“Life will never be the same without you, Satish”. This is what Anupam Kher said after losing his dear friend, Satish Kaushik. The director, 66, died due to an alleged heart attack. Now, Anupam Kher has shared a video message in memory of Satish Kaushik on Instagram. The actor spoke about their 45 years of friendship. He said, “The reason, today, I am here talking to you guys is because I need to overcome the sense of loss of my friend Satish Kaushik… It’s killing me.” Talking about their bond, he added, “Our friendship was deep. After so many years, it becomes a habit which you never want to lose. It’s tough because 45 years is quite a bit of time to be with somebody.”
Anupam Kher also recalled their days at the National School Of Drama. He added, “We saw our dreams together. We started off our journey together at the National School of Drama in the month of July 1975. We both came to Mumbai one after another…Worked hard to reach where we are today.” The actor said that he and Satish Kaushik used to get on a call daily.
Anupam Kher continued, “Right now, I am unable to concentrate. But as they say, you have to move on and I will have to do that too. This is what life teaches us.” Sharing the video message on Instagram, Anupam Kher wrote, “Letter to my friend!! My dearest Satish Kaushik. You will always be part of my life…But I need to move on… In order to keep your memory alive.”
