Satish was one of them since we worked together in ‘Ram Lakhan’. I met him last month. We talked about the film by Karan Razdan about the premiere of this film. Satish was very excited as usual. He was talking about his next film, the next film he’s going to direct. He was a great artist, whether on stage, on the big screen, on the small screen or writing. He was excellent at everything he did.”
