Actor Anil Kapoor on Thursday offered his heartfelt condolences over the demise of his close friend and late veteran actor-director Satish Kaushik.
Taking to Instagram, Anil dropped a couple of pictures with Satish along with a long note.
Sharing the pictures, he wrote, “The Laurels of the industry have lost their Hardy…the Three Musketeers have lost the most talented, generous and loving Musketeer and I have lost my younger brother…gone too soon…I love you Satish.”
Anil and Satish have shared a great bond on and off the screen.
The duo has worked in films like ‘Mr. India’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai’, ‘Gharwali Baharwali’ and many more.
Anil’s son and actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor penned down a long emotional note, “I Got a call late last night from my mother with the terrible news of Satish sirs passing it was a surreal moment one of those where every thing you’re obsessing over loses relevance and your perspective changes in a split second. I started to think about a lot of things , I thought about how people come into your life for a reason when you least expect them to they teach you great things they teach you about humility and about undying passion you listen to them talk about the years gone by with love and nostalgia when I would listen to these pieces of life from someone like Satish ji all my anxieties about where I am and where I’m going would melt away they would reassure me that if your heart is in the right place and if you truly love creating everything eventually works out the way it’s supposed to in the end.”
Harsh Varrdhan and the late actor have worked in Raj Singh Chaudhary’s directorial ‘Thar’.
He added, “Satish Ji became a part of our film Thar because of my Father he really felt strongly about having him be a part of it, their relationship in the film became one of the undeniable highlights of the film but that’s for people to see and cherish forever it will never die much like their friendship in real life , this made me think about the movies and the magic of what we do and how blessed we are to actually be able to do it , people often sit behind their computers and throw profanities at us , I wish one day I could take those people into the rooms where over conversations these dreams are talked about and they seem so far fetched I wish I could take these people to our sets where veterans and young people create, equally hungry passionate and full of love and dreams.. it would melt anyones heart. We are only able to do what we do because these legends have enabled us with their terrific work sacrifice and determination. I am eternally blessed that Satish ji was part of thar my first film as producer i will never forget all the time spent together and the loving exchanges.. Rip Satish ji.”
Sonam Kapoor also extended condolence and dropped a picture of her father with Satish on Insta story.
She wrote, “You will always be family to me Satish Uncle…Still can’t believe you’re not with us anymore. May you rest in peace knowing that you left behind so much love and joy in this world.”
