Actor Mohit Baghel passed way on Saturday morning. We had told you that actor, who was suffering from Cancer, breathed his last in his hometown, Mathura. Many of the comedian's freinds are in shock with his death at such a young age. Amongst them is also Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor, Rohan Mehra, who was extremely close to Mohit.
We spoke to Rohan about the late actor and here's what he had to share:
Did you know that his condition was deteriorating?
He was suffering from Cancer from nearly one and half year but it was only six months back it got detected and since then his treatment was on at AIIMS and India's best doctor was treating him. He started getting bad stomach ache and then he got tested for it. As far as I know, the cancer was in his Kidney and then had slowly shifted to his chest, so things got critical as it was on the third stage already. Due to which they couldn't remove his Kidney, so his chemotherapy was on after which they were supposed to operate on him, but he passed away before that.
Who informed you about his death?
A friend of him from Mathura had direct messaged me on my Instagram. I got shocked and immediately made calls to those who were staying nearby in Mathura and they confirmed to me and said he died at his home.
When was the last time you spoke to him?
Just 3-4 days before his death. I had called him to discuss about one of my projects but he asked me to chat on messages as he was suffering from throat ulcers due to Chemo. He was in Mathura at that time and said the treatment is on and he is feeling better.
Tell us about how you met Mohit and when did you two become good friends?
We met on our film set, Uvaa and since then became best of friends. He was so close to me that all my birthdays and events would be incomplete without him. In fact, when I came back to Mumbai for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai after my Cape Town schedule, I stayed at his place for almost 15 days. And when I shifted to my bunglow in Royal palms he used to often visit there and we used to chill together. We had shared a lot of secrets with each other and discussed work also. He was a very creative person and guided me whenever I asked for it. In fact ,this sad news of him being diagnosed with Cancer also reached to me when I had called him to discuss one of my projecs. .
I still remember the day- I was flying to Dubai to shoot a music video and was at the airport. I called him to take a suggestion and that's when he shared this disturbing news with me.
When was the last time you met him?
Few months back, I had gone to Noida for promotions of my web series, Class Of 2020. So after work, I went to his home, where he was staying for his treatment. And we had clicked a picture also but I didn't know it will be the last picture with him.
Was he fine that time?
His condition was critical at that point also but he was very sure that he will get well soon. He was very strong and positive towards it and told me, I will be fine hundred percent. Usko bilkul bhi dar nahi tha ki vo itni badi bimari se lad raha hai.
Have you spoken to his parents?
Unfortunately I don't have their numbers. I have met them once at his Mathura house but I feel really bad that I couldn't go and be with them during their hardest time, due to the lockdown. But my prayers are always with them. He was an amazing person and very helpful. I am going to miss him forever.
