Karanvir, who acted with Sanjit in serial “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”, used words like “energetic” and “vibrant” to describe his friend.
“The man was full of life and energetic. One would forget about their own problem in his company,” Karanvir told IANS.
Karanvir also added that “Sanjit went abroad for some work and after he came back he started practising yoga.”
