Actor Sandeep Nahar’s suicide has plunged the industry into gloom. Cruel fate has brought an untimely end to a talented life. Sandeep who was seen in the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, followed by the Akshay Kumar-led ‘Kesari’ and then in the Sonakshi Sinha movie ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’ died allegedly by suicide, last evening (Monday, February 15). The actor, before his demise, had posted a long post along with video on his Facebook page, in which he spoke about ending his life.
This morning, ETimes spoke to Anupam Kher who was Sandeep’s co-actor in the Dhoni biopic. Kher said that he was extremely shocked and sad when he learned about Sandeep this morning. “I didn’t know about it last night, but I read about him a few hours back and immediately connected his presence in ‘M S Dhoni:The Untold Story’.”
Rewinding on his interactions with Sandeep, Anupam Kher who played Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in the biopic, remarked, “Sandeep was a happy-go-lucky guy. I met him on the sets of that film only. I had about two-three scenes with him. He had more scenes with other actors in the film but he was undoubtedly a good actor.”
Last night, ETimes brought you the reaction of Shilpi Dasgupta who directed the 2019 film ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’. “Sandeep was very active on Facebook. Whenever there was a good role or function, he would always message. Whenever there was an opportunity to greet, he would do that. He was a very talented and devoted actor, plus a fantastic gentleman who was always eager to help. I am really taken aback (by his sudden demise and his drastic step),” Shilpi had said.
