TV actor Sanjit Bedi, who won million of hearts through his character Dr Omi of TV show “Sanjeevani”, died on Wednesday morning due to a viral condition of the brain, his friend and actor Karanvir Bohra said.
Karanvir, who featured with the deceased in TV series “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”, said Sanjit had been in hospital for the last one-and-half months and was battling with his condition for quite some time.
“He was in the ICU of Bombay Hospital here for the past one-and-half months. He had a brain virus for the last year-and-a-half. He breathed his last this morning and his cremation was performed in the afternoon,” Karanvir told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Sanjit appeared in a slew of shows like “Jaane Kya Baat Hui”, “Thodi Si Zameen Thoda Sa Aasman” and “Kyaa Hoga Nimmo Kaa”, among others. However, the actor was missing from the scene for quite some time. Sanjit, in his late 30s, is survived by his wife.
Karanvir, who is currently seen in “Qubool Hai”, recalled how they found friendship on the sets of TV show “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”.
“We got to know each other from ‘Kasautii…’ and we came really close. We were in touch since then. The man was full of life,” he said.
Karanvir also feels a void has been created in his life and he will take very long to come to terms with the loss.
“Imagining him to be silent and not being there will be weird,” he said.
Karanvir said “Sanjit went abroad for some work and after he came back he started practising yoga.”
