Veteran actor and filmmaker Satish Kaushik – who essayed loveable characters like “Calendar” in Mr. India and “Pappu Pager” in Deewana Mastana – passed away in Mumbai on Thursday morning.
Kausik was 66. He is survived by wife and daughter.
Kaushik was an alumnus of National School of Drama, New Delhi and Film and Television Institute of India, Pune.
He wore many hats – he was a director, producer, theatre actor, film actor, comedian and screenwriter.
Kaushik’s NSD batchmate and family friend Anupam Kher broke the news of his death.
“I know that death is the ultimate truth of this world! But I had not thought even in my wildest dreams that I would write this thing about my best friend someday. Such a sudden full stop to a friendship of 45 years!! Life will never be the same without you Satish!,” Kher said.
