Deeply saddened to know about the sad demise of my friend #NavtejHundal. We did so many plays together during our initial years in Mumbai. He was always positive and had the most infectious smile. Will miss him and his optimism. My condolences to his family. Om Shanti.🙏 pic.twitter.com/aAPwzpEupg— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) April 9, 2019
