Kher expressed his shock over the news of Kaushik’s passing in a previous tweet.
“While I am well aware of death’s finality, the thought that I would have to pen those words about my dear buddy Satish Kaushik never entered my mind. The end of 45 years of friendship. Without you, Satish, the world would be a very different place. AUM SHANTI, “A tweet from Kher.
