Sanjit Bedi, famous for playing the role of Dr Omi in hit TV show ‘Sanjivani’, passed away last night (June 23) in Mumbai. Sanjit’s sudden demise has left his colleagues in a state of shock. Many of them took to Twitter to express their grief over the death.
Gurdeep Kohli, who played Dr Juhi in ‘Sanjivani’, shared a very close bond with the late actor. She told Bollywoodlife.com: “He was a great human being. Sanjit had an amazing sense of humour and he always made me laugh, but today he’s made me cry. He kept everyone entertained during shoot and it was a lot of fun. It’s very very sad to see him go. When I heard the news I was remembering all the good old days, shooting together with him for Sanjeevani. Now we’ve lost a member of the family.”
“I actually got to know about it a month back. But due to my pregnancy I couldn’t go and see Sanjit. In fact, I can’t even pay my last respects because of my pregnancy,” she adds.
Gurdeep is married to actor Arjun Punj, who also featured in ‘Sanjivani’, and is pregnant with their second child.
Mihir Mishra, who played Dr Rahul in the show, told Bollywoodlife.com, “Sanjit Bedi was my first friend in this industry. His loss is too great and I will miss him.

He was a true and dear friend, he lived life king size and he went like one. He was always cheerful and on the sets of our show he always brought laughter.”
