In the video, she could be heard saying, “Deepesh is not with us anymore, but his memories, words, will always remain with me. He was quite talkative and would often talk about his house, which he had bought for his family on loan. He then got married and had a son. He has gone, but we can repay all the happiness and love he has given us, by giving his son, that house.”
Tandon added that she has created a fund, in which the entire money will go to his wife so that she can repay the home loan. She went on to call Deepesh one of the “sweetest co-actors” she has worked with. Saumya further asserted that contributing to the fund will show that “good people don’t go unnoticed.”
Deepesh Bhan’s sudden demise left everyone in deep shock. Reportedly, he collapsed in the morning while playing cricket.
