Satish Kaushik’s Manager Reveals About The Actor’s Last Words
In a conversation with Times of India, Satish’s manager Santosh Rai shared that there were no signs of heartburn or any discomfort during dinner. However, around 12:00 am, Satish called him and told him that he was having difficulty breathing and that’s when he was taken to the hospital. Santosh even revealed the last words of the actor and they were “Santosh, please save me, I don’t want to die.” I want to live for Vanshika (his daughter from him). Mujhe lagta hai principal nahi bachunga. Shashi aur Vanshika ka khayyal rakhna. And when they got to the hospital, Satish was unconscious.
Santosh called Anupam Kher that night
Talking about who Santosh called that night, he said: ‘I called the sons of Satishji’s brothers in Mumbai and told them everything. Their families arrived at the Satish ji residence at 2:30 am. Apparently, Satish ji’s wife was informed. Also, I called Anupam Kher ji. Satish ji used to tell me that if anything happens to him or any request is made to him, he should first call Anupam ji and Anil Kapoor ji. My call to Anupam ji went unanswered. Obviously, he must have been fast asleep. So, I informed the worker about it and told her to inform Anupam ji anyway. And, Anupam ji soon called again. Anupam ji and Boney Kapoor ji rushed to Satish ji’s residence and were there in just a few minutes. They stayed until the next day. Both Anupam and Boney were very, very close to Satish ji.
