In an interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Anurag said, “He was one of my closest friends and we knew each other since our struggling days. From my TV show to short-films to features, I worked with him quite often as he was a terrific actor. I was aware of his illness and we knew that his health was fast deteriorating.”
“We were all there for him and it’s truly tragic that he had to depart so soon. Our priority now is to take care of his 9-yearold son,” he added.
