I always walked away from our conversations feeling good about life because that's what spending time with a good person does. It uplifts the soul.

Having to work with him on Milenge Milenge was just such an amazing experience, such a fun time shooting the film that it didn't feel like work! I still remember he offered me the role in the movie because he loved I played sweetu!

Satishji's passion for his craft and his ability to bring people together will always be remembered.

His passing is a great loss, but I take comfort in knowing that I did see him recently and that I will always have many fond memories of our time together.

I offer my heartfelt condolences to his family during this difficult time. Satishji zaroor milenge milenge. May his soul rest in peace.

Deepak Dobriyal: ऐक्टिंग किसे कहते हैं, कन्विक्शन और क्राफ़्ट क्या होता है, और किरदार कैसे ज़िंदा होता है ये सतीश सर से सीखो ।।ये सालों से हर नए ऐक्टर को कहता आया हूँ।

कहाँ से शुरू करूँ??? मिस्टर इंडिया के कैलेंडर से??या डैडी से??
दीवाना मस्ताना के पप्पू पेजर से,या क्लोज़ अप टॉप 10 se? स्कैम के मुंद्रा साहब से या कपिल शर्मा के शो से ।। मुझे सतीश सर को बस देखना है तो देखना है चाहे वो कहीं भी हो। मेरे लिए सतीश सर एक चलता फिरता चलचित्र थे।।

10 साल पहले मैं उनसे एक फ़िल्म के सिलसिले में शास्त्री नगर के उनके ऑफ़िस में मिला। वो मुझे कहानी सुना रहे थे जो वो डायरेक्ट करना चाह रहे थे। मैं उन्हें एकटक देखता रहा सुनता रहा ,, और मेरे चेहरे पे एक अनंत मुस्कान तैर रही थी पूरे नरेशन के दौरान।।और नरेशन के बाद उनसे बोला सर आप ऐक्टिंग मत छोड़िए।।तो वो बोले यार रोल ही नहीं लिख रहा कोई मेरे लिए।।

कुछ महीनो पहले एक अवार्ड फ़ंक्शन में उन्हें बेस्ट सपोर्टिंग ऐक्टर का अवार्ड मिला। उस अवार्ड फ़ंक्शन के लोगों को मेरी तरफ़ से शुक्रिया।। वहाँ उनका थोड़ा सा दर्द भी छलका उन्होंने कहा थैंक्स टू OTT अब हमें कहीं झुकने और किसी का इंतेज़ार करने की ज़रूरत नहीं।।

कुछ दिन पहले ही विशाल जी को बोला सर जिस फ़िल्म में सतीश कौशिक हैं वो फ़िल्म अपने आप ही 50 पर्सेंट कम्प्लीट हो गयी समझिए उन्हें कास्ट करते ही।।
"अर्रे भैया कहाँ से कट के जा रिए हो"?
"मेरा नाम है कैलेंडर"
"पाजी फँसा देते हो आप"

ना जाने उनके कितने संवाद और कितनी अदाएगी दिमाग़ में गूंज रही मेरे अभी।।
जहां रहो ख़ुश रहो सर।
अलविदा सतीश मनोरंजन कौशिक।।
ओम् शांति
