‘Kundan and I were friends since col­lege’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Rishabh Suri

Ac­tor Satish Shah is among the most prom­i­nent faces in Bol­ly­wood, hav­ing been a part of al­most a 100 odd films.

But Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (1983) will al­ways be close to his heart, pri­mar­ily be­cause he was closely associated with the di­rec­tor of the film, Kundan Shah, who passed away in his sleep on Oc­to­ber 7 due to a car­diac ar­rest.

“He was a great friend! We all made the film Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron to­gether, we didn’t share the re­la­tion­ship of just a di­rec­tor and an ac­tor,” says Satish. Their friend­ship was not just pro­fes­sional. Satish and Kundan were col­lege bud­dies. “Kundan was my batch­mate in Film and Tele­vi­sion In­sti­tute of In­dia (FTII). But I was not just in his first fea­ture film—I was there in his first stu­dent film, his first ad film and his first tele­vi­sion show as well! So, you can un­der­stand what kind of an as­so­ci­a­tion we shared. He was a very un­der­stated, sim­ple guy. It’s a great loss.”
