Ludhiana: The veteran actor Satish Kaul who featured in several Hindi films and shows including “Mahabharat”, died on Saturday due to COVID-19 related complications in Ludhiyana, Punjab.
Reportedly, the actor, popular for playing the role of Lord Indra in BR Chopra’s “Mahabharat”, was admitted to a city hospital after he developed fever six days ago. He died today at the age of 74 due to COVID-19 related complications.
The actor began his career in the early ’70s, juggling between Hindi and Punjabi films.
