The last two days have been tragic. Today morning, we got the news that Nitesh Pandey has passed away. On the show Anupamaa, he plays the role of Dheeraj who is the BFF of Anuj (Gaurav Khanna). He was one of the strongest supporters of MaAn’s relationship. Rupali Ganguly and Nitesh Pandey had been friends for a long time. She has said, “He had messaged me last week about a painting he had made. We had made plans to make our sons meet.” It seems their sons are almost the same age. Nitesh Pandey is married to actress Arpita Pandey.
Sharing fond memories about her bond with Nitesh, Rupali says, “He was the only industry friend who stayed constantly in touch with me apart from Delnaaz and the Sarabhai cast during my sabbatical. He had even come to meet me after Rudransh was born. I can’t believe this! His son Aarav is just a few months older than Rudransh. He had messaged me just last week about a painting he had made and we had made plans to make our sons meet. ”
The actress further says, “We would bond over dogs. His wife Arpita is an animal care giver, feeder too like me. I am devastated! He was so so so fiercely protective about me.” Rupali Ganguly is known for her love for stray dogs. She takes care of a number of them on the sets of Anupamaa.
The actress said she cannot believe her close friend is no more. She said, “Even when he came to Anupamaa, it felt as if you have your bestie next to you at your work place. Just this month’s beginning, I had gone very late for a film’s get together and saw his car leaving. So, I called him and said I saw you and he said tu ruk main aata hoon gaadi ghumake , and I said no no ghar jaa agale hafte milte hai. Teen hafte ho gaye uss baat ko and now I will never meet him. I can’t believe this!”
