On Saturday, veteran Punjabi actor Satish Kaul passed away at the age of 74 due to Covid-19 related complications. He had featured in several Hindi films and shows and is remembered for his role as  Lord Indra in BR Chopra's "Mahabharat". 

Kaul was admitted to a city hospital after he developed a fever six days ago, said his sister, Satya Devi. 

"He died today morning due to Covid-19 at the hospital. He had a fever and wasn't keeping well. We admitted him to the hospital on Thursday and got him tested, where it turned out that he was Covid-19 positive," Satya Devi told PTI.

Kaul is survived by his sister.

The actor worked in over 300 Punjabi and Hindi films including "Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha", "Aunty No 1" and the TV show "Vikram Aur Betaal".

Kaul moved to Punjab from Mumbai and started an acting school around 2011, which wasn't a success.

He fractured his hip bone in 2015 and remained bedridden for two and a half years. He later checked in to an old age home, where he stayed till 2019, before moving into a rented house.

In an interview with PTI in May last year, Kaul had said he was struggling for medicines, groceries and basic needs during the nationwide lockdown and had appealed to the film industry for help.

Kaul had expressed his wish to buy a house of his own in the city and had hoped to act more.

"The fire to act is still alive in me. It isn't over. I wish someone gives me a role even today, any role, and I would do it. I'm raring to act again," he said.
