ETimes spoke to Shilpi Dasgupta who directed the 2019 movie ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’. Shilpi was, to say the least, aghast. She mentioned that she hadn’t discovered the unhappy information about Sandeep’s demise earlier than we known as her. The director mentioned that she was baffled that Sandeep had taken such a drastic step. “I am really taken aback,” she mentioned.
Was she in contact with Sandeep, we requested? “Sandeep was very active on Facebook. Whenever there was a good role or function, he would always message. Whenever there was an opportunity to greet, he would do that.”
And how had she forged him in her directorial debut, we requested? “Well, that was a process. Actors generally come through a casting director and auditions,” she replied.
“Sandeep was a fantastic gentleman, always very eager to help. He was also a very talented and devoted actor,” Shilpi added.
