Actor Satish Kaul, who was best known for playing Lord Indra in the iconic show, Mahabharat has passed away at the age of 73 due to COVID-19.
Incidentally, Kaul almost cried while suffering a financial crisis making it difficult to end basic financial needs. Kaul worked in over 300 Punjabi and Hindi films and shows over the years.
Producer and actor Preeti Sapru confirmed the same with ETimes TV saying, "He had fever three days ago and then the nurse who was taking care of him got his COVID-19 test done and he was tested positive. I am terribly sad as the nurse had called me but I have set up a camp in my society for COVID tests. We were testing some 600 people for coronavirus and I was very busy with it and couldn’t take the call. Now, I am feeling very bad about it. The nurse who was taking care of him would regularly call me up and make me speak to him and this time I just couldn’t take her call. I am feeling very bad maybe he wanted to talk to me. But our society is in a bad state because there are close to 30 COVID cases and we are trying to control that. He passed today in the afternoon around 2 PM.”
May his soul rest in peace.
