Puran Singh also talked a lot about their friendships with Satish and working with him. Seeing Anil and Anupam breaking down really sounds like they all have a very good friendship together. Especially since they all worked together so much.”
Another user wrote,“Never seen anil like this….

Talking to ANI, Anupam Kher said, “Rather than mourning about someone’s death, we should celebrate their life. About 11 years ago, my father passed away and my parents were married for 59 years, then I planned to celebrate my father’ life, so that my mother can spend rest of her life happily. That way this ritual started. Satish and I have been friends for almost 48 years and will continue to be.”
On March 8, the whole country was left shocked when Satish Kaushik’s death surfaced on social media. As per reports, he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest in New Delhi.
