On the sudden demise of Satish Kaushik, celebs poured their condolences on him. Actress Neena Gupta was also one of those who expressed her condolence for him. If we look at their friendship history, Satish Kaushik and Neena Gupta have shared a long one.
The actress shared in her autobiography ‘Sach Kahun Toh’ that at the time when she was pregnant out of wedlock with her daughter Masaba Gupta, he had offered her to marry him. He said, “I used to appreciate the fact that a girl at that time decided to have a child out of wedlock. As a true friend, I simply stood by her and gave her confidence.
Whatever you are reading in the memoir, it was all an expression of my affection for her as a friend. I was concerned about not letting her feel alone. At the end of the day, that’s what friends are for, right? As mentioned in the book, when I offered to marry her, it was a mix of humour, concern, respect, and support for my best friend in her time of need.” He added, “I told her, ‘Main hoon na, tu chinta kyu karti hai (I am here for you, you don’t have to worry)’. She was moved by the gesture and was in tears. From that day onwards, our friendship grew stronger,” he said.
