Last weekend, two actors who starred in the Colors TV show Mahakali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai, Gagan Kang and Arjit Lawania died in a car accident. Many actors took to social media to offer their condolences, but his former co-star, Barkha Bisht Sengupta was not happy with the turnout at his funeral. In a statement to Tellychakkar.com, she said –
Why were the others who posted on social media not present there yesterday? They claimed to be his friends, right? I knew him very well and it is heartbreaking. He loved life and was a god-fearing man. At times, he would be late on the sets because he would be busy with his daily pooja. It makes me question the existence of God.
She also revealed how excited Gagan was for Ganesh Chaturthi, she also dismissed reports of Gagan being allegedly drunk while driving the car on the day of their accident –
He would barely drink. He was a vegetarian during the festival periods. He was a non-smoker. So I cannot believe, he was drunk. He liked speeding indeed but he was careful and not reckless.
Gagan’s last rites began from his house in Malad to the crematorium on Marve Road. May his soul rest in peace.
